Moto X Play and Moto X Style aka Moto X Pure Smartphones Launched

Sometimes one phone isn't enough for a company to please everyone. Sometimes it needs two. Or in case of Motorola on Tuesday that number is three - or four, depending upon how you see it. If the Moto G 3rd Gen smartphone that the company announced a few hours ago didn't cut it for you, the company has more enticing phones up its sleeves. Motorola has announced the launch of Moto X Play and Moto X Style aka Moto X Pure.

The Moto X Style is a beautiful smartphone with an equally impressive powerful hardware underneath it. It is also company's flagship smartphone for 2015. It sports a 5.7-inch display of QHD screen resolution. Moto X Style (pictured above) is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz paired with 3GB of RAM. The Moto X Style comes in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB storage variants, all of which support external storage expansion via microSD card.

The Moto X Style supports 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi and other connectivity options. It runs Android Lollipop and features many of Motorola's homegrown apps like Moto Assist, Moto Display, and Moto Voice. The phone will costs $399 (approximately Rs. 27,000). It supports Motorola's Moto Maker custom skinning in select markets. There's no word on when the Moto X Style will launch in India.

The Moto X Pure is the rebranded version of the X Style made especially for the US market. The company says that the Pure doesn't carry any bloatware as it runs the stock Android Lollipop 5.1.

Which brings us to the Moto X Play. The Moto X Play offers slight improvements over the company's last year flagship smartphone. It features a 5.5-inch display of FHD (1080p) screen resolution and packs a 3630mAh battery. Other features of the X Play include a 21-megapixel sensor at the back, and a 5-megapixel snapper placed upfront.
