Moto X Pure Edition coming Sept. 3

It looks like the Moto X Pure Edition will be available beginning Sept. 3, which is just a few weeks away.

Motorola on Wednesday mentioned the date in a Tweet, which was later pulled for unknown reasons. You can check out a screengrab of what Motorola said above. Previously the company said the device would arrive in September, but didn’t mention specifics.

To recap, the Pure Edition is Motorola’s third generation Moto X, and is an improved version in every way. Not only does it have some truly impressive specs—Snapdragon 808, 21-megapixel camera, 3GB of RAM, 5.7-inch QHD display—but it comes with the same non-obtrusive software tweaks that have been a staple of Motorola devices over the past few years. It’s basically a Nexus, but arguably better with tweaks like Moto Display, Assist, and more.

What’s particularly notable about the newest Moto X is what Motorola said about the device’s camera. The company definitively stated the handset will offer a camera that’s best in class, which is quite a big claim when you consider the kind of quality we’ve seen from the LG G4, Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Other specs of the Moto X Pure Edition include 3GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB/64GB of expandable storage, a 3000mAh battery, Turbo Charging support, front-facing stereo speakers and Android Lollipop out of the box. You can see our hands on of the device down below.

The Moto X Pure Edition will start at $399 and be fully unlocked, allowing users to take the device for a spin on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.
