Motorola Moto X Play launches this Friday in Canada (US LTE on board)
The Motorola Moto X Play will be available next week in Europe, but, before that, it's going to be released in North America. More exactly, starting this Friday, August 21, the X Play will be sold in Canada.

While Motorola Canada didn't say how much the Moto X Play would cost, Canadian customers will likely be able to buy the handset for around $300 (unlocked).

As previously announced, Motorola will not launch the Moto X Play Stateside. However, you could buy one from Canada, and use it in the US, as the Canadian model supports all the right GSM and LTE bands to make it compatible with the networks of AT&T and T-Mobile.

Announced at the end of July alongside the Moto G (2015) and Moto X Style / Pure Edition, the Moto X Play is splash-resistant, and packs a generous 3630 mAh battery (according to Motorola, this should be able to provide 48 hours of "mixed use"). The new handset is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, and sports a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. Other notable features include a 5 MP front-facing camera, a 21 MP rear camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable internal memory. Just like the new Moto G and new Moto X, the X Play can be customized via Moto Maker.
