Moto X Play – If Moto G and Moto X Style Had A Baby

Along with the 2015 Moto G and new Moto X Style, Motorola also launched Moto X Play. The company seems to have carved some space between the mid-range Moto G and the absolute flagship Moto X Style.

Look at Moto X Play as a toned down version of its elder sibling. Well, not in every sense as Moto X Play actually has a bigger battery than Moto X Style.


It sports a Snapdragon 615 1.7GHz octa-core processor and 2GB RAM. Motorola has been generous enough to it the same 21MP camera (with dual-tone LED flash) from the Style. But it can’t do 4K UltraHD videos. The display is slightly smaller at 5.5 inch with FullHD 1080p resolution opposed to 2K HD on Style. It’s got a 3630 mAh battery which Moto says should last for up to 48hrs. It features the same new design as other two new Moto phones and is customizable on Moto Maker with 98 combos.

Moto currently doesn’t have plans to bring it to the US market, but it is coming to the 55 countries next month. No word on Asia Pacific availability as well. Moto hasn’t said a word about its pricing but judging by the prices of new Moto G ($220) and $399 for Style, Moto X Play should be on the either sides of $300.
