2014 Moto X available in the UK, Moto Maker too
On September 5, 2014, Motorola has introduced the next generation Moto X. While happening on the first day of the Berlin International Radio Show, the Motorola event wasn’t part of the 2014 IFA; instead, Motorola decided to hold a special event in Chicago, and try to steal a little bit from the Berlin consumer electronics show spotlight.
The 2014 Moto X, also known as The new Moto X (but Motorola only refers to the smartphone as the Moto X), was initially available only in the United States, through two of the nation’s largest carriers: AT&T and Verizon. A wider roll-out has been promised, and now, those who live in the UK, and want to have their own Moto X, can order the smartphone.
The Moto X is available straight from Motorola, GSM unlocked, meaning that you’ll have to either purchase a carrier SIM card, or use an existing one. Two storage options are available: the 16GB variant goes forÂ Â£419.99, while the larger capacity, 32GB version, will set you back Â£459.99.
For the money you get a phone featuring aÂ 5.2-inch AMOLED display with Full HD resolution (1920×1080), protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, and powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocking atÂ 2.5GHz, helped by the Adreno 330 graphic processor. Also included are 2GB of RAM, the two aforementioned storage options, a 13 megapixel main camera on the back, 2 megapixel front-facing shooter, plus all the usual suspects, including WiFi and NFC.
However, if you want to customize your future Moto X, make it your own, you can do so using Motorola’s own Moto Maker. There are two front colors available: black and white, though selecting the latter options will delay your phone’s shipping. Back colors include shades in five major categories, while you can also choose from ten accent colors. Engraving is also a possibility, should you want to further personalize your device with a message.
That being said, let us know whether you are going to purchase the 2014 Moto X. If you don’t like in the UK, however, you’ll have to wait a little longer in order to grab the phone, but a wider roll out shouldn’t be far out.
