The Motorola Moto Z series is said to be gearing up for a launch at the Lenovo Tech World Conference 2016 to be held on June 9.

For those not in the know, it is the Moto X series that the company has apparently re-branded to Moto Z. According to a report on VentureBeat, the marketing material of the device revealed the change in the branding.  Leaks and rumors so far have given a clear picture of what to expect when it comes to the upcoming flagship.

So far, whispers about the MotoMods revealed backplates of sort for the smartphone which allow for customizing the gadget. The earlier leak of the device showed a 16-pin port on the rear panel and this is exactly where the Mods will be connected. According to report on PhoneArena, one of the MotoMods allows for converting the device into a camera. The add-on is complete with a shutter button, lens cover as well as optical zoom.

A recent leak has also highlighted “replaceable rear covers” for the smartphone, dubbed as StyleMods. These can be easily put on the back of the device to customize it. These StyleMods are created with different materials such as ballistic nylon, wood and leather.

So, the Moto Z going the modular way may well be the talking point since it appears that it is taking it a step ahead as compared to the existing model in the market. However, with the launch only a day away, fans will soon witness the arrival of this highly anticipated device along with all its accessories.

The Moto Z is also expected to be equipped with an AMOLED screen complete with the shatter shield technology. Fans may recollect that the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 employed the same technology to deliver “shatterproof” display.¬†Keep checking back for more rumors, speculations and updates on the Motorola Moto Z lineup.
