Motorola Is Finally Bringing The Moto X To The U.K.


Motorola has today announced that it is bringing its flagship Moto X to the United Kingdom. The device will be available from February 1, and it’ll cost £380 ($624) off-contract or around £25 ($41) on a two-year plan. Unfortunately, it won’t be available with the same customization options that U.S. customers have seen, however.

Instead, the U.K.’s Moto X will be available in black only — unless you buy it from Phones 4U, which will have exclusivity on the white model for the first three months. Aside from its lack of customization options, though, the international Moto X will be the same as the U.S. model.

It features a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED display, a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, and up to 32GB of internal storage. There’s also a 10.5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and 4G LTE connectivity.

The U.K. already has the cheaper Moto G, of course, but that has a smaller display, a slower processor, and no 4G connectivity. It also has a 5-megapixel camera rather than a 10.5-megapixel one. You get a lot more with the Moto X, then, but you pay a lot more, too.

The Moto G can be had for just £130 ($213) off-contract in the U.K., which is a whopping £250 less than its bigger brother. Most would argue that the Moto X’s extra features aren’t worth that.
