One of the modulator functions of a digital walkie-talkie is, it allows communicating securely with friends and other nearby devices without using any cellular line. The Moto Mods are held on with magnets and fit around the camera lens. The Mods are allowing a third-party ecosystem and making it compatible with mobile phones.

To provide insight, the Modulator turns the cellular phone into a digital walkie-talkie operating within the frequency of 902-928 Mhz ISM. This implies that user can now easily talk to his friends and relatives staying nearby or close neighbors for free with the help of the modulator.

Furthermore, Mod is activating a software which uses a strong and reliable encryption that assures users personal commands stay protected at any cost. The modulator even permits users to send messages to nearby devices without using the cellular services.

It is powered by 1.8GHZ quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. It also packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 2000GB through a microSD card.

The Moto Mod's camera packs with a main camera of 13-megapixel on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies. It runs on Android 6.0.1 and it is powered by a 26000mAh non-removable battery. It measures 153.30 in height, 75.30 in widths, 5.19 in of thickness, and weighs 136.00 grams.

Lenovo is building an ecosystem of sensors that can be accessed directly from a Moto Z device with Moto Mod. The target frequency bands are license free and present no cost to the users. It kicks off an Indiegogo campaign last January, however, it is not exactly clear what the crowd funding effort will entail but it will focus on getting developers more involved in the Mods category.

The Enterprise and Consumer Version of the Modulator software are sharing many features including AES-256 encryption and randomized frequency. The Moto Mod apps support multiple channels with each channel protected by a secret key that never shared over the network.
