Moto X

The Moto X price is tipped to start at $99.99 on-contract in the fourth quarter of the year, a $100 price drop compared to the original launch price.

Furthermore, the wooden version of the Moto X is said to also arrive in Q4, and to cost $50 extra, which is something that has been discovered on Motorola’s own website a few days ago.

The news is not official just yet, but it comes via well-known leakster @evleaks, who has been accurate in the past with his leaks. In addition to revealing new pricing details for the Moto X, the same source also posted an image of four distinct wood-based Moto X versions.

Currently, the Moto X is available for $199.99 or $249.99 with new two-year contracts, depending on capacity, Assuming the new information is accurate, these prices will drop to $99.99 and $149.99 for the 16GB and 32GB Moto X versions, respectively.

It’s not clear whether the $100 discount will also be applied to off-contract purchases, as @evleaks specifically mentions that the price drop refers to on-contract Moto X models.

Interestingly, the Moto X is already cheaper in Canada, where the 16GB model sells for $149.99 with new contracts – it was initially launched for $189.99 with new two-year agreements, and soon discounted to $169.99 on contract.

It might not be necessarily related, but we’ll also remind you that Google has dropped the price of the Nexus 4 by $100 in the U.S., with similar discounts also available in other markets.

    Good. Now people will stop whining.

      I think it was because of the “whining”

      • End in sight

        I was one of those whiners and I hope someone listened. Now I can consider buying this phone.

          I will continue to whine until i see a realistic off contract price. I don’t do contracts because with them you end up paying the whole phone and more compared to cheaper services. Also you are more or less stuck with that phone for 2 years.

    If they are going after the American market that’s fine but if they plan to keep it at 630$ per unit off contract, then they can kiss most of Europe goodbye.

      the phone isnt offered in Europe

      • Luka Mlinar

        Yea, but it will be.
