After announcing an upgrade for the Moto G (2014), Motorola took the stage to announce upgrade to the Moto X smartphone, which took us by surprise, the company unveiled two variants of the smartphone named as Style and Play- both of them carrying different internals altogether.
Moto X Play
Moto X Play, will feature a 5.5 inch FullHD display giving it a pixel density of 400ppi, running a Snapdragon 615 Octa Core Processor clocked at 1.7GHz paired with 2GB RAM, a contextual natural language processor- which will help the users to efficiently understand spoken language and the context. Camera front stands at 21MP Rear Camera with a 5MP Front camera with a flash- when you want to take a selfie at night.
Now coming to the best spec of the smartphone, the batter, a 3,630 mAh battery will push the device to 48hours use (as claimed by the company). While we are not sure about two days battery backup in a single charge but can assume that the smartphone would give atlas one and a half day depending upon the actual use.
Moto X Style
Coming to the Moto X Style, the more advance Moto X variant, the smartphone features a 5.7inch QHD IPS LCD display which amounts to a pixel density of 515ppi, which is rather huge for a smartphone, but this is the age of QuadHD and we expect no less.
