The new upgraded Moto X is already available for pre-orders in AT&T and Motorola websites, but now its coming to Verizon. Moto X (2nd Gen) will start selling it this week with a bamboo back promotion.
Verizon’s new Moto X will be the first Android device that requires Verizon’s Advanced Calling 1.0 to enable simultaneous voice and data connections. However a software update would be required to enable this feature as the phone will be not launching with this support.
Verizon Moto X 2nd Gen Price and Release date
Moto X will be available for sale from Friday, September 26th. The pricing plans will be the same as other carriers. Verizon Moto X will be sold for $99.99 tied to a two-year contract and for the 32GB Moto X it would be $149.99 with a two-year contract with the carrier.
You can also expect limited time promotion offer during the launch. Its rumored that, Verizon will also offer the new Moto X with a bamboo back for the same $99.99 price tag — means it’s absolutely free since it costs $25 normally.
The devices will also be available on Edge plans with the black/resin model costing $24.99, white/bamboo for $27.49, 16GB Moto Maker for $24.99, and 32GB Moto Maker for $27.49.
