One of the (admittedly many) nice things about the original Moto X is that it was sold by all of the major US carriers, giving most US wireless consumers the chance to pick up Motorola’s then-flagship. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like that’ll be the case with the new Moto X.
Motorola’s official Twitter account said yesterday that the new Moto X “won’t be available on the Sprint network.” The only carriers that’ve been confirmed as selling the new Moto X so far are AT&T and Verizon.
One of the awesome trends that we’ve seen in mobile in recent years is the release of most major flagship smartphones on most, if not all, major carriers. That’s the case this year with devices like the HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3 and iPhone 6, but for whatever reason it appears that Motorola’s new handset won’t be a part of that trend. The good news for existing Sprint Moto X users is that Motorola has said that it’s planning to bring as many of its new software features to the OG Moto X as the hardware allows, so at least they’ll have some new goodies to play with on their current phone.
