Moto X Pure Edition preorders start US tomorrow, UK Moto X Style to arrive September 21st?
After plenty of hinting that the Moto X Pure Edition would arrive September 3rd, Motorola has finally confirmed the launch plans for its latest flagship. Those interested in the Moto X Pure Edition will have the opportunity to start pre-ordering the phone from the Moto Maker tomorrow, September 2nd.
The entry-model Moto X Pure Edition will set consumers back just $399, though you can expect to pay more for higher storage tiers or for more premium material choices in the Moto Maker. There’s no word on exactly when the phone will start shipping, but many times these types of pre-orders don’t require much of a wait. Hopefully we’ll get more clarification tomorrow.

What makes the Moto X Pure Edition, known outside of the US as the Moto X Style, so exciting isn’t just the pricing or its exceptional specs. What really stands out here is that the US version will have just one variant. That means if you buy the Moto X Pure to use on Verizon and decide to leave for AT&T, no problem. Want to go from UScellular to Sprint? Sure. As far as we know, all major carriers (including the 4th biggest carrier, UScellular) will play nicely with this phone, as should any compatible MVNOs and probably even a number of even smaller regional carriers.
For those outside of the US waiting for the Moto X Style, we also have a bit of news on that front. Clove UK is now taking orders for the Moto X Style in black or white with an estimated shipping date of September 21st. Whether Clove is acting on official information remains unseen, but we wouldn’t be too surprised to see the Moto X Style reach other retailers and carriers sometime in later September.
