The newest Motorola device on the block, Moto X Style, was launched in the country last week, and is up for grabs starting 12 AM on 14th-15th October. The phone is mostly a style variant of the Moto X Play which was launched in India last month.

Moto X Play comes with changeable back covers available in different colours. This is a feature Moto X Style falls short of as its body is a single, non-detachable unit.Moto X Style vs PlayThe two phones are quite similar on the specs front with X Style not having much to add to X Play. If anything, Style is lower on the battery front with a 3,000 mAh bettery than Play at 3,630 mAh. Style is slightly bigger and heavier than Play and is priced much higher.
