If you are a satisfied Motorola customer, here is something that will make you happier. If you snagged one of the company’s latest phones in their new Z line, you’ll be happy to hear that commitment to the Moto Mods program has been reinforced completely.

The Lenovo subsidiary has expressed that it will work on no less than 12 new Mods on an annual basis. In the coming year we may see even more of them since the firm plans to release an Indiegogo campaign in order to enhance interest between smaller developers, whose ideas will be assessed and prized with a Mods kit.
The idea of a modular phone is without doubt a great one and one that’s being played with by various manufacturers, albeit with several degrees of (un)success. For example, LG tried to improve its G5 with its “Friends”. In the same way, Google‘s Project Ara was just aiming too high not to be axed completely. However, that hasn’t stopped Motorola to continue its efforts. Considering that these Mods are by their nature part of an environment lock in, to transmit the plan forward Lenovo would have had to think it this way from the get go. It is indeed wonderful to see the idea is going to be taken to the next level.
We don’t really know much about the type of Moto Mods we are to see, but cameras are seemingly on top of the list. The system’s flexibility has the prospective to make all kinds of Mods possible, and we’d undoubtedly be happy to see them thrive. And we hope users will feel the same way.
