Motorola, which is owned by Lenovo, says its fix could work on future phone models it makes. At launch, the Motorola Moto Z, Z Force, and Moto Z Play have come with the option to connect an InstaShare projector to your phone. This projector can broadcast images up to 70 inches.

Moto Z and Moto Z Force
Motorola has entered the modular phone market with the launch of the Moto Z and Moto Z Force with an InstaShare projector. Both devices have 16 pins on the back for adding ‘modes’.
A projector, speaker or battery pack can be ‘snapped’ to the back of the phone to expand its capabilities. Both devices announced on stage by Ashton Kutcher and Motorola’s SVP of Software Engineering, Seag Chay, are the first devices to feature Motorola’s ‘mode’.
The basic idea behind the attachable modular segments is to allow phone users to extend their phone’s capabilities without having to purchase another device. “Moto Mods instantly turn your smartphone into a whole new device,” said Chay.
There is also a JBL SoundBoost that can amplify the sound on your phone. The final initial option (Motorola says it’s working on more) is a battery case that can be strapped to your phone. The power pack is said to be able to extend the phone’s battery life up to 22 hours.
Both new phones will run on Android and will go on sale later this year. It was released first in the US and then worldwide in September.
Each product is equipped with a “TurboPower Charge” feature by Motorola that quickly re-energizes the device. If the battery is “severely depleted,” it’s said that just 15 minutes of charging can add eight hours of battery life to the phone.
The Force Z, the higher spec of the two devices, could charge to 50 per cent in under 20 minutes. The battery capacity of the Force Z is 3500 mAh and the Z’s 2600 mAh battery. The Force also has a 21-megapixel camera compared to the Z’s 13MP rear camera.
Moto Z Play
The Moto Z Play packs a beautiful 5.5-inch 1080p HD Super AMOLED display into a thin metal frame. Photos, videos and games appear bright and beautiful, with vivid colours and intricate details that blend perfectly with the sleek and elegant design.
The Moto Insta-Share Projector mounts easily to your Moto Z phone, so you can instantly share your vacation photos or buzzy videos with everyone. Projects up to 70 inches on a flat surface, so you always have a big screen available.
The ultra-thin Moto Insta-Share projector comes with an integrated kickstand so you can easily project from any angle. And with a battery life of up to 1 hour, you can project longer without using up your phone’s battery.
Play games, stream videos, and multitask without missing a beat. A super-smooth 2.0GHz octa-core processor coupled with 3GB of ultra-fast memory can handle any task.
Remembering passwords can be difficult. Moto Z Play does it for you. Instantly and securely unlock your phone to access the home screen, log in to banking applications, or make mobile payments. Just a simple touch using the fingerprint reader.
Moto Mods™ allow you to do things you never thought possible on your phone. Bring your imagination to life with interchangeable backs that secure to your phone with powerful integrated magnets. Whatever your passion, there’s a Moto Mod for you.
There’s nothing worse than finding an outlet to charge your phone after only a few hours of use. Fortunately, the Moto Z Play offers up to 50 hours of battery life*, so you can play farther and longer on a single charge.
If time is money and money is power, the TurboPower charger really is money. Just 15 minutes of charging gives you up to 9 hours of power, so it powers up almost instantly.
With a 16MP camera and two built-in autofocus technologies, the Moto Z Play delivers sharp images faster. Laser autofocus and phase-detection autofocus (PDAF) work quickly so you never miss a scene, day or night.
The front 5 MP camera includes a wide-angle lens so you can easily capture everyone in the picture. Thanks to the extra flash, your friends and family will look their best even in low light.
