Is the Moto X coming to more international markets this August?

Rogers Moto X video leak

The Moto X will reportedly launch in various international markets this year, if a certain report is to be believed.

According to Brazilian website MobileExpert, the handset will be launched in the region in August. Apparently Motorola Brazil has confirmed via Twitter that the launch for the handset is apparently set for August, although an actual launch date or pricing details have not been mentioned:

We already know the handset is heading to Canada thanks to that leaked Rogers video showing the device in action.

When checking regional Motorola X websites, we have noticed that both the Brazilian and Argentinian Motorola sites show Moto X teasers – a black background with white text (see images below). The Brazilian teaser reads “Moto X Aguarde” (Moto X Wait?) while the Argentinian teaser reads “Moto X Muy Pronto” (Moto X Coming Soon?).

We have also checked other Motorola sites for European, Asian and African countries and/or regions, but the teaser page has not come up.

Only two other regional Motorola websites show the same teaser text, the U.S. and Canadian ones, but for both the text is a little changed: “Moto X August 1, 2013.” Considering that these local websites show different teaser text for the handset, should we understand from the U.S. and Canadian pages that the phone will actually be launched on August 1, as some rumors indicate? We’ll only have the official answer to that question in two days.

    So there’s a chance we will not see it released in Europe (at least not at the same time as the US)?

      and probably with the same shitty availability as nexus devices, only in a few countries with no international shipping

        If it’s like the nexus 4 then it would be fine for France ! I saw a post from a french android news website said that the moto X could be available only in america… I hope it’s false for me and every european fellows

        Moto X and Nexus have different business models.

        Nexus is subsidized by Google and are sold in limited quantity to lure people to set up accounts with Google Play.

        I think Motorola want to make money Moto X and they need to sell lots of it.

          “Nexus is subsidized by Google and are sold in limited quantity to lure people to set up accounts with Google Play.”

    There was a rumour courtesy of Ausdroid that Telstra (Australia’s biggest phone provider) was testing the Moto X on their network.

    Motorola were present in India in the era of feature phones, i had owned a W220 and the ROKR e6

    they had the best tv commercials in India for their devices and then…..
    It was shocking to see motorola shutting shop in India, despite launching the DROID Milestone, DROID MAXX and Atrix-2
    The Atrix-2 got the ICS update as well
    and then after years of presence they moved out

    I hope this means their return to one of the largest cellphone market in the country
