After launching the Motorola Moto G 3rd-gen in India, Motorola has unveiled the new Moto X Style smartphone, as well. The new handset features a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, front-facing speakers and a premium design customizable by using the popular Moto Maker. The third-generation Moto X Style is Motorola’s news flagship device.
Motorola makes a bold claim, saying this device is going to be the fastest charging phone showing onstage a demo of it charging against the Galaxy S6. The Moto X Style reached 35% power in 15 minutes, which is up to a 50% greater charge than the Galaxy S6. Motorola calls this the “TurboPower” quick charging technology. However, we need to wait for the first reviews for this feature to be confirmed.
The newest Moto X Style has a 21MP rear camera which comes with a dual LED flash placement below the lens. It brings better light capture, faster focus, faster capture and improved color. There’s also a 5-megapixel front-facing camera on the front. Motorola seems very confident in the imaging power of the device with Marketing VP Adrienne Hayes saying that “we can guarantee the cameras in our phones will now be best in class.”
The phone is powered by a 1.8GHz hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and comes with a 3,000maAh battery ( 30 hours of “mixed use”), and is available in the following storage options – 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, with support for Micro SD cards up to 128GB. The device will run on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 and comes unlocked, so you can basically use it with any carrier of your choice.
The Moto X Style will be launched as a pure edition in the U.S. with universal bands at Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. However, the pricing hasn’t yet been revealed, with Motorola saying that its pricing will be more affordable than other flagships (will cost “$200 to $300″ less than the leading smartphone on the market). The Moto X Style will be available starting with this September.
