    What makes you think it's the 616 instead of 615? That'd be great news if it turns out to be true! I have wondered why they didn't choose the 616 which has already been used by Huawei in one of their phones, so it's clearly ready for mass production.

    425 would have been even better but that's not yet ready, which is a shame.

    The Huawei was announced after Qualcomm announced the 616. Anyway, the SoC on the Moto X play seems more similar to the 616 mostly because of two factors: the clock (no other phone has a 615 clocked at 1.7GHz, which is the default clock of the 616), and the global LTE modem.

    what are the most noticeable differences between them?

    As far as I know, ever so slightly more raw performance (due to the higher clock of the CPU, and faster RAM), and the thermal and battery drain issues should be solved.

    My understanding is that the phone would be released to all eligible markets mid-August, including Brazil. I would keep an eye on the Motorola Brazil Facebook page and Moto website...

    Looks and sounds promising:



    Happy to hear that CPU performance is largely the same between the 615 and 801 in Motorola's version of Android. Seeing as I'll be coming from a 800 instead of 801, looks like I have nothing to worry about in terms of performance.
