Prices start at around 380 Euros and 430 Euros for the 16 GB and 32 GB models, respectively.

The Moto X Play includes a water-repellent nano-coating surface to resist rain, spills, and moisture. It may not be full IP68 compliant a la the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, but it should help users who are more likely to spill coffee or use the phone out in the rain.

The Moto Maker store allows color customization of the Moto X Play front and back covers and interchangeable Flip covers. 16 GB and 32 GB storage sizes are available starting for 380 Euros and 430 Euros, respectively. A name or message can also be laser-etched on the rear panel.

Specifications for the Moto X Play include:

  • Display: 5.5-inch FHD
  • CPU: Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC
  • GPU: Adreno 405
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • Software: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
  • Storage: 16/32 GB
  • Cameras: 21 MP rear, 5 MP front
  • Battery: 3630 mAh

Motorola announced the Moto X Play late last month alongside the more premium Moto X Style. The Style sports a larger 5.7-inch QHD display and more powerful internals, but will likely have shorter battery runtimes compared to the Moto X Play as its battery is only 3000 mAh.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
