Republic Wireless and Motorola have been pretty tight over the past year, with the Moto X, Moto G and Moto E all launching on the Wi-Fi-focused operator. That’s why it should come as no surprise that the Moto X (2nd Gen.) is headed Republic’s way too.
The Moto X (2nd Gen.) will launch at Republic Wireless on December 10 at a price of $399 for the 16GB model or $449 for the 32GB version. You’ll also be able to customize your Republic Wireless Moto X (2nd Gen.) through Motorola’s Moto Maker tool.
Republic’s Moto X (2nd Gen.) is largely similar to every other Moto X (2nd Gen.), meaning that it’s got a 5.2-inch 1920x1080 AMOLED display, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, a 2300mAh battery and Android 4.4.4. The device runs on Sprint’s 4G LTE network and, because it’s a Republic Wireless phone, it can send calls and messages over Wi-Fi.
Motorola’s new Moto X is one of the better Android phones available on the market, and so it’s great to see that it’s heading to Republic Wireless’s shelves. Even better is that its base price is $100 less than the standard no-contract Moto X (2nd Gen.) and that Republic customers will be able to create a personalized device on day one. Win-win-win.
