Before you non-Republic Wireless customers get too excited, we’re talking about Sprint’s MVNO network here. That means you can’t buy this device and bring it to another carrier. For those unfamiliar, MVNOs are carriers that don’t own infrastructure, but buy it from other major providers, like Sprint in this case. MVNOs are usually cheaper when it comes to purchasing devices and service plans, so it’s nice to see the company offering the new Moto X for this cheap. Although, it’s not really a surprise, seeing as how they made headlines last year when they decided to sell the OG Moto X.
The Moto X will ship with Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and will obviously receive Lollipop in the coming weeks. Republic Wireless will continue to sell the Moto X (1st Gen.), Moto G, and Moto E, as well as the newest X iteration.
If you’re interested, December 10th is your day. You can buy the un-customized version straight from the carrier, or you can customize your own via Moto Maker on the same day. Need convincing that the Moto X is right for you? Head to our full review to find out more on the device!
