Last year Motorola launched the first generation Moto X smartphone and it was believed to be one of the best Android devices to hit the market in 2013. This year the company followed up with the second-generation Moto X, making the device better than its predecessor, however one thing remained constant. Both devices don’t have support for microSD cards so you’re limited to onboard and cloud storage. Up until now only 16GB and 32GB variants have been available but that changes today.
Motorola just announced the 64GB Moto X Pure Edition. There’s nothing different in this particular variant except for the fact that it has 64GB of onboard storage. Everything else is exactly the same, you only pay extra for the storage.
The 64GB Moto X Pure Edition is available through Moto Maker. This variant is not available through any U.S. or international carrier so there are no carrier subsidies to be had, but Motorola does option financing options for customers during the ordering process.
This smartphone costs $599.99 before tax, that’s a full $100 over the $499.99 price tag of the 32GB variant. Opting for a wood or leather back increases the cost by $24.99. Moto X Pure Edition can run on GSM and LTE networks, in the U.S. this means that its good to go on AT&T and T-Mobile.
