Alongside its 2015 Moto G, Motorola today unveiled the new Moto X Style, one of two Moto X devices launching in 2015. The device comes with a larger and sharper Quad HD display, excellent battery life, and a “best-in-class” 21-megapixel camera.

Motorola was incredibly keen to hammer home exactly how spectacular the Moto X Style’s rear-facing camera really is. The company has already loaned the handset to the camera experts at DxOMark, and according to their test results, it’s in the top three smartphone cameras in the world, beating out the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

You’ll be able to enjoy the images you capture with that sensor on the Moto X Style’s 5.7-inch Quad HD display. Other specifications include Qualcomm’s hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a 3,000mAh battery that Motorola says will last all day.

And when it doesn’t, you’ll be able to take advantage of the Style’s fast-charging technology, which is around 50% faster than the Galaxy S6’s.

The Style has a water-repellent coating, though isn’t actually water-resistant like the new Moto G, and it boasts a microSD card slot. It will launch with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop pre-installed, and you’ll be able to get yours this September.
