Motorola brought the new Moto X and Moto G smartphones to the market last year and both of the handsets gave those in the market for a budget phone something to think about what it came to upgrade time. The Moto G and Moto X smartphones are offered by Motorola without any contract and pricing that is under $200 for either phone. The phones are quite impressive and there was little doubt that the company was not going to bring new models to the market this year. All of that has started to change this week as more information about new smartphones has been leaked online.
The brand new Moto X+1 is going to be ready for sale at some point this year, but for now, it is just about the rumours at this point. A few weeks ago, some details were leaked online and this week a little more information came to light. The Moto X was the more popular smartphones of the two models and that can be attributed to the fact that it was customizable in so many ways. Users could log into the Moto Maker to choose the colours and accent colours for the phone allowing for the most customizable smartphone on the market.
The Moto G was a little more watered down than the Moto X, but for the most part, was just as popular as a sub-$150 smartphone can be. The only catch was that the phones were not 4G LTE compatible. This time around, that could all change as 4G LTE models are expected for both originals. The brand new Moto X+1 is expected to hit the market and according to one Twitter account, it will be ready to go on AT&T’s network for $400.
According to the AT&T website, or a page that was put up for the Moto X+1, clearly shows the $400 price tag, but some are suggesting that could just be a place holder for the actual price and what you see is not what the phone is going to cost. The Moto X can be purchased for just $349, so even with the new design colours that will reportedly be available, the price should not be that much more. AT&T has not commented at this point so the price is just rumour. More official information will be available sooner than later.
