One retailer in the U.K. is already accepting pre-orders for the Moto X Play, one of a trio of smartphones Motorola introduced last week. This device is the only one of the bunch that won’t make it to the U.S., and it turns out that it doesn’t even support the appropriate bands if you were able to find one abroad.

Live in the U.K.? Then you’re in luck. Clove UK is now accepting pre-orders for the mid-range Moto X Play, and its site says that the first stock is expected to arrive on Aug. 25. We don’t know if that means wider availability, or if other carriers will have it then, too, but it certainly seems plausible.


The Moto X Play wasn’t available for us to check out during Motorola’s press conference last week, since it’s not coming to the U.S., so we don’t have much of an opinion on it quite yet. The 5.5-inch 1080p display and 21-megapixel camera for £225.00 ($348) seems pretty compelling, though.
