Motorola Moto X Play Features

Unlike in the previous years, where Motorola had just one device under the Moto X moniker, this year Motorola has decided to give their customers an added set of options. The Motorola Moto X third generation is available in a fair few versions, you have the budget device that is the Moto X Play, you have the flagship device in Motorola Moto X Style and then you have the Motorola Moto X Force for those who like to use their smartphones slightly roughly. The Motorola Moto X Play is the entry level Moto X, primarily aimed at the budget conscious audience. The phone in terms of looks, is identical to the Motorola Moto X Style, though Motorola has definitely cut corners when it comes to the materials being used. The Moto X Style is more premium while the Play is largely built out of plastic or polycarbonate as they call it. Some of the features of the Motorola Moto X Play include:

  • The smartphone comes with a 5.5 inch LCD display with 1080 P resolution. This gives the phone a PPI of 401, which is pretty much a standard for phones in the market that are close to the Rs 20,000 mark like the Moto X Play is.
  • Motor X Play is available in two different memory variants. You have the 16 GB version and the 32 GB version, and both of them come with a slot for expansion via Micro SD slot.
  • In the engine room, driving the device is Snapdragon 615 Octa-Core chip with CPU cores clocked at 1.7 GHz. The RAM on board is 2 GB.
  • On the connectivity front, Moto X Play supports Dual SIM cards, with both of them capable of latching on to LTE in India. You have the usual set like Wifi, Bluetooth, NFC and FM Radio too.
  • The rear camera is 21 MP and comes with LED flashlight for support in low light photography. The front-facing camera is a 5 MP snapper, though, unlike the Moto X Style, there is no front facing flash here.
  • The phone is slightly heavy at 169 grams despite a plastic build and some credit for that goes to a gigantic 3630 mAh non-removable, Lithium Ion Polymer battery.
  • Motorola Moto X is a water resistant phone and comes with Android 5.1 out of the box.
