Upcoming Camera Module for Lenovo's Moto Z to feature 10X Optical Zoom

When Lenovo launched the Moto Z, it announced three modular accessories for the phone, but new leaks have offered us a glimpse of a camera module which has been under the wraps so far.

The upcoming camera module for Moto Z and Z Force will feature 10X optical zoom which is unprecedented for a smartphone's camera accessory.

When the Moto Z and Moto Z Force were launched, Lenovo introduced a number of accessories named Moto Mods™ like a Moto Insta-Share projector, a JBL SoundBoost speaker and Incipio offGRID™ Power Pack which could seamless work with the phones. According to TechDroider, yet another Moto Mod- a portable camera module will be released by Lenovo soon. The site adds that the module will arrive with 10x optical zoom, a physical shutter, a zoom lens and a xenon flash which is much brighter than generally-used LED flash.

Like regular cameras, the shutter button in the camera module can be rotated to zoom in or zoom out subject images and the module will also carry a power button to turn it on or off. This won't be the first time that you'll get to use a phone camera/accessory with 10x optical zoom as Samsung and Sony have previously launched phones with such zooming capabilities.

With IFA in Berlin a couple of weeks away, we are hopeful that Lenovo will announce the new modular accessory along with its new devices. Recently, Lenovo released a teaser video about several products it is expected to make public at IFA next month. Apart from nearly-announcing a new tablet and a successor to the Moto 360 2nd Gen, the video also gave a glimpse of a few MotoMods that the company may announce at a press event on August 31st.
