Moto X Style and Moto X Play Announced, Motorola Ditches AMOLED Displays

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.
