There is no denying that the Moto X has been one of the most hyped up smartphones, not only of the year, but in the mobile industry’s history. Now that it has been released, you’d think that all the commotion is over, but this smartphone’s story has not yet reached its conclusion.
We’ve known for quite some time, that the Moto X will only be the first in an entire line-up of devices, line-up not necessarily limited to smartphones (yes, rumor has it that Motorola also has a smart-watch in the pipeline). Even more, Motorola’s CEO (Dennis Woodside), has disclosed not too long ago that a cheaper Moto X version, aimed for the prepaid and developing markets, is also in the works.
Well, we might have stumbled on this cheap Moto X’s first public appearance. Take a look at the picture below and join us after the break.
According to the source of the picture, the cheaper version of Moto X will come with interchangeable back panels.
Unfortunately, no new info about this version of the Moto X has surfaced so far, but it’s reasonable to expect a much less powerful device (not that the original is a powerhouse).
As far as the price tag goes, Dennis Woodside has previously hinted that it will be around $200: “The experience of devices you can get for less than $200 is subpar right now,” Woodside said. “We want everyone to have access to affordable smartphones.”
We’ll keep digging for info, but in the meantime let us know if you’d be interested in a cheaper and less powerful Moto X, with interchangeable back shells.
