Short Bytes : Motorola has launched a trio of smartphones to dominate both the low and high ends of mobile market. Moto X Style is being called the world’s fastest charging phone, Moto X Play costs lesser and has 48-hour battery life, and Moto G Third Generation is a waterproof phone with an impressive 13MP camera and the lowest price. 

Motorola is witnessing a constant growth in the smartphone market-share. The company is basking in the success of Moto X, Moto G, and super-budget Moto E phones. The Lenovo-owned company has managed to secure a reputable position at the top along with Apple and Samsung. The company tells that Moto G is the best-selling smartphone in company’s history, which is a huge statement given the popularity of the vintage Razr.

Now, to dominate both the high and low ends of the mobile market, Motorola has released a new trio of smartphones- Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and Moto G (Third Edition). Moto X Style will be known as the Moto X Pure Edition and will work with any carrier. Moto Play comes with a longer 48-hour battery life and a smaller screen. And, the company released a new third generation of Moto G with an impressive 13MP camera.

With these phones, Motorola is moving ahead with the “pure” Android ideology that rejects the bloatware and ships unforked version of Android with its smartphones. These phones run on Android Lollipop and will receive Android M upgrade later this year.
