Most users who get a developer friendly #Android product are of the assumption that the company would encourage developer like actions. But it seems like the #MotoX Pure Edition is an exception to that. A new revelation has found that if the user tries to unlock the bootloader of the handset, #Motorola will not entertain warranty requests.
This means that should something go wrong with your device and if it has an unlocked bootloader, you will not get “free” support from the company. The information was given by a company representative on a forum post who also went on to say that the same caveats will apply even if you have Moto Care coverage for your device.
The company will still fix hardware defects on the smartphone if any, but that’s pretty much it. This is quite unfortunate given that Motorola’s smartphones were always known to be dev friendly. But with this statement, the company has made it pretty clear that there’s no such thing anymore.

Customers in the U.S. can now pre-order the #MotoX Pure Edition, with a starting price of $399.99. Naturally, you will end up shelling out some more if you choose 32 or 64GB storage variants, but $399.99 for a flagship product is a very good price tag.
The company is yet to provide a specific shipping timeline for pre-orders, so we’re still in the dark about when the handset will arrive on the customers’ doorsteps. The pre-orders were originally supposed to go up on Thursday, but the company has decided to start the proceedings a day in advance.
For those who are new to the Moto X Pure Edition, it is nothing but an American variant of the Moto X Style and carries the same hardware specifications underneath. That includes a 5.7 inch Quad HD display, a six core Snapdragon 808 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 16, 32 or 64GB of storage (expandable up to 128GB via microSD), a 21-megapixel rear camera, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and a 3,000 mAh battery pack.
