Cyber Monday deals on Android devices don’t get much better than this little cracker from Motorola. For just six hours, the company is slashing $140 off its new Moto X, bringing its price down to just $359 off-contract. You’ll also be able to get the device on contract with Verizon for just a penny.

That’s quite an incredible discount when you consider that the new Moto X only made its debut three months ago. In fact, it’s so good that it makes the second-generation Moto X just $100 more than the original from retailers like — and it’s well worth that extra cash.

In addition to its 5.2-inch 1080p display, the new Moto X packs a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and an impressive 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. What’s more, the device is already receiving Motorola’s Android 5.0 Lollipop update.

The new Moto X has been incredibly well received by both users and reviewers, with many labeling it the best Android-powered smartphone you can buy right now. If you’ve been thinking about getting one for yourself, Cyber Monday is the day to do it. But you won’t have long to make your purchase.

The deal is available on a first come, first served basis while supplies last, and only between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday, December 1. You’ll need to visit Motorola’s website to claim a promotional code for the discount, which will be valid until December 15, allowing you to pay just $359 for the unlocked device, or 1 cent with a two-year contract on Verizon.

Motorola is also offering 30% off all accessories with your Moto X purchase.
