New Motorola Moto X for AT&T shown off on video

New Motorola Moto X for AT&T shown off on video
Motorola’s brand new Moto X will be released by AT&T soon, and customers will be able to pre-order it starting tomorrow, September 16, for $99.99 on contract. Until then, AT&T is providing a detailed look at its new Moto X in a 5-minute promo video (embedded below).

The video presents both the hardware, and software features of the Moto X, including its 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, the 13 MP rear camera, the quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, Moto Voice, Moto Assist, Moto Display, and so on. It also allows AT&T customers to take a peek at some Moto X accessories, like the Motorola Hint wireless earbud.

Running a pure version of Android KitKat, the new Moto X can be customized via Moto Maker (just like last year’s Moto X). You can choose from dozens of back covers to make the handset truly yours. To find out more about the new smartphone, check out our Moto X review.

Verizon and US Cellular also confirmed that they’d sell the Moto X, apparently starting later this month. In addition, Motorola will offer an unlocked Moto X Pure Edition.

They still have the Moto s in the horizon. 1440p sd805. Flagships a plenty. Heres to hoping the battery doesnt suck ass like the moto x.

I dunno. If you ever owned a 2013 Moto X you'd realize that the phone was WAY more than the sum of its parts. It's got a lot of personality and was an EXCELLENT phone. Reviewers across the Internet raved about it. Even The Verge with their iPhone lust said the 2014 Moto X might be the best Android phone ever made. Give it some credit.

I wouldn't trust the verge about anything so that's not saying much.

It's not just the Verge, If you take the effort to Google "Moto X 2014 review" you'll end up with one positive review after another, after another... Take it from people who've actually given the phone a chance, This thing rocks all other phones on the market.

I have a Moto X with a wooden back. I think it is great. The "breath" feature is great, the touchless voice controls are great, the shape is great and the wood is awesome. The battery is average and since I am an average phone user, it is just fine for my needs. Also, I sold a G2 to get the Moto X, lol. The 720p AMOLED screen looks much better than the 1080p G2 screen and the G2 lagged a lot. I think wayyyyy more average people such as myself should buy a non contract Moto X and get on a plan like straight talk or other monthly plan which is $45 a month. That is what I did.

To say the phone was excellent is an exaggeration; battery life average at best.

Because they don't want laggy, outdated, horrible software, among many things...

I have the 2013 Moto X and I wouldn't trade it for any other phone on the market. Not the Galaxy s5, the LG G2 or G3, the iPhone 6 Plus, HTC One M8... Anything other than the 2014 Moto X just isn't good enough to replace my 2013 Moto X.

The G2? You mean the fragile phone with the awkward power button placement, heavy overlay and older specs? That G2? The 2014 Moto X is a hell of a flagship, and even its battery life (which people thought was going to suck) is acceptable for all day usage. Your comment is meaningless.

I have the G2 and trust me you don't wanna get it. Getting the older Moto X beats getting this. The phone is so fragile and I ended up replacing the screen 3 f**king times (1 drop each and it wasn't my fault), its also really laggy with an ugly LG overlay (LG decided not to give us the G3 interface and if you put a custom ROM, the battery becomes as weak as a Nexus 5), the phone camera also sucks (when there's any tiny bit of darkness, the viewfinder becomes the laggiest sh** ever and I'm disappointed with the results of the "13MP". ) Bottom line DO NOT GET THE G2

I really like this but the battery life is just bad...

Yes it is, don't waste your money.

Really wish they had kept the phone under 5 inches...

That video was way too long AT&T. Touch wiz videos are shorter.

It actually seemed like a compilation of short, similar videos going over the same points in slightly different ways. They likely won't show all 5 minutes at once as a promo.

If I'm into a big phone 5" up, i would definitely get this and I'm an Apple fan! Wait, I like a jailbroken iPhone/iPad. Without jailbreak, I would stop buying iPhones/iPads. :)

Why MOTO ruined this fantastic phone with 2300mAH battery?

flagship phone with half a day battery life and limited 11gb usable memory. what else to say?

if by "half a day" you mean "half of 24 hours," maybe. Most reviewers reported no issues getting the Moto X through an entire work day. Also for the base 16 gig version, that much usable space is actually better than average.
