Moto X smartphone gets a price cut, now available at $399 off-contract
Motorola, in an attempt to woo its customers in the new year, has permanently slashed the pricing of the Moto X.

Motorola on Wednesday announced that its flagship smartphone, the Moto X will now be available at a starting price of $399 on any major US carrier, without a contract.

Motorola's SVP Product Management, Rick Osterloh in a blog post confirmed the news and said, "We've been hearing a lot recently from people who want a new premium smartphone at a reasonable price without having to wait for a contract upgrade. That came through especially loud and clear during our holiday flash sales. So, from today (Wednesday) forward we're offering Moto X at an everyday starting price of just $399 on any major US carrier, without a contract. This includes customized devices." The blog post clearly confirms that the new price will be applicable to the customised Moto X units also.

The Motorola Moto X will now be available at $399, down from the previous price tag of $579 for an off-contract, unlocked unit.

Google unveiled the Moto X, a customisable Android smartphone in August 2013. The smartphone natively ran Android 4.3 Jelly Bean; however Motorola recently rolled out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update.

The Moto X features a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels. It is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960Pro Snapdragon processor along with 2GB of RAM. There is 16GB of inbuilt storage. It also sports a 10-megapixel rear camera accompanied by an LED flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The Moto X also features a shake gesture that directly opens the phone's camera app. Users can customise the body of the Moto X and choose from 18 back covers, different colour accents for the ring around the camera lens, accents around the volume and on-off buttons and get a personal message etched at the back of the phone.
