We’ve already given you the scoop on the Moto X Style or the Moto X Pure Edition, which is the other Moto X device that was announced today. But Motorola’s other device is the Moto X Play which is not destined for the United States. As Motorola put its “true love is not hard to find” and with the Play variant, you are getting a solid device for a price that won’t break the bank. The Moto X Play will $300 to $400 less than other smartphones, like the iPhone 6 or the Galaxy S6. It will be launching next month, August, in several countries including Europe, Latin America, and Canada.

The Moto X Play is packing a punch with a large battery, to be more specific it has a 3,630 man battery that will give you more than 1 day battery life, Motorola is saying it can last for 48 hours. Like on the previous Moto X devices, the Play comes with a very clean Android experience, plus it is running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box. The great Motorola software enhancements are still in store, but no bloatware will be found. You will get either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, but you can expand this via a micro SD card slot. The software and device experience is powered by a Motorola Mobile Computing System including a  1.7GHz Qualcomm®Snapdragon™ 615 Octa-core CPU, Adreno 405 @ 550 MHz GPU, Natural Language Processor, Contextual Computing Processor with 2GB of RAM.

You will find a 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD display with 403 pixels-per-inch. For added protection the 5.5-inch display has a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. You will find a 5 megapixel camera on the front, while there is a 21 megapixel camera on the back with an f/2.0 aperture. The back camera can record 1080pHD video at 30 frames per second.


It’s a little sad that the Moto X Play won’t be coming to the United States, as it has a great value for the price. Although Motorola, did say they would have more device for the United States later this year. The Moto X Play will be landing in August for an unknown price as of now. Motorola under Lenovo is looking like the best Motorola yet, to say the least
