Sprint Moto X available on Sept. 6 for $199.99
The Moto X has already launched on AT&T and Verizon. It's now Sprint's turn and the carrier will begin selling the smartphone on Sept. 6 for $199.99.
The Moto X is the first smartphone to come out from Motorola since Google acquired it. The two companies worked very closely in developing the smartphone's unique design, customizations, and its innovative features. It is also the first smartphone to use Motorola's X8 Computing System chip that allows the device to be fast, use always-on sensors to listen for commands, and provide excellent battery life.
The smartphone has already made its way to customers' hands on AT&T and Verizon. T-Mobile plans on selling its version of the handset through Motorola's site and on the Google Play Store in the near future, and now Sprint has announced it will offer the highly-anticipated smartphone on Sept. 6 for $199.99 when signing a new 2-year contract.
"Moto X is the first smartphone that can respond to your specific needs with features like Touchless Control, Active Display and Quick Capture," said David Owens, Vice President - Product Development, Sprint. "We expect customers to quickly become hooked on Touchless Control because of its ease and convenience for everyday tasks like locating the nearest gas station, ordering a pizza or searching the Web for sports updates. Sprint ensures that our customers can use Moto X to its fullest potential without having to worry about overage fees on their wireless bill."
The Sprint Moto X features a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED HD display and is powered by a custom dual-core 1.7Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with Motorola's X8 Computing System and an Adreno 320 graphics processing unit (GPU). The smartphone ships with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and is expected to receive an update to Android 4.3 in the near future. The handset includes 16GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM.
It is packing a 10-megapixel rear camera with the ability to record 1080p video and also has a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat. When it comes to connectivity, the Moto X includes a 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. Motorola has included a 2,200 mAh battery that offers excellent battery life and the smartphone will be available in a choice of woven black or woven white.
Sprint customers can purchase the Moto X starting on Sept. 6 through its retail stores or online.
