    Check this hot hot hot Droid leak! Supposedly, the images you see above are the new Lenovo made Droids coming to Verizon later this year. Additionally, those backplates are supposedly swappable and are called MotoMods!

    Not only that, but these backplates include the ability to attach add-on modules with different features as options: one is a projector, one is a set of JBL speakers and the third is a Hasselblad camera. The word given is that these devices will be unveiled on June 9th. Holy crap! That's less than two weeks away! :D

    Very exciting... the new modules should breathe some new life into the Droid line.

    I have to say... I am enamored with the design of these new Droid backplates. That black and gold one is smokin! I especially like the textured metallic design!

    yeah, obviously more for functionality than design. However, I love the 360 like flat tire for the camera lens! (I still love my Moto 360.)

    Haha, you picked up on that too! I wonder if they didn't do that on purpose to take some of the heat off the Moto 360...nah, I doubt it but it's still very coincidental if not.

    They look nice. Love the Black one but would prefer would Black and Chrome/Silver/Titanium. I bet these modules will be pricey.

    Definitely curious to see what all Moto reveals on June 9th; and then what they actually release later this year.
