Moto X Style phablet is 'world's fastest charging phone', apparently

Motorola has just announced a new flagship smartphone – the Moto X Style phablet.

It's a successor to last year's flagship Moto X handset, and was unveiled today at Motorola's London launch event.

Moto X Style features

For starters, you're looking at a 5.7-inch QHD display – that's much more than the 5.2-inch Moto X from last year.

The phone uses a huge 21-megapixel image sensor that Motorola claims uses the latest most advanced camera technologies available.

The rear-facing camera is capable of shooting 4K video and is, apparently, "the best we've ever built".

It's also got a 5-megapixel camera on the front that makes use of a wide-angle lens.

It's also got super-fast charging that Motorola claims is 50 per cent faster than the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Motorola describes the Style as "the world's fastest charging phone".

That's juicing up a 3,000mAh battery that's purportedly good for 30-hours of mixed use – wait for our full review on that front.

And, of course, the device is running on Google's latest Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system.

But you probably want to know about the upcoming Android M, right? Well Motorola says the Style will get "priority when it comes to software upgrades". Painfully ambiguous.

Don't forget that the Moto X Style offers universal LTE banding, which means it will work on any carrier's 4G network.

The device boasts a signature curved back and an array of design choices through the Moto Maker – including leather, wood, and rubber, with metallic accents and engraving available too.

The phone comes in three storage options – 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. That's expandable by a further 128GB thanks to a microSD slot.

This phone will be available starting in September according to Motorola, with UK pricing kicking off at £359.

I like large phones but is there no smaller variation of the Moto X?

There is, the 5.5" Moto X Play, but this only has a Snapdragon 615 which is a real shame.

It has a Snapdragon 808 according to this site. I just read about it.

TR's got it wrong - the Moto X Style has the 808, the Moto X Play has a 615, Engadget, Slashgear et al do all have the 615.

I see.
I don't understand why Motorola didn't release a 5/.2 inch flagship device. I personally prefer larger screened phones but not everyone does.

I'm in the latter camp - if the Play had a 5.2" screen still and the same CPU then I'd be all over it. Just like Sony did with the Z3 and Z3 Compact!
