After the Moto G3 and the Moto X Style, the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is now rolling out to the mid range handset, Moto X Play in India just as promised last month by Amit Boni – the General Manager of Motorola India.


It’s impressive to see that Motorola is staying firm on their plans as it is currently the only OEM that has released the latest Android 6.0 for all its latest Generation of smartphones. With this pace, updates for the older handsets including the Moto G2 won’t take long. Other manufacturers should really get on with this trait and start pushing regular updates for their handsets too.

The update v24.11.18 for the Moto X Play also includes the Android security update for December along with all the Marshmallow goodies including the doze mode, Now On Tap, specific app permissions and more.

The Moto X Play (our review) already has a top notch battery life compared to other smartphones in its price range, so it will be interesting to see how it performs with the addition of the Doze mode which basically snoozes the apps running in background, thus improving standby times.

A quick specifications overview: The Moto X Play comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Quad Core Snapdragon 615 processor backed up by 2GB of RAM, a fantastic 21 MP rear camera, water repellant nano-coating and a mammoth-sized 3630 mAh battery.

The update is yet to spread across all the Moto G3 handsets yet even though the company pushed it last week. Moto E 4G is now next on the list according to the company that stated it will get the update in countries including Canada, Latin America, Europe and Asia, excluding China.
