Motorola Moto X Pure – Specifications, Price and Release

Motorola had brought us uniquely designed handsets ever since we can remember.  However, the crises they faced allowing 2 major changes in ownership somewhat brought toils and we witnessed these in previous handsets the company has released in the markets.  This time though, Motorola is pulling through with their newest smartphone, the Moto X Pure.

Moto X Pure is a midrange handset with a 5.7-inch gigantic screen.  Somewhere along the way, an 8-core endeavor has been found “lacking” so a lot of smartphone brands opted for hexacore.  As a reply, Motorola has also endowed this unit with one clocked at 1.8GHz and runs with 3GB RAM.


When it comes to ergonomics, it simply follows the problem of being ‘too big’ to be used single-handedly.  We can also add the fact that the main body sports plastic material we find rather cheap despite the handsome design.   If you can overlook these two, you can simply enjoy Moto X Pure’s more-than impressive characteristics as described below:




  • Body : 153.9 x 76.2 x 11.06 mm, 179g (plastic material main body)
  • Display : 5.7” IPS LCD, 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution, 515ppi
  • OS : Android Lollipop 5.1 (soon to be updated into Marshmallow 6.0)
  • Chipset/ CPU : Snapdragon 808, 1.8GHz Hexacore
  • GPU : Adreno 418
  • RAM                 : 3GB
  • Storage : 64GB + expansion of up to 128GB
  • Camera : 21MP primary with Dual LED, 5MP front with flash
  • Battery :3000 mAh, non-removable


Anyway, the chipset supports Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11 a, b, g, n, n 5GHz, ac and is splash and dust resistant (IP certified IP 52).  If you’re interested, you can buy the handset at the starting price of $399 (also available in 16GB and 32GB variants) via Motorola’s website or Amazon.
