In a press event in New Delhi, Motorola announced three new Moto Mods for its premium flagship Moto Z franchise in India.

The three new Mods are the JBL SoundBoost 2 speaker Mod, Moto TurboPower Pack battery Mod, and the GamePad Mod. Moto Mods snap on magnetically to the back of the handset allowing users to transform their Moto Z series smartphones to add advanced functionality

Priced at ₹6,999 ($109), the GamePad Mod allows you to transform your Moto Z into a handheld gaming console with a simple snap. At ₹6,999 ($109), the upgraded, second-generation JBL SoundBoost 2 transforms your phone into a speaker for house parties with 10 hours of playtime built right in. The Moto TurboPower Pack Mod is priced at ₹5,999 ($94) and adds an extra day of battery life to your smartphone.

All three Mods will be on sale at Flipkart and across all Motorola exclusive stores – the Moto Hubs, starting December 17.

We are ending the year on an exciting note and have upheld our commitment to build a better mobile future with the promise of limitless possibilities, through the new mods. The partnership with RentoMojo is basis our understanding our customers’ better and ensuring that we work relentlessly to remove barriers that deter them from adopting new innovations. This is a unique concept and we are positive that our customers will embrace it.

– Sudhin Mathur, Managing Director, Motorola Mobility India
