Motorola is upping the ante in the smartphone arena these days. After having launched the Moto G (3rd Gen) and Moto X Play to strengthen its mid-range, it has now announced the Moto X Style which will be slotted towards the higher end of spectrum. The Moto X Style comes forth as somewhat of a successor of the Moto X (2nd Gen) unless Motorola launches a flagship device later this year.
The Moto X Style comes with a 5.7-inch QHD display and runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. There's a Snapdragon 808 chipset under the hood and Motorola probably decided to ditch the Snapdragon 810 for its heating issues. The specs are pretty much top notch. It has a 21-megapixel rear camera with a dual-tone LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera.
It also gets TurboPower 25 charger that promises a for running the device for 10 hours within 15 minutes. Here’s a look at its specifications:
