Motorola starts phasing out the original Moto X, recommends the new model instead
The brand new Moto X is available to buy in the US since earlier this month, and it looks like Motorola has already started phasing out the Moto X from last year. If you visit Motorola’s US website you’ll notice that the original Moto X smartphone can no longer be bought (or customized in Moto Maker, for that matter). Folks who are still interested in the old handset are being advised to check out the Moto X 2014 edition, which Motorola hopes you’ll “love even more.”

Just like the original model, the new Moto X can be purchased for as low as $99.99 on contract. Off contract, prices start at $499.99. The second generation Motorola flagship smartphone is larger and faster than the original, as it sports a 5.2-inch 1080p display and is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor. The handset also offers a more solid construction - thanks to an aluminum frame that wraps around its edges. You’ll find everything you need to know about the new device in our Moto X review here.

US aside, the new Moto X is also rolling out in other regions. For example, the handset is being released in India starting today. We're expecting the original Moto X to start disappearing from stores in the near future.
