Lenovo brand Moto has expanded its ongoing partnership with Amazon by launching a new Moto Mod with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant. The new speaker attachment by Moto is available in the US with a price tag of $150 (approximately Rs. 9,800) and is compatible with Moto Z series handsets. Notably, the new launch comes days after the Moto X4 debuted with Alexa integration.
Called the Moto Speaker with Amazon Alexa, the new Moto Mod has two, 27mm diameter speakers with 8W power to produce stereo sound. Four far-field microphones are also available to help you pass your voice commands directly to the speaker by saying hotword, “Alexa”. The modular attachment packs a 1530mAh battery that delivers up to 15 hours of life on a single charge, as per the company’s claim. Furthermore, the speaker has an advanced nano-coating that makes it a splash-resistant accessory for your Moto Z phone.
What makes the new Alexa-powerd Moto Mod an attractive piece of technology is the blue LED ring which is featured on its back. The LED ring glows just like the one on an Echo device – distinguishes the new modular attachment with the existing JBL Soundboost 2 that has similar stereo speaker construction with a 1000mAh battery.
