Motorola has slashed Moto X prices by $100 in its latest move to reach maximum customers on New Year.
If you are one of them who missed the holidays shopping deals, then you have another chance to get a discount, but this time, it’s permanent. Motorola has dropped the prices of off-contract Moto X. Now you can save $100 and build a fully-customized Moto X.
The 16GB model now costs $399, while the 32GB version for any carrier runs $150 more (priced at $449).
“So from today forward we’re offering Moto X at an everyday starting price of just $399 on any major US carrier, without a contract. This includes customized devices,” reads the official blog post.
The new pricing is not only timed for the New Year, but also could mean to benefit those who missed Cyber Monday deal after the website failure during the time or to drive new customers.
The new prices only applies to phones customized/made through Moto Maker for now, and all the US carrier partners could drop their Moto X prices soon. As of now, Verizon Wireless and Sprint are offering the phone — paired with a two-year contract — for $0.01, while AT&T charges $49.99.
For a quite note, the Moto X comes with over 2000 custom designs and features like new Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System based on Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Krait CPU Pro with a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor and Adreno 320 GPU.
It also has a 4.7-inch HD AMOLED display resolving 1280 × 720 pixels at 316 ppi, 10MP rear camera and 2MP front camera, 2200 mAh battery with up to 24 hours battery life, and two years of free 50GB storage on Google Drive. It’s also the first smartphone to upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat.
