Motorola Moto X Pure Edition to get T-Mobile LTE band 12 support with Marshmallow update
According to Motorola's David Schuster, who works as a member of Motorola's software product management team, the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition will be adding support for T-Mobile's LTE band 12 when it receives the update to Android 6.0. The carrier has been heavily advertising band 12, which it employs for its Extended Range LTE service.

T-Mobile's LTE band 12 uses the 700MHz range. Lower frequency spectrum not only travels farther than higher frequency airwaves, they also penetrate buildings better. The FCC will be auctioning off a chunk of low frequency 600MHz spectrum next year, that is no longer being used by television broadcasters.

The T-Mobile Motorola Moto X Pure Edition is undergoing the approval process for the Android 6.0 update at this moment, according to Schuster, who expects Motorola to push it out in the next few weeks. So if you are a T-Mobile customer who is thinking about going after the Moto X Pure Edition, feel free to do so since the handset will soon be supporting the carrier's LTE band 12.
