MotoMods will purportedly range from $89 USD for the JBL speakers up to $299 USD for the attachable DLP projector.

While MotoMods were a major announcement at this year's Lenovo Tech World, the manufacturer held back on announcing any prices and instead gave the generic "wait until closer to launch" answer whenever the press asked. Currently, no other smartphone features a similar concept except for the LG G5 while Google's Project Ara is not expected to be publicly available until 2017. Even then, the G5 requires the battery to be removed when switching mods. The Moto Z has the edge in this regard as the pins are on the back of the device for easier hot swapping.

A user on Reddit has supposedly revealed the final launch prices of some MotoMods via Verizon Wireless sources where the Moto Z and Moto Z Force will be available exclusively in the U.S. If true, the prices will be a bit higher than initially anticipated:

  • Motorola Insta Share Projector MotoMod - 299 Dollars
  • TUMI PowerPack with Wireless Charging - 99 Dollars
  • TUMI PowerPack without Wireless Charging - 89 Dollars
  • JBL Soundboost speakers - 79 Dollars

Assuming a price point of about $500 to $700 USD for the Moto Z or Z Force, users can easily spend well over $1000 on a smartphone with a handful of MotoMods. Nonetheless, the manufacturer explicitly stated that it expects most owners to purchase just one or two MotoMods on average.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
