Motorola Moto X coming to UK and Europe
Motorola's highly rated, flagship Android phone, the Moto X, is set for a UK and European launch on February 1st 2014.The Moto X will be priced at £380 (429 euros), here in the UK, for a SIM-free, unlocked but on-contract prices are set to start at around £25.
The Google owned company has confirmed that retailers Phones 4U, Carphone Warehouse, O2, Amazon and Techdata will stock the Moto X, with Phones 4U having exclusivity over the white model for the first three months of sale. The rest only get a black version to retail.
The phone is available in a wide and custom variety of finishes in the US but no such plans have been revealed for this market.
Despite rave reviews for the handset, sales of the Moto X appear not to have been tearing up any trees for Motorola, which has seen it been made available at discount, soon after its release in August 2013.
"we invented mobile communications" - Motorola
The Moto X has a unique, always-on voice search feature, a 1280 x 720 OLED display, 4G compatibility and a 10 megapixel camera to boast amongst its headlining specs. It will come pre-installed with Android 4.2 (KitKat) and we'd expect it will soon receive the 4.2.2 update, given that it's rolling out in the USA around now.
"At Motorola our roots are deep in mobile hardware -- we invented mobile communications," said Motorola Mobility UK vice president and general manager Andrew Morley.
"Now, as a Google company, we've become the kind of company that can build a 4G smartphone like Moto X. It fuses our history of mobile innovation with the best of Google mobile services."
