Motorola Mobility, the telecom giant from Schaumburg, Illinois is rumored to name its yet to be launched, unbranded and unlocked version of this year’s Moto X, the Pure Edition. “Pure” usually means a UI that is not heavily tweaked by the manufacturer. This new unlocked version of Moto X would be free from any preloaded carrier apps and services, better known as the bloat-ware.
Motorola announced on its blog that preorders for the AT&T version of the new Moto X 2014 will start on Tuesday at 12 p.m. ET. The Moto X Pure edition will go on pre-orders soon as well.
The new Moto X, Pure Edition features vivid 5.2 inch HD OLED Display having 1080p resolution at 423 ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer. It features the new 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with quad-core CPU and 2GB RAM along with 16 GB ROM which is upgradable up to 32GB through MotoMaker. Weighing at around 144 grams, the Pure Edition has a Front facing speaker and 4 mics with next generation CrystalTalk technology.
It has a 13MP primary camera with QuickCapture, 4X digital zoom, Burst mode, Auto HDR, Panorama mode and LED flash, capable of capturing videos at 4K UHD resolution and in Slow motion video mode. The front camera is of 2MP resolution which can capture 1080p videos, allowing you to make full HD video calls.
It comes with the latest and greatest OS version till date; the Android 4.4.4 KitKat and upgrades to newer OS would be easier than ever. It features the amazing voice-activated wake-up prompts that let you create your wake-up commands, such as “Wake up, phone!”
We can assume that Moto X Pure Edition wouldn’t be totally stock android as the company says. It might still come preloaded with some of Motorola’s custom touches and apps.
Motorola is already ruling in the some of the Asian countries, including China and India, it is supposed to do well in the other countries too. However, the company is getting more competition as Apple also recently launched a next generation of its flagship phone.
