Motorola Moto X Play Specs and Price

  • image

    Motorola Moto X Play is designed to appeal to those interested in a device that delivers amazing streaming, gaming and multitasking capability. It is ideal for those interested in the simultaneously-introduced Motorola Moto X Style but willing to make some concessions for a cheaper price.

    Design and Screen

    Motorola Moto X Play shows off a solid construction with slightly curved edges. At its thinnest point, it measures 8.9 millimetres. The phablet boasts a IP52-certified water-repellent design.

    It parades a 5.5-inch display – slightly smaller than that of the Moto X Style – with Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a pixel density of 403 ppi. The touchscreen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

    Camera and Storage

    Like the higher-end Moto X Style, Motorola Moto X Play is impressively configured in the camera department. It packs a 21-megapixel rear shooter with dual LED flash for enhanced colours. The F2.0-aperture sensor has Quick Capture, drag to focus & exposure, Panorama and Auto HDR features, among others.

    You also get a 5-megapixel, wide-angle selfie camera with flash. The phablet will come in two storage variants of 16 GB and 32 GB.

    Performance and Other Features

    The Moto X Play is fired up by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clocked a 1.7 GHz – this compares well against the 1.8GHz, hexa-core Snapdragon 808 chip used for the Moto X Style. The processor receives support from RAM of 2GB capacity and an Adreno 405 GPU.

    Like its new brother devices, Motorola Moto X Play runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system, which could possibly be upgradeable to the upcoming Android M later in the year.

    It is armed with a fast-charging 3,630mAh battery, which Motorola says can last up to 48 hours on a charge. At that rate, the battery significant betters that of the significantly more-expensive Samsung Galaxy S6.

    It offers users access to super-fast LTE connectivity, just like Moto X Style. The Motorola Moto X Play phablet also features Bluetooth 4.0 LE and dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n.

    Motorola Moto X Play is not yet available in Nigeria. We have no information on pricing and availability for Nigeria. Motorola Moto X Play Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N85,000 to N105,000 at launch.
