U.S. version of Motorola Moto X Style will be called Moto X Pure Edition, features universal LTE banding
Motorola introduced the Motorola Moto X Style in New York this morning and the highly-spec'd handset will have some features available only to U.S. buyers. In the states, the device will be a Pure edition phone. In fact, the name of the phone in the U.S. will be the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition. With universal LTE banding, one model will cover all of the stateside carriers. All that is required is for the user to insert the appropriate SIM card.

Available from the MotoMaker website starting some time in September, the Moto X Pure Edition will give users faster updates. Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed, and will feature Motorola's bevy of special capabilities such as Moto Voice, Moto Assist, Moto Display and Moto Actions. It will come without any carrier bloatware and with no skin in order to provide users with a "pure" Android experience.

The phone features a 5.7-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 515ppi. Under the hood, you'll find the Snapdragon 808 SoC which includes a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with a highly regarded (by photo experts, according to Motorola) 21MP rear-facing camera. A 5MP front-facing snapper handles selfies using a wide angle lens. Motorola says that this is the fastest charging phone on the market, beating out the Samsung Galaxy S6 in a recorded comparison test shown during the live feed. The 3000mAh battery provides 30 hours of mixed use according to the manufacturer.

The Motorola Moto X Pure Edition is expected to be available in September, priced at $399.
