Smartphone: Motorola Announces Moto X Style, Moto X Play And Moto G (3rd Gen)

Motorola recently announced three smartphones – Moto X Style, Moto X Play and Moto G (3rd Gen) – for the international market.

Being the flagship device, Moto X Style – known as Moto X Pure Edition in the United States – boasts an impressive line of specifications. It will cost $200 to $300 less than other 2015 flagship devices.

In the U.S., the pricing of Moto X Style will start at $399.

According to Droid Life, the Moto X Play will be available in markets outside the U.S. It has longer battery life and a 1080p display. The Moto G (3rd Gen) goes on sale for $179.

Moto X Style features a sloping back and curves along the edges, like last year’s releases Moto X and Nexus 6. It is available in an array of colors and textured backs, and in three aluminum frames: gold, silver and grey.

According to Gizmodo, what separates Moto X Style from Moto X (of last year) is the enhanced sensor that activates Moto X Style’s Moto Display with less error rate. Moto X Style is equipped with a Snapdragon 808 processor, which does not cause any lag in the hands-on mode.

However, Motorola opted to go for an LCD display instead of an AMOLED one that didn’t cause Moto X to drain the battery with the always-on Moto Display. The company claims that the LCD panel and Snapdragon 808 processor will provide users with an all-day battery life – even without OLED displays

The company also asserts that it has improved the camera of Moto X – and made it better than the iPhone 6. Although pictures taken in low-light conditions had less grain than iPhone 6, it still needs to be seen whether what the company asserts is actually correct or not.

Moto X Play has a Snapdragon 615 SoC, which – with the octa-core Cortex A53 CPU and Adreno 405 GPU – is closer to Snapdragon 410 (Moto G 3rd Gen) than Snapdragon 808 (Moto X Style). While the RAM is considerably lower at 2GB, some of the other impressive features make up for it. The display is 5.5 inches and has a resolution of 1080p.

Moto X Play has a 21MP camera with dual color temperature flash, with an aperture at f/2.25. It has single front-ported speaker unlike Moto X Style’s which boasts a dual stereo speaker.

Moto G is out globally, while Moto X Style and Moto X Play will be released later this summer.
