Motorola took to the stage today to show off its new wares, including new Moto X and Moto G hardware.
First off, the new Moto X Style features a 5.7-inch 2560x1440 display with a 76 percent screen-to-body ratio. The front of the phone is also home to front-facing speakers, and around back lives a 21-megapixel camera that Motorola says is its best camera ever with faster focus and capture.
Speaking of the back of the Moto X Style, it’ll be available for personalization with Moto Maker. You’ll be able to customize the Moto X Style with colorful rubber silicone backs as well as wood and Horween leather options.
Rounding out the Moto X Style’s spec list is a 5-megapixel wide angle front camera with flash, 16/32/64GB of storage, a microSD slot, 3GB of RAM, a 3000mAh battery, and a 1.8GHz hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor. The whole package is covered in a water-repellant coating.
Next up is the Moto X Play. This device is the “smaller” of the new Moto X duo, but with a 5.5-inch 1920x1080 display, it’s not exactly small. The good news is that the Moto X Play’s battery is equally not small, coming in at a whopping 3630mAh. And the phone supports Motorola’s Turbo Power charging so you can top it off in a hurry.
Inside of the Moto X Play is a 1.7GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB of storage, a microSD slot, and 4G LTE connectivity. The device also packs 21-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras and is powered by Android 5.1.1. And just like the Moto X Style, you’ll be able to customize the Moto X Play with Moto Maker.
Finally, we’ve got the new Moto G, which Motorola India actually announced a couple of hours ahead of today’s event. As a refresher, the new Moto G’s got a 5-inch 1280x720 display, 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 1/2GB of RAM, 8/16GB of storage, a microSD slot, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, 4G LTE, and a 2470mAh battery.
Perhaps the two most notable additions to the third generation Moto G are its water resistance and its support for Moto Maker, the latter of which will let you customize the front, back, and accents of the G for the first time.
And now for the all-important availability info. The Moto X Style will launch in September at a price of $399, and Motorola plans to offer a Pure Edition that’ll be unlocked and offer universal LTE support. Meanwhile, the Moto X Style will launch in 55 countries starting in August at a price of £299 ($467) in the UK (the Moto X Play may not come to the US at all). The Moto G will be available in 60 countries starting today for $179.99 for the 1GB/8GB version.
