Motorola Moto X Style Announced as Flagship Android Smartphone
Motorola has revealed this year’s flagship Android smartphone from its Moto range – the superior sized Moto X Style.
Shadowing its 2014 predecessor, the Motorola Moto X Style (to be known as the Pure Edition in the United States) is a third gen model running Google’s latest mobile Android, v5.1.1 Lollipop and that sports a 5.7-inch Quad HD display featuring 1440 x 2560 pixels with a 520ppi pixel density (Moto X 2nd gen featured 5.2-inch 423ppi). The sizeable screen is also made with a toughened Gorilla Glass for protection from bumps and scratches.
A 21-megapixel main camera with dual-LED flash offers image quality up to 5248 x 3936 pixel resolution and 4K video capture up to 2160p at 30fps (or 1080p HD at 60fps). Selfies will look sharp and well-lit from a 5-megapixel front-facing camera which also includes its own single LED flash.
Battery life is offered by a non-removable 3000maAh cell which Motorola boasts is fifty percent faster to replenish than rival Samsung’s Galaxy S6. Connectivity on offer includes 4G/LTE data speeds (if provided by the carrier), WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC.
Expected in the UK and Europe at some point this September the Motorola Moto X looks set to cost £359 and will come in a selection of finishes.
