Step back, LG G5. There's a funky new modular smartphone on sale in Australia, and it's also -- in its standard, straight-out-of-the-box guise -- the world's thinnest. Motorola's Moto Z measures just 5.2mm from front to back, but still has the latest in high-tech hardware under the hood. Where LG's top Android phone ejects its modular components like a pistol's magazine, though, the Moto Z snaps them onto its rear case to add extra battery power, a high-res camera or a more powerful speaker.

Moto Z, Moto Z Play and Moto Mods launched today in Australia. We're looking at two flagship smartphones and a collection of mods that clip onto the back -- a super zoom camera, a battery pack,a big screen projector and a boombox.

Here's all the details -- including when you can pick them up, and for how much.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

The Moto Z Force Droid Edition and Moto Z Droid Edition have just been announced, and the most distinctive feature is the snap-on Moto Mods.

Attaching magnetically, there's already a battery pack, a speaker and a projector in the range -- so far.
