Moto X was missing from India event, but Motorola did announce, not one but two Moto Xs for global markets yesterday. Moto X Style and its affordable sibling Moto X Play, will be launched in specific markets September onwards. Don’t expect them to arrive in India anytime soon.


The Moto X Style blends performance and style. It has a massive 5.7 Inch display with QHD resolution, fired by 1.8 GHz Hexa Core Snapdragon 808 with 3 GB RAM. Interestingly, Motorola has ditched AMOLED panels on both Moto X phones this year. That also means Moto Display won’t be as battery efficient any more.

Moto X Play on the other hand includes a slightly smaller 5.5 Inch display with 1080p Full HD resolution, powered by mid range Snapdragon 615 octa core chip and 2 GB RAM. This one also flaunts a mammoth 3630 mAh battery and still manages to be 10 grams lighter.
