Verizon Motorola Moto X phone launched – Release date, features, and specs

Verizon has used Twitter as a platform to finally announce the official final word on the availability of the standard non Moto Maker version of the Motorola Moto X for the Big Red. Verizon has tweeted that the Moto X will finally be available in the stores starting August 29th.

Moto X is Motorola’s customizable flagship phone. The smartphone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core 1.7GHz Krait processor complemented by an Adreno 320 GPU.

It has 2 GB of RAM with 16/32 GB of internal storage options. The phone has a 10 megapixel primary camera and a 1.4 megapixel secondary camera. The phone runs the Android Jelly Bean OS 4.2.2.

The phone would not be available online immediately but would be up for order online. The device would also be made directly available in the store in a few weeks.


Regardless of where the Verizon users buy their device from, they will need to pay at least $199 as a down payment and sign up for a two year service agreement with the carrier.

This is just for the base black and white colors. For the customized Moto X for Verizon with a lot of color options to choose from, you may have to wait for a little longer.

This is a disappointment for the users who were hoping to customize their phone on the Moto Maker website and then purchasing. Also Verizon users will be able to lay their hands on the Moto X about a week after the device is first launched on AT&T.
