Moto X Style Release Date, News, Price and Specs

Moto X Style

Over the last couple of years, Motorola’s flagship phones might have packed in some unique features and ran a version of Android that was very close to stock, but they always failed to deliver in key aspects like battery life, display, and camera performance.

With its 2015 flagship, the Moto X Style, the Lenovo-owned company is finally fixing the traditional weakness of its flagship devices for good. The X Style follows a design language that is similar to its predecessor though it does feature a substantially bigger 5.7-inch Quad HD LCD screen on the front. The bigger screen is accompanied by front-facing stereo speakers, which are always a welcome addition on any device.

Motorola is also promising better camera performance from the Moto X Style’s 21MP Sony IMX230 sensor, as it states that it has completely revamped its image processing algorithm for clearer images with less noise.

Despite packing in relatively high-end internals, including a Snapdragon 808 chipset, 3GB RAM, a 3,000mAh battery, the base variant of the Moto X Style (Pure) will cost only $399 in the United States. The single ‘Pure’ SKU of the handset sold in the United States will also support all the carriers in the country, including Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T.

Motorola Moto X Style review: Stunning, Super-specced and, yes, Stylish

Reviewing the Moto X Style after the launch of the two new Nexuses from Google proved somewhat surreal, since the Motorola devices of the last couple of years have also been Nexus in all but name, with the same Android, occasionally updated faster than some Nexus hardware, and with just a few Motorola utilities over the top. Putting comparisons with the Nexus 6P and Nexus 6, in particular, definitely in the frame. And, I venture to suggest, the X Style might even come out on top, despite being cheaper in most markets.
