As if the second generation Moto X wasn’t already attractive enough, Motorola is breaking a new range topping variant of the flagship smartphone. The Moto X was previously only available in 16GB and 32GB versions, but today Motorola has bumped the maximum capacity to 64GB for the Moto X Pure Edition. The Moto X doesn’t have an integrated microSD slot, so the bump from a maximum of 32GB to 64GB is a welcome addition.
Since this is a Pure Edition device, that means that you won’t find any carrier bloatware or unwanted apps on this device — just a near stock version of Android 4.4.4 KitKat (which can be quickly upgraded to Android 5.0.x Lollipop). And given Motorola’s historically close relationship with Google, you can expect to see continued speedy updates to future Android releases.
Besides the storage upgrade to 64GB, all of the Moto X’s specs remain the same. That means you’ll get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 2300 mAh battery.
The 64GB Moto X Pure Edition (GSM) is available now using the Moto Maker, and will set you back $599.99 unlocked. If you choose to add leather or a real wood finish to the back of your new Moto X, that will set you back an additional $25.
