Moto X Style, the international version of the Moto X Pure Edition that is available in the U.S., finally got the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. The rollout comes over-the-air (OTA) and is already available to some users in Europe.
Users have been expecting the update since Motorola already started rolling out the official Marshmallow to the Moto X Pure Edition. Other locations may soon follow, as the rollout seemed to come as staggered according to territory.
Just like the Moto X Pure Edition, the Moto X Style Android 6.0 update should also take a download size of about 650 MB. No major additions other than the ones included in stock Android are expected from the update.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which was announced back in May at Google I/O, began rolling out to Nexus devices five months later. With the Moto X Style now getting the update, as reported by Android Police, users can start enjoying a number of features that the new Android OS offers.
One of the biggest features brought by the update is called Doze. As the name implies, Doze puts one’s handset into a very deep sleep when it is not being used. While on a deep sleep, the handset will be unable to receive notifications and there will also be no Moto Display. Standby time is also enhanced with the new Doze brought by the latest Android Marshmallow.
The Moto X Style has a 5.7-inch 1440p Quad HD display and boasts front-facing stereo speakers. It features 3 GB RAM and 16 or 32 GB storage which can be expanded up to 128 GB through a micro SD card. Its 21 MP rear camera offers a slew of exciting features that include Phase Detect Auto-Focus, Tap anywhere to capture, Color Correlated Temperature flash with dual LEDs, Closed loop processing, Quick Capture, 4x digital zoom, Night mode, Burst mode, Panorama, Auto HDR, Drag to focus & exposure, 1080p HD video, Video HDR, Video Stabilization, 4K video and Slow Motion video.
Selfie fans can also use the Moto X Style’s 5 MP front camera which has 1.4um pixel for enhanced low light image capture. It also has Flash, Night Mode and Slow Motion video.
Other features include 3,000 mAh all-day battery, water repellent nano-coating, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and GPS.
In order to check whether one’s handset has received the update, users can access their device’s Settings then choose About Phone and System Update. If it’s not available yet, users may just have to wait for a few more hours or days for the rollout.[“source-techtimes”]
