Camera wise, it features a 21 MP f/2.0 rear camera which is capable for 1080p video recording. The front-facing unit is same as Moto G (3rd gen) – 5 MP.

Battery is the selling point of the Moto X Play. It packs a 3,630 mAh battery, which the company claims is good for 48 hours of mixed use. The device supports fast charging as well, but only if you purchased the TurboCharger 15.

The Moto X Play will be available starting in August in various countries across Europe, Latin America, and Canada. Nope, the device won’t be available US.

Moto X Style

The Moto X Style is the top model of the bunch. Its display has been bumped up to 5.7″ with QHD resolution, that’s around 520 ppi pixel density.

Like the LG G4, the Moto X Style is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with 3 GB of RAM. Three storage options will be available, and all will be expandable via MicroSD card up to 128 GB.

The Moto X Style shares the same 21 MP camera as the Moto X Play, but it is able to record up to 4K video thanks to the better processor.

Sadly, the battery isn’t as big as the Moto X Play – 3,000 mAh. However, the device supports fast charging as well with bundled TurboCharger 25, which will get you 34% of charge in as little as 15 minutes.

The Moto X Style will be available in countries across Europe, Latin America and North America starting in September.
