If for some reason you were planning to get the Moto X from Verizon you might be glad to hear that the Big Red now has the smartphone available for purchase in its online store. as it was announcing in a couple of days old tweet, Verizon kept its word and made the new Motorola flagship available for purchase on August 29 which happens to be today.
In case you are not the online shopping type, you should know that the the Motorola Moto X will not land in Verizon physical stores sooner than a few weeks from now.
For the time being, the only color options available for the Verizon Moto X are black and white and it’s also worth mentioning that the US carrier will not get Moto Maker support for now, as, for the time being, AT&T has an exclusivity on this option. Fortunately, the Verizon Moto X only has a logo placed on its back. Also, the 32 GB model is nowhere to be found, as the 16 GB Moto X is the only one available both at AT&T and Verizon.
Just like it was anticipated, the Motorola Moto X will have a price tag of $199.99 with a two-year agreement with Verizon, but we are happy to announce you that you can save %30 and get the handset for $139.99. All you have to do is enter VERIZON30 as promo code when you are ordering the smartphone.
If signing agreements with carriers it’s not your thing, hear that Moto X has an unsubsidized price of $600 at Verizon, which is $20 higher than it’s on AT&T or Motorola.
The Moto X was officially introduced earlier this month and it’s the first smartphone co-developed by Google and Motorola after the search engine giant acquired the Chicago-based phone maker mid 2012. The terminal sports a 4.7-inch AMOELD display with HD resolution and a special Gorilla Glass layer called Magic Glass. The special thing about the Magic Glass is that the protective layer is wrapped around the edges of the phone for improved protection and grip.
The Motorola handset is underpinned by what Motorola likes to call X8 mobile computing system, which is basically a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset customized for the Moto X and the latest Droids. The X8 MCS consists of a quad-core Andreno 320 GPU, dual-core 1.7 GHz Krait CPU, and two low-energy cores that handle natural language and contextual computing processing affairs.
The terminal also comes with 2 GB of RAM and 16/32 GB of internal storage, while sporting all the connectivity functions worthy of a modern smartphone: 4G LTE, NFC support, microUSB 2.0, WiFi a/b/g/n/ac, and Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy.
The Moto X is equipped with a 10 megapixel camera with ClearPixel technology which is supposed to bring improved performance in low light conditions, courtesy of the 1.4 µm pixel size. The terminal also comes with 1080p@30fps video recording support, while the user-facing camera brings a 2 megapixel sensor.
The new smartphone is running almost stock Android 4.2.2 which combines an unaltered Android interface with a couple of cool Motorola features like always-on voice controls, Active Notifications, Motorola Assist, and a gesture-based camera app.
