Hello Moto Community,

 

Some of you are likely to have already seen the news, but... The Moto X is headed to the UK and O2 will have it available for customers in the coming weeks!

Just look at that beauty! ^

 

This phone has seen a lot of positivity over in the States from critics and users alike. The handset features a solid spec sheet as well as Google Now getting a new lease of life thanks to 'touchless' controls. Simply say "OK Google Now" to set certain tasks without ever touching the device.

 

Some key specs are:

- Dual-core 1.7GHz Krait

- 4.7" 720p AMOLED Display (312ppi)

- 2GB RAM

- 16/32GB Internal Storage

- Dual band WiFi / DNLA / Hotspot

- 10mp back camera with 30fps 1080p video / 2mp & 1080p video for front camera

 

We have not yet confirmed cost(s) or availability but please keep an eye on our coming soon page here > http://www.o2.co.uk/comingsoon

 

We'll also announce here when these details become available.

 

So, with Motorola being a Google-owned company, could the Moto X be 'the' ultimate Android mobile? Do you think it puts a threat on the future of 'Nexus' devices in favour of Google bringing new innovations to Motorola devices first?

What do you think?

I think they should have made it LTE, then it would be unbeatable for the price.

Motorola has been out of the limelight in the UK for many years and Apple and Samsung have taken the lead.

I think it will take time for Motorola to come out on top as people may be sceptical. Running Google Now is a benefit but I think it has to offer more features for it be considered "the best pure android device"

Will it not work on UK LTE frequencies then? isn't the US version LTE?

I wouldn't have thought that they would release it in the UK without 4G capability. I did read though, that it won't be as customisable (i.e. different colours) as you can have it on the US model. That wouldn't bother me at all anyway.
