Last month, Motorola finally unveiled its new Android-powered smartphones that include the latest flagship, the Moto X (2015), which pack flagship-level specs and features.

However, there are also other smartphones in the lineup that made some noise, such as the Motorola Moto X Play.

Now, in a report by GSM Arena, the new Motorola device can now be pre-ordered in Germany and the United Kingdom. In the report, the Moto X Play that has 16GB of built-in memory costs £279 in the UK, while it will be priced at €379 in Germany.

However, consumers who prefer the 32GB edition will need to shell out an additional £40 or €50 depending on where you will buy.

In the report, the device will begin shipping on August 26 in the UK, and August 27 in Germany.

Considered to be a midanger, the Moto X Play offers some pretty impressive specifications. The specs list include a 5.5-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage, and a microSD card slot.

Other specs include a Snapdragon 615 chipset, an octa-core CPU that it clocked at 1.7GHz, and a 3,630mAh battery, which should last a day with most users.

But what separates the Moto X Play from the pack of other midrange 5.5-inchers out there is its 21MP primary camera that is packaged with a dual-tone dual-LED flash. There is also a 5MP front shooter, the usual connectivity options such as 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC.

Finally, the Android-powered device will run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box.

Unfortunately, release dates and details for other countries are not yet available.
