Motorola launched the new Moto X earlier last week and specified the option to have an unlocked bootloader option available for the customers. Today, the manufacturer has rechristened this as the “Pure Edition” model of the smartphone, which will run a stock build of Android and will be devoid of any of the carrier bloatware. Obviously, the bootloader on the smartphone will be unlocked as well.
This version of the smartphone will have no carrier branding either, which should mean that update rollouts should be quicker than usual. When Motorola says that it’s a “Pure Edition” model, it certainly doesn’t intend to remove all of the software features, but only those bloats which are considered unnecessary by the users.
There’s no word on how much this version of the Moto X will cost, but we don’t think it will be any pricier than the regular unlocked model. It’s interesting that the company likes to call this the pure edition, which is a clear indication that bloatware doesn’t sit along well with the folks over at Motorola. What do you think of a Pure Edition Moto X? Let us know in the comments below.
