Motorola Moto X Play orders accepted today in the U.K. and Germany; phone ships starting August 26th

Motorola Moto X Play orders accepted today in the U.K. and Germany; phone ships starting August 26th
Orders on the Moto Maker site are being taken in the U.K. and Germany for the Motorola Moto X Play, starting today. The phone will ship in the U.K. starting on August 26th, and in Germany on August 27th. As you might know by now, this model is not available in the U.S. In the states, the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition will be available to order starting on September 3rd. But we digress. Today is all about the Moto X Play which is priced starting at the equivalent of $437 USD.

The Motorola Moto X Play is equipped with a 5.5-inch display. The screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 (FHD) means that the pixel density comes in at 401ppi. A Snapdragon 615 SoC is under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of internal memory. Those requiring additional storage can turn to the 128GB capacity microSD slot.

The rear camera on the Moto X Play is 21MP with an aperture of f/2.0. This allows the camera to snap quality pictures even under low lighting conditions. The 5MP snapper in front will take selfies and handle video chats. A 3630mAh battery keeps the Moto X Play running for a long time. Motorola says that you will get 48 hours of "mixed use" from the cell, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed. The Moto X Play is protected from splashes and light rain thanks to the nanocoating protection from P2i.

The Moto X Play will continue its march across Europe and will also be offered in Latin America and Canada later this month. Motorola hinted at the product introduction event that U.S. customers will be offered more handsets later this year.
