During an event being held simultaneously across the world, Motorola unveiled this year’s big flagship, the 2015 Moto X, but this time it’s not just called Moto X, it comes with a new moniker, Moto X Style and touts “one of the best camera in the world”.
Motorola today unveiled the Moto X Style a 5.7-inch device which you’ve no doubt seen before in a series of leaks. Though it looks unremarkable compared to last year’s entry, a new metal plate-like effect is added to the back of the device housing the 21-megapixel camera, flash, and Motorola’s trademark dimple.
The Style moniker has also been added because of how users can customise the device using the Moto Maker with a selection of colours, materials, and more, including leather, wood, and rubber.
It also comes with very small bezels around the Quad HD screen giving a much smaller feel than you’d expect from a device of this size. It’s powered by a 1.8GHz hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB RAM, a 3,000mAh battery, and up to 64GB built in storage as well as microSD support.
As an added bonus, the Moto X Style has a water repellent coating and it’s being marketed as the worlds fastest charging phone that’s apparently 50 per cent faster than a Samsung Galaxy S6.
Probably one of the most impressive features however is that it’ll come with pure Android on board. No bloat, no custom overlay, just Android as it comes on Google’s Nexus devices.
As for pricing, Motorola said during the event that it’s $200-300 cheaper than the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S6. Though It’s highly unlikely that it’ll be priced as competitively as the OnePlus 2 that was announced in the early hours of this morning.
It’s set for release this September, and Motorola also notes that it will sell “pure edition” variants of the Moto X Style in the states, with priority Android updates.
