Motorola threw a little bit of a curveball when refreshing its Moto X line, giving us two devices instead of one. The higher-end of the two is the Moto X Style, packing lots of high-end specs and a larger size than last year, with some subtle design changes as well. It still offers Moto Maker customization, as you'd expect, and in the U.S. it'll be available as a Pure Edition with no carrier involvement — here are its specs.
