Motorola DVX, the low-cost Moto X, passes through the FCC
Motorola is making good on its promise to release a low-cost Moto X. The Motorola DVX has just passed through the FCC for certification approval.
When Motorola CEO, Dennis Woodside confirmed the Moto X's existence at AllThingsD in May, he said the smartphone would be the first of many the company would be releasing this year. At its August 1 Moto X event the CEO confirmed that the company would release a low-cost Moto X variant in order to offer the Moto X experience at an even more affordable price. He would not say when we could expect to see the device, only noting that it was just months away and will land before the end of the year. It was pretty surprising he announced the low-cost device after just officially launching the Moto X. He claimed the smartphone would be headed to emerging markets and U.S. prepaid carriers.
It appears that in less than a month from making the comment, the device is closer to being released than originally thought. Three new Motorola devices passed through the FCC on August 29th with the model numbers XT 1032, XT1033, and XT 1035.
A new report from PhoneArena claims that a few UK retailers already have pages reserved for these smartphones, and the handset is listed as the Motorola DVX. The 8GB model will reportedly cost £137.29 including VAT (or $214) and the 16GB model is listed for £150.74 including VAT *or $234). The smartphones are listed as being sold carrier unlocked and some of the listings say that the smartphones will be restocked on September 11th. That release date seems highly unlikely as Motorola has not scheduled a press event to officially announce the handsets.
The Motorola DVX is expected to be somewhat customizable, like the Moto X. Motorola will reportedly release different-colored back plates to allow users to swap out and change the look of the device, so while it's not as customizable as the Moto X, it will offer a similar feature.
We'll keep you updated as more details about the Motorola DVX (low-cost Moto X) become available.
