Moto X Play is an Android smartphone developed by Motorola Mobility, a division of Lenovo. Unveiled on July 28, 2015, it is one of three devices that succeeded the second-generation Moto X. In contrast to the high-end Moto X Style phablet, the Play is intended as a mid-range device distinguished by its large battery.

It was released in Canada, Europe, and Latin America in August 2015.[1] In the United States, it is exclusive to Verizon Wireless under the name Droid Maxx 2, as unveiled in October 2015[2] as part of the Droid line of smartphones that are exclusively manufactured by Motorola.[3]



The Moto X Play's chassis features a faux metallic bezel and a textured rear cover, and is splash-resistant. The rear cover can be removed and replaced with differently-colored versions to customize the phone; no other user-replaceable parts are present under the cover, as the device's battery is non-removable, and the SIM and MicroSD card tray are located on the top.

It is powered by a 1.7 GHz[4] octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 system-on-chip with 2 GB of RAM, and features a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD display. Moto X Play is available with either 16 or 32 GB of internal storage, expandable via MicroSD card. The Moto X Play includes a non-replaceable 3630 mAh battery, which Motorola rated as providing 48 hours of mixed usage on a single charge.[5] It also features a 21-megapixel rear-facing camera with Back-LED flash,[6] and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with wide-angle lens.[7][5]


The Moto X Play shipped with Android 5.1.1 "Lollipop", customized with Motorola's suite of apps including Moto Display, Moto Voice, and Moto Assist.[8] In January 2016, Motorola began to release an update to Android 6.0 "Marshmallow".[9] It enables new features such as "Google Now on Tap", which allows users to perform searches within the context of information currently being displayed on-screen, and "Doze", which optimizes battery usage when the device is not being physically handled.[10] In 2017, Motorola released an update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat only for Moto X Play. This new update will be released for Droid Maxx 2 soon.


The Moto X Play has several variants to support 3G and 4G networks of different carriers:
