Almost a year and a month after the Motorola X (1st generation) landed in-stores with U.S. Cellular the new Moto X is being released. Yes, from today you can now pick up the second generation Moto X on U.S. Cellular. The device did originally launch last month and was available direct from Motorola as well as from AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. However, if U.S. Cellular is your choice of carrier then now is the time to pick up the next-Gen X. Need to know the price? Of course you do!
If you are interested, then the Moto X is available straight up with no contract for $480. If you don’t really want to spend that much and more interested in a contract (or renewing or upgrading), then you can get the Moto X for $99.99 up-front. Of course you will still have to pay the normal monthly plan cost. At present it seems only the standard black model is available via U.S. Cellular, with no firm details on when either the black leather or Bamboo backs will land. Although they are expected sometime later in the month and will cost an additional $50 to purchase.
If you need a quick reminder on the device then the new Moto X comes with a 5.2” AMOLED display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution (423pp1). Inside the device comes offers 2GB RAM as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with an Adreno 330 GPU. In terms of cameras there is a 13MP rear camera and a 2MP front shooter. The device is available as 16 and 32GB variants although U.S. Cellular only seems to be listing the 16GB version at the moment. With this in mind it is worth remembering that there is no microSD card slot on this device so the 16GB is all you will get. The device comes running on Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) and is powered using a 2300mAh battery. Again, it is worth noting this is a non-removal battery so bare this in mind. So there you go. If you were waiting for U.S. Cellular to finally catch up with the other carriers then the waiting is finally over.
