Moto Z Phones - Mod Capable Future???

2020-02-19, 16:22 PM

So, I'm still running my original Z Force Droid that was sent as a replacement to my Turbo 2.  Imho, this Z Force has been a great phone, still is, and I see no real need to upgrade other than Android 8.0 and no security updates since 11/2018.

 

I have accumulated a number of Mods that I like alot. Even just bought another Incipio Offgrid Wireless Power Pack as my current one is starting to fade.

 

That all said, I'm wondering if there is any official word on the future of the Z series?  We all know that the Z4 is the only remaining phone in the line, and I definitely want to time my next upgrade to ensure that the next phone still works with my stuff.  Do we have any confirmation of a Z5?  Or better yet, a flagship Z5 Force?  I know they originally claimed they would maintain the Mod Capable line for only a few years, but has the EOL been determined? Just trying to figure out if I need to get the Z4 soon, or if a Z5 has been confirmed as in the works.  Open to PM's as well.

 

TIA.

No, nothing official.  Keep in mind that Moto said that they would make 3 years of Moto Z phones with Moto Mod support....then made a Moto Z4 in the 4th year.  So.....will there be a Z5?  I seriously doubt it.  I think the Z line is over, there have been no new Moto Mods for years and there are very few left to buy.

Well, that's kind of what I thought, but I seem to recall at least 4 years. But obviously, things change.  Naturally, if they are planning to go another year, the insiders would know about it, and you would think there would be no harm in letting that float out there.

 

BTW - You can find Mods around if you look. I just picked up a new Incipio Offgrid Wireless Powerpak as the old one is starting to slide. These things are worth their weight in gold, Imho.

I have heard some rumors online about a possible Moto z5 with 5000Ah battery.
