Even though Motorola hasn’t unveiled a successor to its popular Moto X smartphone as yet recently rumors started floating around that a 64GB Moto X might be announced soon. Hints about the smartphone were first found on the company’s own website and then leaked documents from Sprints corroborated it. Motorola has now officially confirmed that it is going to sell a 64GB variant of the Moto X.
Motorola launched the Moto X back in August last year. Its a powerful Android smartphone, one that brings respectable specifications at a competitive price point. However some customers would have hoped for even more internal storage as 32GB might not have been enough for them.
Customers will be able to purchase the 64GB Moto X on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Republic Wireless. So far there’s no indication if its coming to Verizon. Motorola says that this model will be sold for “just $100 more” than the 16GB Moto X.
The company is also kicking off a new “Try Then Buy” program starting today. For a limited time potential customers can customize an unlocked Moto X unit through Moto Maker and then try it out for two weeks. Only a penny charge will be placed on their credit card which will be charged for the full amount if they decide to keep the device after two weeks. If not, the card isn’t charged and Motorola pays for return shipping.
Those who are interested in this new program can head over to Motorola’s website and sign up to receive a special code. The program closes at 11:00PM CT tomorrow or while quantities last.
