There is the Moto X, and then there is the Moto X Pure Edition, which will be a particular model that does not come with all of the bloatware which is normally associated with a carrier branded device. Having said that, it seems that there is a new update out there that will be able to bring bands 3, 5, and 7 support all the way to the new Moto X. Originally, the unveiled specifications of the Moto X Pure Edition as well as the AT&T model were touted to be able to support LTE bands 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 17, and 29, which ought to be more than capable of handling just about a slew of other networks worldwide.
However, the smartphone was released with supported LTE bands of 2, 4 and 17, which does not seem to be a good idea at all since most of the LTE bands 3 and 7 do see action in Europe and South East Asia, which are no small markets by any means. Thankfully, Motorola did announce that this new update, as mentioned above, will enable bands 3, 5, and 7.
This particular nugget of information was confirmed by a Motorola employee in the Moto X 2nd Gen discussion on Motorola Forums. Well, have LTE bands support, will travel – don’t you think that this is the new mantra for smartphone enthusiasts?
