It's been a tumultuous few years for Motorola. With the company having been acquired by Google in 2012 and then sold off and purchased by Lenovo in 2014. Motorola has not officially been available in South Africa for many years. This, however, has all changed in the last few months of 2016. Official word is that Motorola will be making a return to South Africa with the Moto Z and the Hasselblad Moto Mod. Both of which were unveiled at IFA 2016 in Berlin just a few weeks ago.    

What Is a Moto Mod?

Motorola's Moto Mods family already includes the following:
  • JBL SoundBoost speaker
  • The Insta-Share Projector - so you can share content as you want
  • Power packs from Incipio - so you’re never without battery
But that was just the beginning of the modular concept for Motorola.
