Verizon Reduces Price Of Its Moto X To $49.99

Verizon Reduces Price Of Its Moto X To $50

For a limited time, starting today until October 20th, Verizon Wireless is offering its Moto X for only $49.99 with a two-year agreement. Previously, the device was offered by the carrier for a price of $99.99 on-contract.


If customers want to get a Moto X with a wood or leather rear cover, they will still need to pay the required extra $25.00. Similarly, those who want to upgrade from a 16 gigabyte Moto X to one that has 32 gigabytes of internal storage will need to pay an additional $50.00.


The latest Moto X was launched by Verizon Wireless in September 26th last month. The black Moto X 16-gigabyte edition was offered by the carrier for $99.99 with a two-year agreement, while the bamboo rear cover edition was offered on a limited time basis only, also for $99.99 on-contract.


Now that Verizon has slashed $50.00 off its Moto X offering, fans of the smartphone will be able to get it for a significantly reduced price. Although because the offer only stands for the weekend, they will need to take action very soon. Mind you, Verizon may never offer anything like this for a long time. And one may be hard-pressed to find a Moto X deal that is cheaper. Yes, Amazon's similarly priced offer does come to mind, but you would not be able to customize your Moto X if you buy it from there. That is because Verizon customers can make use of Moto Maker, the online tool that lets people customize the Moto X units they ordered. 


Those who do purchase the latest flagship device from Motorola over the weekend will have gotten a device that is very, very impressive, to say the least. The Moto X comes with an impressive 5.2-inch 1920 by 1080 resolution display screen, as well as a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. In terms of hardware specifications, the Motorola device packs a 2.5 GigaHertz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, with an Adreno 330 graphics processing unit (GPU). The smartphone is powered by a 2,300 mAh battery.


The Moto X currently runs on Android 4.4.4. Motorola has stated, however, that it will be updating the device soon to Android 5.0 Lollipop, the latest version of the Android mobile operating system released by Google just recently.
