According to a leaked Verizon document, Ol’ Red will begin selling the new Moto X on September 26. Pricing will be set at $99.99 with a two-year contract for the black or Moto Maker 16GB model or $24.99 per month with Verizon Edge. The more capacious 32GB model will be priced at $149.99 with a two-year commitment or $27.40 with Edge.
The leaked doc also notes that Verizon may run a special promotion on the bamboo version of the new Moto X. From September 26 through October 10, the two-year contract price for the bamboo model will be $99.99, eliminating the $25 premium that the wood models usually carry.
A second Verizon document leak shows that the new Moto X may not launch with Advanced Calling 1.0 enabled. Advanced Calling 1.0 includes features like HD Voice (Voice over LTE) and support for simultaneous voice and data. The leak suggests that Advanced Calling 1.0 will come to the Moto X in a software update that’ll roll out “later in the fall.”
While it’s kind of a bummer that Verizon customers will have to wait a bit longer for their new Moto Xs than AT&T folk, it’s also not surprising since we saw a similar situation with last year’s Moto X. And hey, it’s only a few extra days.
