If there's something that gives a sharp edge to the Moto Z series, it is its modular design that supports different Moto Mod accessories. And now, Lenovo's Moto brand has partnered with Polaroid to expand the existing concept by adding a photo printer module called the Insta-Share Printer Mod. The new Moto Mod will be available for purchase through Verizon later this week with a price tag of $199.99 (approximately Rs. 13,000) and will hit global markets in the coming months.
Polaroid's Insta-Share Printer Mod lets you capture your memories through your Moto Z smartphone and then print them live, without relying on third-party hardware. The Mod can also print your images directly from Facebook, Instagram and Google Photos. Moreover, it is capable of printing 2x3-inch smudge-proof photos with customisable filters, boarders, and text.
You need to snap the Insta-Share Printer Mod to your Moto Z and then click the physical button to launch the camera. Once you've locked your subjects or objects in the frame, the module is ready to take their prints.
The proprietary photo printer Moto Mod supports Polaroid Premium Zink Zero-Ink Paper that can be stuck as a sticker using the adhesive available on its back. Further, the module comes with some sample sheets, but you need to pay $20 (roughly Rs. 1,300) for getting a pack of 50 sheets.
"Your Moto z already captures all your favourite moments, and now you can treasure them with the latest innovation in instant printing. The Polaroid Insta-Share Printer brings your photos to life in seconds, letting you enjoy photos beyond your smartphone screen," Moto said in a blog post.
The Insta-Share Printer Mode adds a thickness of 20.4mm to your Moto Z device and enhances its weight by 188 grams. Also, it packs a 500mAh battery that can last for 20 prints.
Last month, Motorola had tied up with Amazon to launch the Moto Speaker with Amazon Alexa Mod. The splash-resistant module went on sale in the US at $150 (approximately Rs. 9,800).
