Picture Perfect: The New Moto Z Play and Hasselblad True Zoom

Our Moto Mods family already includes the JBL SoundBoost speaker so you can take the party with you, the Insta-Share Projector so you can share content as you want, and power packs from Incipio so you’re never without battery when you need it most.
But that was just the beginning.
We know mobile photography is important to all consumers. Moments captured on-the-go are some of our most precious memories. That’s why we’re taking the smartphone camera experience to the next level with the Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod.
