Motorola unveiled Moto X smartphone on August 1, 2013. At the time, its price was determined as $199, but now new customers can purchase it for $99. Motorola also intends to extend the benefit to other Moto X owners by returning $100 in form of gift cards from Verizon Wireless, carrier credit, Prepaid Motorola Visa card, or in any other method that Motorola may deem fit. However, there is a price to be paid for this discount. Moto X smartphone owners cannot shift to any other make for the next two years after availing this benefit.
Moto X’s 4.7 inch screen comes with 1280 x 720 pixels display, which means it has 316 pixels in every inch. The smartphone uses Android 4.2.2 version operating system. In house additions include Motorola X8 computing system for mobiles. This system is made of multiple chips including Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor S4. This processor has a speed of 1.7GHz. Other chips in the Motorola X8 include two important chips that are Motorola’s innovations. One of these is for processing natural language, and the other one is for computing contextual inputs.
Moto X is sold by most of the carriers in the US, including the US Cellular, and Verizon. However, the gadgets sold by AT&T can be customized with the help of Moto Maker. Such customization is confined to accents and colors. This feature may soon be available to people buying Moto X from Verizon.
