For The First Ever Motorola Incorporates A MicroSD Card Slot On Its Moto X Style

For the first time in history, Motorola has done the entire smartphone populace a huge favor and incorporated a MicroSD card slot on its Moto X Style. Trust us when we say this; we did believe that Motorola was going to release yet another smartphone that would be void of an expandable storage feature, and we are happy to see that the company has finally started to take things seriously.

According to details, Moto X Style is going to feature a 5.7 inch screen size and will be assimilated with a Snapdragon 808 SoC. While we did know which chipset was going to be present, the fact that it does not feature a Snapdragon 810 will please future consumers because they will not have to suffer like the remaining users who have been plagued by overheating and thermal throttling issues of Qualcomm’s flagship SoC.

As for the battery pack, Motorola has taken a huge stride and placed in a 3,000 mAh battery, which according to the company, will be able to give out 30 hours battery life upon mixed usage. Moto X Style also includes a TurboPower 25 charger, for faster battery charging.
