The hotly announced Moto X smartphone could be getting a Google Play edition soon according to The Verge. The exact time frame is not available, but it is said that the smartphone will arrive in a few months from now, maybe in time for the holidays. For the time being, the availability of the Moto X is limited to carriers. The game could open up drastically if Google launches the smartphone through its retail channel. However, this new version of the Moto X will probably miss out on most of the customization as well as the gesture features that we’ll see in the carrier variants.
The main advantage of a stock version of the Moto X is that the users won’t have to deal with unnecessary bloatware from carriers. So that will be something to look forward to. Motorola will also begin selling the bootloader unlocked version of the Moto X soon in its individual capacity. While the contract prices have already been revealed at $199, the unlocked pricing is yet to follow. So make sure you keep an eye on the news as Google might announce the Vanilla Moto X in the coming months.
