Motorola is back with a new version of its flagship Moto X handset, and it may be the best version yet.
The Moto X Pure Edition was announced on Tuesday morning by Motorola, and despite some naming confusion (it will be known as the Moto X Style outside of the U.S.), it was thrilling to watch the announcement. Motorola went for the gusto this year with a nearly edge-to-edge display, increased RAM, increased storage options, the addition of expandable storage and a lot more. This new Moto X is really a definite step above last year.
Seeing, as they say, is believing, however. Below you will find the new Moto X Pure Edition pitted against last year’s Moto X, and we think it will be easy for you to see how much has changed.
