As expected, the Moto X is finally making its way to Australia. The Moto X’s Australian launch comes just a little more than a half year after the handset first arrived to the United States, though the Moto X is still more than capable of providing an excellent Android experience.

The Moto X will set customers back AUD$549 directly from Motorola (currently listed as coming soon), though no carrier-specific announcements have been made just yet. Judging by frequencies, the handset should support Optus, Vodafone and Telstra networks. There is no planned Moto Maker support for the Australian model of the device, so your color choices are limited to white and black.

Aside from differences in frequency, the Australian Moto X is the same as what we’ve seen in other markets. That means you’ll get Motorola’s X8 computing platform, which at its heart is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU. Other specs include 2GB RAM, a 4.7-inch 720p display, 16GB storage, a 10MP ClearPixel camera, 2MP front cam and a 2200 mAh battery.

For more details on what to expect from the Moto X, be sure to check out our full review.

Any of our Australian readers planning on this one up, if so will you buy the handset outright or will you be looking to pick it up directly from a carrier?
