Motorola Moto X unlocked version to be called Pure Edition
By Adeel Inam
Motorola recently launched the successor to their Moto X smartphone known as the Moto X 2014 edition though it was only available on carriers till now but according to a new report the 2014 edition of Moto X will also be available separately later on as an unlocked model known as Moto X Pure Edition.
What’s good about the Pure Edition of Moto X is that it will come with Stock Android and would be free from all the carrier based apps though there will be some Motorola apps on the smartphone. The Android version that Motorola uses is completely stock with some Motorola tweaks just like Cyanogenmod. Even the Moto X 2013 edition comes with all the same stuff but Motorola didn’t chose a specific name for the unlocked version of that smartphone.
Motorola Moto X 2014 edition comes with a 5.2 inch display that supports a resolution of 1920 x 1080 with a pixel density of 424ppi, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB of internal storage, 13MP camera on the back while a 2MP camera at the front and to power it all a 2300mAh battery. The smartphone will also be running Android Kitkat 4.4.4 out of the box.
A lot of companies are shifting from plastic to metal just like Samsung did with their Note line of smartphones this year as well as Alpha line and same goes for Motorola as well as the frame of the Motorola Moto X 2014 edition is made out of metal though battery life might be an issue with a screen size that big.
The carrier based version of the Motorola Moto X 2014 edition retails for $450 so we are expecting the unlocked version to be around $500.
