Motorola has launched a 64GB variant of its Moto X (Gen 2) smartphone. The smartphone will be available in the US unlocked - or Pure Edition as Motorola calls it - for $100 more than the 32GB variant, which makes it $599.99 (roughly Rs. 37,900). Moto X (Gen 2) 64GB variant with leather or wooden back panel costs $624.99 (roughly Rs. 39,500).
Motorola announced the 64GB variant of the Moto X (Gen 2) handset on Twitter. "New 64GB #MotoX Pure Edition now available. Store more for just an extra $100 off-contract," tweeted Motorola Mobility.
Motorola Moto X Pure Edition, for those who are unaware, is a fancy name for the unlocked version of Moto X (Gen 2). It is worth mentioning that Motorola Moto X (Gen 2) is only available in 16GB and 32GB variants worldwide and the 64GB inbuilt storage stays Moto X Pure Edition exclusive for now. So if you've been waiting for a high capacity Moto X smartphone but been put off by limited storage, here's your chance, especially since the Moto X does not come with expandable storage.
To recall, the Moto X (Gen 2) features a 5.2-inch (1080x1920 pixel) OLED display with a pixel density of 423ppi, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The handset is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974-AC) processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM. It also comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with a f/2.25 lens with 4K video recording and dual-LED ring flash, as well a 2-megapixel front-facing camera capable of 1080p video recording. A 2300mAh battery backs the device.
