Despite numerous leaks (okay, it was more like a steady stream) revealing just about everything there was to know about the Moto X months in advance, the one area Motorola had everyone guessing was on the price. Oddly enough, many of you are still guessing, with Motorola only revealing how much the Moto X will cost with a 2-year agreement, cleverly leaving out the full retail price. While some are guessing that might have to do with the phone — which offers semi mid-ranged specs — will be priced at upwards of $500. Sounds a little steep, especially considering the competition.
Well, it seems Motorola might still have a few tricks up their sleeves. As reported by CNET, it seems Motorola is still working on a lower priced version of the Moto X targeting pre-paid and emerging markets. No word on specs or specific timing of release, but Motorola did mention it would launch in the next few months. Curious to see how much they’ll have to skimp on to get that price down even lower, and makes you wonder if a more higher-end Moto X isn’t also in the works?
