India has finally got the very due upgrade of Moto X. Out of the two variants, India gets the Moto X Play. Nobody knows if higher spec’d Moto X Pure/Style will ever make an appearance. For now let’s just see what Moto X Play has in store for us.
This variant of Moto X has the Snapdragon 615 processor and 2GB RAM. It’s the only phone to feature 21MP in this segment but don’t keep your hopes high as Motorola was never famous for cameras. Unlike 2K display on Pure/Style, Play has a 1080p display. But the eye-catcher is the 3630 mAh battery of Moto X Play. That’s highest in its own segment and maybe a segment above it. And with that kind of hardware, this battery should last really long. There’s dual SIM support with 4G LTE on Indian bands.
Moto X Play is available in two memory variants, 16GB, and 32GB. But worry not as it has a microSD slot as well. The 16GB version will cost about $279 or INR 18,499 while the 32GB is for ~$300 or INR 19,999. As good as US unlocked pricing. At this price it has to compete with a pile of phones and especially the likes of Asus Zenfone 2, OnePlus One.
