Motorola unveils Moto X Style, Moto X Play smartphones


NEW DELHI: Hours after its India unit unveiled the third-generation Moto G smartphone, Motorola announced two new smartphones of its Moto X range in the US.

While the new Moto X Style is priced at $ 399 (unlocked), its smaller sibling Moto X Play costs $ 299 off-contract. The former will hit the market in September, and the latter in August.

Notably, Moto X Style will be in direct competition with the new OnePlus 2 smartphone, which costs $ 389 (Rs 24,999 in India). However, there is no word when the company will bring Moto X Style to the Indian market.

Moto X Style sports a 5.7-inch QHD (1440x2560p) resolution and runs on the 1.8GHz hexa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 808 chipset with 3GB RAM. It will come with 64GB of internal storage, with microSD card support up to 128GB. The smartphone has a 5MP front camera, 3,000mAh battery, and universal 4G support, and the “world’s fastest turbo charging technology.”

Moto X Play, on the other hand, has a 5.5-inch Full HD (1080x1920p) screen and is powered by the 1.7GHz octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB RAM. The smartphone offers dual-sim support, 32GB built-in storage and has a hybrid microSD+sim slot. It runs on a 3,630mAh battery and has a 5MP front camera.

According to Motorola, the 21MP rear cameras of both Moto X Style and Moto X Play are the best in their respective classes. Both smartphones also have a splash-resistant coating to protect them from water damage.

On the software side, the new Motorola smartphones will come preloaded with stock Android 5.1 (Lollipop) operating system, with minimal proprietary apps and features.
