Moto X Play: Specs, price & availability in the Philippines
Now that the Moto G (2015) is available in the Philippines, will the Moto X Play follow? Along wit the announcement of new Moto G are two versions of the iconic Moto X — the flagship Moto X Style and it's lower-speced sibling the Moto X Play.
So what sets the Moto X Play apart? BATTERY. Thanks to its mid-range spec, it's suppose to last you two days of moderate usage. I don't know what moderate usage means but reviews of the handset suggest that it lives up to the promise. Now for a closer look at the specs...
- AndroidTM Lollipop 5.1.1
- Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 615 Octa-core CPU,Adreno 405 @ 550 MHz GPU
- 5.5” 1080p Full HD, 403 ppi, Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3
- 21 MP (f/2.0) rear camera; 5MP (f/2.2) front camera
- 2 GB RAM + 16GB/32GB internal storage, with micro-SD support

The Moto X Play is positioned as a budget alternative to the Moto X Style. As such, I'm sure that it will come to the Philippines within the year. If it doesn't, then maybe early 2016.
Using the price of the new Moto G as a benchmark, the Moto X Play 8 GB will be sold for PHP 18,000 while the 32 GB for PHP 22, 000
As long as local carriers don't include it in their handset offerings, I don't see the price going down. Price wars between online retailers may lower it by ~PHP 3000. But only if the Moto G price decreases.
