Moto X Style, Moto X Play & Moto G 2015 Announced!




Hey guys!  Already back again with another article – and this time we are going to talk about all the new gadgets Motorola announced this morning at their press conference.  They revealed two brand new models of the Moto X – the Style and the Play.  Additionally, they announced an updated version to the Moto G – lets get to the specs!

Moto X Style

5.7-inch QHD display with Gorilla Glass 4

– 1.84 GHz hexa-Core Snapdragon 808 processor

3GB RAM and 16GB/32GB/64GB ROM options w/ microSD slot

3,000mAh battery with ‘TurboPower’ charging (supposedly faster than the S6’s fast charging)

21MP rear-facing and 5MP front-facing camera – both with flash

– Dual front-facing speakers

– NFC

The Moto X Style is definitely an upgraded version of the Moto X 2014 and will even come in a “Pure Edition” in the US.  This edition will give you a fully unlocked model that can be used on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon or T-Mobile and it will come with a nearly pure Android experience/UI.  It will be avaliable through Best, Buy, Amazon, and Motorola’s website starting in September and will start at $399.

 

Moto X Play

5.5-inch 1080p FHD display

– 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor

2GB RAM and 16GB/32GB ROM w/ microSD slot

3,630mAh battery with fast charging

21MP rear-facing and 5MP front-facing camera

– Water resistance and dual front-facing speakers

I am a little confused as one website is saying this device is available worldwide while another is saying it isn’t coming to the US – I’m gonna say it probably won’t be available in the US.  Besides that, this device seems almost better than the Moto X Style with its bigger battery and an almost better processor.  This device will go on sale in August and appears to be priced in the $300-$400 range.

 

Moto G 2015

5-inch 720p display

– 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410

1GB/2GB RAM options

8GB/16GB ROM options with microSD card slot (up to 32GB)

13MP rear-facing and 5MP front-facing camera

2,470mAh battery

– IPX7 water resistance

The Moto G 2015, while an upgrade over the Moto G 2014, is definitely a less powerful device that the Moto X Style or the Play.  This device is on sale right now, I believe worldwide, and will start at $179 for the 1GB RAM/8GB ROM model and $219 for the 2GB RAM/16GB ROM.  Start customizing it here right now!

All three of these devices will be customizable in Moto Maker, but, like I said, only the Moto G 2015 is currently available.  Additionally, Motorola announced two new wireless Bluetooth headphones – the Moto Pulse and the Moto Surround.  Both feature built-in microphones for hands-free calling.  The Moto Pulse is a lightweight on-ear model that surprisingly only costs $59.99.  The Moto Surround on the other hand features the classic around-the-neck in-ear earbuds design.  The earbuds adhere magnetically to the collar piece and according to Cnet, the Moto Surround sounds better than the Pulse.  The Moto Surround will cost just $69.99 and both headphones are available right now here!

  1. 21MP front-facing and 5MP rear-facing cameras? The front-facing cam is the high end one? Is that a typo?
