Lenovo -owned Motorolahas announced a new Moto Mod for its Moto Z line-up of modular smartphones. Dubbed Moto 360 Camera Mod, it was launched alongside the company’s latest flagship smartphone – Moto Z2 Force . As the name suggests, it’s a 360-degree camera.
The mod comes with two camera lenses. The camera attachment sits on the top of a plastic back plate, which has to be attached to a Moto Z phone just like any other Moto Mod.
Moto 360 Camera Mod was unveiled by the company at an event in Ghana earlier this month, but has been made official now.
Not much is known about the new mod yet, but reports suggest that it can record 4K video with 3D sound. Moto 360 Camera Mod includes two 13MP sensors capable of capturing 150-degree wide-angle shots, one at a time. It also has the ability to shoot full 360-degree spherical panoramic shots and 360-degree 4K video at 24fps.
To ensure that images of the entire surroundings are captured, the sensors are positioned on both sides of the mod. The mod is powered by the battery of the smartphone with which it is connected.
The new mod is compatible with all smartphones in the company’s Z line-up, including the recently-launched Moto Z2 Force. However, it will only work once the company rolls out an update for Moto Z smartphones.Motorola has also announced that Moto 360 Camera Mod will be priced at $299.99 and will be available starting August 10.
