The Motorola Moto X Play will become part of the manufacturer’s catalog as the new mid-range model more representative of the third-generation Motorola Moto G and the Motorola Moto X Style. This is indicated by its characteristics and price. The smartphone sports a refreshed design from subtle touches and changes in the front and back.
And it is that the carcass includes rectifications in its edges, now with slightly more curved forms in the corners and lateral of the same. In the front, we appreciate touches such as the grids of the microphone and loudspeaker and a better use of the front since the ratio between the surface of the case and the screen rises to 76%. As regards the measurements of the terminal, the manufacturer has declared dimensions of 148 x 75 x 10.9 millimeters, although the latter parameter is variable since the rear has a curved shape and therefore is narrower at the edges. The weight of the set is 169 grams. The housing is IP52 certified thanks to a hydrophobic layer that repels water.
The technical part of the Motorola Moto X Play has changed regarding its brother range, the Moto X Style. To begin with, the TFT LCD screen that equips measures 5.5 inches and displays a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. As an additional feature, it has a protective glass layer Gorilla Glass 3.
Inside we find typical components of the mid-range segment, such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 to 1.7 GHz eight-core processor that is accompanied by a 550 MHz Adreno 405 GPU. In turn, the motherboard incorporates a chip of 2 GB RAM that perfectly supports the system, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. SoC also provides an Advanced LTE modem with download capacity up to 150Mbps. The wireless connectivity of the Motorola Moto X Play is also made up of Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi N Dual Band and Assisted GPS.
The camera is one of the most important technical points since it shares sensor and features with the incorporated in the Motorola Moto X Style. We speak of a 21-megapixel sensor and lens kit with blue filter and aperture f / 2.0, although with reduced capabilities such as video recording at FullHD resolution instead of 4K. That yes, it maintains the dual LED flash with dual tone and software features such as the HDR auto filter and manual settings such as white balance and ISO. As for the front camera, the manufacturer specifies that it is a sensor with a maximum resolution of five megapixels.
Finally, the autonomy is another of the pillars of the Motorola Moto X Play, since in the terminal there is a battery with a maximum capacity of 3,630 mAh. According to the data provided by the manufacturer, this battery is capable of offering more than one day of mixed use without having to be charged which, in turn, is compatible with Motorola’s fast charging system.
