Moto X Launching at Sprint this Summer, Priced $199

Moto X

The Moto X smartphone was just launched yesterday, and all the US carriers are trying to allure the customers in choosing their version of the device. One of the American mobile networks that will sell the handset says that it will be available this summer, with no specific date provided, and that all the customers who purchase the Moto X will get a Lifetime Unlimited Guarantee.

That specific carrier is Sprint, which mentioned that the Moto X will be sold for $199.99 with a new two-year plan, which means that the mobile operator will only be selling the 16GB version of the phone. According to the manufacturer, other carriers will also sell a 32GB model which will be priced at $299 with new plans.

AT&T’s version of the Moto X will be highly customizable, but sadly for the Sprint subscribers their carrier will only sell the smartphone in black and white. Another carrier that will sell the device with MotoMaker customizations is Verizon, but this won’t happen until later this year.

As mentioned, Sprint will offer the Moto X with Lifetime Unlimited Guarantee. In other words, the customers will be provided with access to unlimited voice calls, text and data for life. However, in case you want that you will have to choose from one of the Unlimited plans, which are not the cheapest: My Way ($80 per month) or My All-In Plan ($110 per month).

According to the technical specifications the Moto X is a mid-range smartphone featuring 4.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 and a pixel density of 312ppi and being covered by a Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The phone is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon¬†S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.7 GHz and an Adreno 320 GPU. In terms of internal memory, the Moto X comes in two versions namely the 16GB and the 32GB. You have to choose very wisely because unfortunately the existing memory can’t be expanded as the device doesn’t feature a microSD card slot.

The Moto X also sports a 10MP primary camera capable of recording 1080p video, and a 2MP secondary one. Further, the handset will come running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right of the box.

For the customers eager to buy the Moto X from Sprint, the network has set up a dedicated sign-up page. In case you are interested you can register HERE.
