Eager to try the brand new Motorola Moto X handset but still don’t know when to expect it? Let us share the latest rumors with you. The smartphone will reportedly start shipping somewhere late August – early September, though exact Motorola X release date has not been specified yet.
Rumor has it the Motorola Moto X will be available via three official carriers: AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. Unfortunately, nothing is known about its availability via T-Mobile. AT&T subscribers will be the first to get the handset starting August 23rd. The fact that the carrier will be the first to offer the gadget brings a number of privileges to its customers, who will be free to subscribe to Motor Maker website for choosing 16 Moto X color options. Besides, AT&T will have an exclusive offer for its subscribers: it will be the only carrier to let you customize the Moto X design. Color customization extends not only on the rear panel but also on the volume rocker, camera ring and power button.
Verizon has set Motorola X release date for August 29th, according to the leaked Best Buy inventory.
