Moto X Now En Route To Australia


Seven months after launching in the U.S., and two months after the U.K., the unlocked variant of Motorola’s current flagship smartphone, the Moto X, is now on its way to Australia and will be available to purchase within the next couple of weeks. According to the support page on the manufacturer’s website, potential customers can pick up the handset in either black or white for AUD$549, and will be able to pop in a Telstra, Optus or Vodafone SIM card upon receipt, though, it is expected that support for more carriers will be added in the not too distant future.

The Moto X was released back in August 2013, and sports a gorgeous 4.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1280, a beefy 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, an Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32Gb of internal storage, a 10-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2,200 mAh battery.

The handset will ship running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean straight out of the box, but is upgradable to the latest build of 4.4.2 KitKat via a simple over-the-air update. Just pop in your SIM card, power on the handset, connect to a Wi-Fi network and you will instantly be prompted to download and install the hefty upgrade.
