Motorola unveiled today the Moto X Style , Moto X Play and moto G 2015 which we have referred to in a previous news.
Motorola Moto X Style
The Moto X Style is the
top model of the bunch, with the specs to prove it. It comes with a 5.7-inch
QHD display with an exemplary 76% screen-to-body ratio.
The smartphone is
powered by Snapdragon 808, a notch below Qualcomm’s flagship S810, but also
LG’s choice for their current top model, the G4. There’s a 1.8GHz hexa-core CPU
inside the chip, complemented by 3GB of RAM. Three storage options will be
available, and the built-in 16/32/64GB will be expandable by up to 128GB via
The Moto X Style sports
a 21MP primary camera, with an f/2.0 lens and phase detection autofocus, joined
by what's dubbed a Dual Color Correlated Temperature (CCT) flash. Of course,
the camera is capable of recording 4K video, in HDR too.
Motorola stresses that
DxO rated the Moto X Style’s camera as one of the top three cameras in the
world. No such claims are being made about the front snapper, but it does
feature a 5MP sensor, 87-degree wide-angle lens, and a front-facing flash.
The smartphone comes with a 3,000mAh battery, which isn't record breaking but Motorola pointed out that the Moto X Style offers fast charging with a bundled TurboCharger 25, which will get you 34% of charge in as little as 15 minutes.
A recurrent theme
throughout Motorola’s keynote was pricing, though obvious regional
considerations prevented precise numbers. Still, the Motorola Moto X Style will
cost $399 in the States, unlocked. Perhaps the only fly in the ointment is that
you won’t be able to get one until September.
Motorola Moto X Play
The Moto X Play is the
lower-specced of the two Xs but it does offer a balanced package geared towards
This model comes with a
slightly smaller 5.5-inch FullHD display, Snapdragon 615 chipset and 2GB of
RAM. Only two storage options are present - 16GB and 32GB, but the microSD slot
can provide an additional 128GB.
The 21MP f/2.0 camera
has been carried over from the Style, though video capture is limited to 1080p
(the S615 doesn’t support 2160p on a hardware level). The front shooter is a
5MP unit again, though it’s lost the flash in this model.
It is battery life
Motorola is after with this one, and it comes with a 3,630mAh battery, which
the company claims is good for 48 hours of mixed use. There’s fast charging
supported, though the TurboCharger 15 is optional.
The Moto X Play will
cost $299 and will be available sooner, with 60 countries globally getting it in
