64GB Motorola Moto X on the way?

64GB Motorola Moto X on the way?
According to a published report out of Russia, we soon could be looking at a 64GB version of the Motorola Moto X. According to an image of the Moto Maker site from the report, a Moto X with that amount of native storage would cost $449.99 That would be $50 more than the 32GB variety, and $100 more than the 16GB version of the phone.

The report doesn't say when we could expect the new 64GB version of the Moto X to become available. A sequel to the Motorola Moto X, the Moto X+1 has already been leaked earlier this year, but the specs for that model have not been revealed.

The Motorola Moto X doesn't come with a microSD slot, so offering a 64GB variant of the phone might attract some digital hoarders to the phone.

Thanks for the tip!

UPDATE: We have heard from one of our loyal readers who informs us that not only is the 64GB Motorola Moto X real, but that it is coming to Sprint. No word about whether the other three major U.S. carriers will also be offering the model.

Thanks for the tip!

This phone is completely irrelevant, as far as hardware quality, it's subpar (lousy camera, low-density dim screen)

It's a midrange phone in nature. I think that price is too high.

The 32 GB iPhone 5C is $650. The 16 GB HTC One mini is $400. The 8 GB Galaxy S4 mini is $330. The 32 GB Moto X is $400, and it offers better specs than all of them. Motorola is pricing very competitively compared to their competition in the mid range market.

Their pricing is what cause the lukewarm sales of the regular sized Moto X. They should've priced it around the same price as the Nexus phones. That would've made more sense and would've made the Moto X more popular. Ball was dropped on that one.

It currently is the same price of the Nexus 5. I know, the Nexus 5 is a much better device for the money, but compared to Samsung and HTC, Motorola provides better specs for about the same price. And Apple overpriced the iPhone 5C like crazy, is has a lower performing hardware and is $250 more than the Moto X. The problem isn't the price, it's the brand recognition and marketing. Nobody can stand up to Samsung or Apple on those fronts, regardless of product quality.

Go Google/Lenovo. Smart phone today getting more and more expensive, we need this kind of competition, consumer win.

Since you say $400 for a 32GB and possibly a 64GB is priced high. Then what do you think of your dual core Iphone 5s and 5C those are priced to high.

The iPhone is irrelevant to this article.

The Motorola X was the device that proved that spec sheets and benchmarks don't matter. It functions, for the most part, better than most flagships. The phone is certainly relevant to many who care about the experience on the device rather than a spec sheet and bragging rights. That being said, what's the point of releasing this a month before the sequel is announced? I don't get it.

When it comes to the spec sheet, camera quality, display quality and battery life certainly do matter. Not to mention the phone was never future proof at all. Let's be honest, the only reason top grade components weren't used at the time, wasn't for reasons of a "good user experience", it was to keep manufacturing costs down. Motorola had already been bleeding revenue profusely. So try tried to spin user experience on what essentially is a mediocre product with some-alright software offerings.

Display quality and battery life were really good so I don't know what you're talking about. Saying that Moto X is irrelevant is extremely ignorant of you as many people prefer it to most phones released to date because of the comfort of holding the phone and the Active Display. As far as hardware quality and future proofing goes, it still is smoother than HTC One and Galaxy S4, both of which have been bogged down by 1080p displays and custom interfaces.

Display quality is awful on that 720p AMOLED display. It was trumped by the 1080p offerings on the same display, which looked brighter and had better whites. Let's not even compare the more advanced 1080p display on the S5. Anyone could have installed the same GPe ROMs on the phones you mentioned for a more optimized experience. And who is the many people you talk about? The handful of tech minorities in this site or ones like it are so minuscule

Display quality is subjective. Everyone prefers a different type of display.

I am DroidMAXX user. Earlier used Note2, S3, S4 (Indian). But I prefer DroidMAXX more than any phones. 5" 720p NON-PENTILE AMOLED is anyday better than 5" FHD PENTILE-MATRIX AMOLED of S4 imho, especially if you browse a lot. But the display of DroidMAXX is NOT without problems, but resolution is NOT an issue, imho. It is way too reflective outdoor, that it looks like a mirror, whereas S4 is looking good outdoor. I want X+1 to have improvement in that area only, imho. Once you have used ActiveNotifications, you will never want to miss it. It is THE BEST feature and much much better than some features from S-Bloat of Touchwiz. Further you can see some lag even on QuadCore of S4 due to S-Bloat and extra work of GPU for pushing the FHD resolution. But DualCore Moto X feels buttery smooth, reason being optimised software, same GPU of US S4, but lightweight 720p display. (Yes I have unlocked BL of DroidMAXX consumer edition and killed BigRed bloat) 32GB of storage and 3500mAh battery is morethan enough for me.

the only reason top grade components weren't used at the time, wasn't for reasons of a "good user experience", it was to allocate more battery to the always on/always listening chips. FTFY.

Both battery life and screen quality were more than satisfactory on the Moto X. The camera was really the only thing that left something to be desired. The user experience wasn't "spin", as having optimized hardware/software and genuinely useful feature offerings in the form of touchless control and active diplay resulted in quite a bit of consumer and professional-level praise, including a very positive writeup by Forbes (a magazine usually very critical of devices that don't boost people's stock portfolios, and this one surely didn't). They have done the "let's throw high-end everything into the device" thing before and it hasn't worked. By working within their means and focusing on making sure the user experience and ergonomics were great, they managed to wow users and critics without having the latest, greatest specs available. Having a 720p screen (with the same GPU of the higher spec'd flagships of other manufacturers) isn't necessarily a bad thing, given that it allows for faster functionality and better battery life. A barely recognizable bump in pixel density is not a huge deal. If the screen was bigger, say, 5" or more, I'd say that having a 1080p screen would be a bigger issue. Now does this phone compare to the current generation of devices? Not a chance. But it certainly holds its own within its generation, except for the camera quality. The camera is just shy of awful. I'd look for the Moto X+1 to do far better than its predecessor, but still likely not sell as much as Samsung, Apple, or LG. Taking a different approach to making smartphones than their competition is a huge advantage for the guys at Moto and I can't wait to see what the next step will be.

yeah, they do matter but Motorola planned the specs for the Moto X to a T so that they could provide a very specific user experience and judging from the critical acclaim for this phone it's a very good one. manufacturing costs really wasn't a big factor for Moto with their hands in Google's pockets.

If the Moto X+1 has Snap 800, 2GB RAM, a mSD slot, I would buy without blinking

Snap 800 and a better camera and I would buy it without hesitation.

"offering a 64GB variant of the phone might attract some digital hoarders to the phone" I didn't know that people who use memory on their phones to listen to music, watch videos, take/view photos, or record videos were now known as "digital hoarders". What should we call those people who are seemingly happy with 8-10GB free space as on many 16GB phones? "Digital minimalists" "Digital Greenies" "Content challenged" "Phone feature phobic" "Dumbphoners Anonymous" Any suggestions?

64GB is kind of excessive... i know, i have a 64GB iPhone 5S.

I would have really considered this...... But unfortunately even the 32 gig version didn't see the light in India, so a 64 GB version would be highly unlikely.
