Less than 24 hours ago, the Google-owned company announced that the highly customizable Moto X would not make its way to Europe. The device even comes with a whopping price tag of $199 with 2-year contract that may not be the most affordable device for most of the users. However, it appears as Motorola might launch a cheaper version of the much hyped Moto X that will make its way to international markets.
In an interview with CNET, Motorola Mobility CEO Dennis Woodside mentioned that more versions of Moto X will hit the market including a low cost Moto X. The cheaper version would target international markets where customers prefer prepaid devices rather than carrier subsidized ones – including prepaid wireless market in the US. The device will be priced lower in order to attract the customers as majority of high-end smartphones cost more way higher than $600.
According to CNET
Next on the company’s hit list is a device that is less expensive than the current Moto X. The device will be designed and priced to appeal to international customers in markets where people generally don’t buy subsidized devices, as well as the prepaid wireless market in the U.S., where wireless consumers are also expected to pay full price for devices.
The Moto X is expected to hit the market by the end of this month. It will also be available in Canada as Rogers exclusive and Latin America. The device will be available for $199 with 2 year contract for most cellular providers.
Is Moto X worth buying?
