Motorola’s new Moto X Style isn’t the only Moto X that’s being added to its lineup in 2015. The company also introduced the Moto X Play, a slightly smaller and more affordable version of the Style, which boasts a 5.5-inch Full HD display, the same “best-in-class” 21-megapixel camera, and all-day battery life.

Motorola is taking its cameras seriously this year, and it promises they’re up their with the best. In fact, when the experts at DxOMark tested the Moto X Style — which features the same sensor as the Play — they rated it as one of the top three smartphone cameras in the world.

On top of this, Moto X Play brings an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, up to 32GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot. It also has a 5-megapixel camera on its front with wide-angle lens for selfies, and 4G LTE that’s compatible with all U.S. carriers.

Like the Moto X Style and new Moto G, the Play comes with Google’s latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software pre-installed, and it’s fully customizable through Moto Maker. You’ll be able to get yours in markets around the world starting next month.
