Moto X was undoubtedly one of the most awaited smartphones of this year. Motorola which appeared to be a company that never ever competes with the likes of Samsung and Apple are suddenly in the news thanks to its new customizable Moto X smartphone. You may have thought after Moto X releases, all the buzz related to it may cool down but it does not seem to happen yet.
Motorola Mobility’s CEO Dennis Woodside has revealed that they are working on a cheaper edition of Moto X which is mainly targeted towards prepaid users and markets that are in developing phase. It is probably going to be called Moto X Mini.
The pics that we have got for you may be the cheaper edition of Moto X, the Moto X Mini that Woodside is talking about.
The recent rumor revolving around the Moto X Mini indicates that the device will be shipped with interchangeable back covers. However, apart from this we do not have any information on the low budget Moto X phone. We guess that if it is going to be available with an affordable price tag, it will not be that powerful as original Moto X is.
What we do know about the cheaper Moto X through Woodside is that the product will be priced at $200. In an interview with CNET, Woodside revealed that they have revealed only the first of the Moto X phone now and they will be releasing new devices under the Moto X brand in the near future.
Woodside said that in the developing markets where handsets are not available at affordable rates through carriers, potential customers are price-sensitive. Even in US, many brands like Samsung, HTC, Apple, and Sony are planning to launch cheaper versions of their flagship devices.
For instance, Samsung came out with Galaxy S4 Mini; HTC One Mini is going to be unveiled soon; the Apple is planning to reveal the cheaper iPhone 5C in the next month; and Sony is planning to roll out the cheaper Sony Honami Mini very soon. Even Nokia is going by same game plan by releasing a beeline affordable device like Lumia 520 and Lumia 521.
