Motorola’s flagship Moto X smartphone will land on Verizon starting Aug. 29, according to a leaked Best Buy inventory screenshot obtained by Android Central. The latest report suggests the device’s planned release date has been pushed back since earlier this month, when a leaked Verizon roadmap indicated that the device would launch on Aug. 23.
If you can’t wait to get your hands on the Moto X, you might be better off going through AT&T or Sprint, which will start selling the new handset on Aug. 23, according to Droid Life. AT&T customers will have exclusive first access to the MotoMaker website, however, which will launch for other carriers later this year.
The Moto X was unveiled at a press event earlier this month in New York City and is expected to launch on all the major U.S. carriers by the end of Aug., according to multiple reports. The handset comes equipped with a 4.7-inch 720p display, a Snapdragon S4 Pro Processor, a 10-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, 2GB of RAM, and 16 or 32GB of storage. It runs Android 4.2.2 and offers a number of special Google-powered features.
We’re super excited for the device to launch, even if it does offer mid-range specs, mainly because it performs very well with a near-vanilla version of Jelly Bean. We’ll be bringing you our full review shortly, but in the meantime be sure to check out our hands-on video and full Moto X review.
