Description

The Motorola Moto X Pure Edition comes with a 5.7-inch LCD display, protected by Gorilla Glass 3. A resolution of 1440 x 2560 gives the screen a pixel density of 520ppi. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 808 SoC, which includes a hexa-core 1.8 GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside with 16GB/32GB/64GB of internal storage. Those requiring additional memory can use the 128GB capacity microSD slot on board. Motorola says that the 21MP rear-facing camera on the Moto X Pure Edition is the best camera that it has ever produced. Both the back and front-facing shooters feature an aperture of f/2.0, and the camera on front is equipped with a wide angle lens. The phone supports 4G LTE (Cat.6, 300Mbps) connectivity, and is covered with a nanocoating that protects the phone from accidental spills and light rain.
