Motorola is getting a lot of things right with its new Moto X. Firstly, the American company has crafted an amazing flagship smartphone, an improvement on the first model in every way. Secondly, the brand also seems to be getting pricing right this time, with the Moto X set to land soon with a very enticing on contract price.Verizon, the largest carrier in the United States, has revealed that the company is landing on its network, with pre-orders set to start on September 26th. Big Red said that the bamboo and white versions of the handset would be available for $100 (and a monthly contract) until October 10th , a price that is a lot lower than the $199 price tag usually reserved for flagship smartphones. The Moto X comes with a 5.2-inch AMOLED 1080p full HD display, a 13 megapixel rear camera with 4x zoom and a flash ring around the lens, a 2.5GHz quad-core CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, an Adreno 330 578MHz GPU and 2GB of RAM. It will be available in 16GB and 32GB storage versions, a splash proof coating (not waterproof), and for all the purists out there Android 4.4 KitKat stock. For this version Motorola has constructed the device from a metal frame, meaning the X now feels even better in hand and more premium. The company announced this week that the flagship will be coming to T-Mobile and AT&T as well as Verizon, but the handset will not be landing on Sprint.
