Moto X Play Does the Same Job With Less Components

The latest Moto X, the Moto X Play, still has the always-on voice feature that made the original Moto X unique, but Motorola and Cirrus Logic have made a substantial improvement in the number of components used to implement the feature.

The old system consisted of a TI DSP, Cirrus Logic ADC, analog switch, and audio codec (QCOM platform codec). The new system system in the Moto X play is fully integrated in the Cirrus Logic WM6267 (package marked with Motorola Logo and XMSC1000).
