The long awaited launch of the Moto X (2014) may be imminent with The Good Guys now listing the phone on their website, with an estimated shipping time of 5-10 Days.
The Moto X Gen 2 – model #: XT1092 – is listed for pre-order at $697 which sits just under the $699 price we’ve heard will be the RRP when it officially launches. Further, it appears that at this stage, The Good Guys are only accepting pre-orders online, so no going to stores for this one. In late September, Motorola officially announced that the phone would be the 16GB model, and would be available in Black Resin and Bamboo Wood versions, but so far only the Black Resin model appears to be available to pre-order from The Good Guys.

While Motorola has not yet officially announced the phones availability, the 5-10 shipping date confirms the late November launch window as suggested by Harvey Norman on their website earlier this month. We hope to find out more about the actual launch date of the Moto X Gen 2 quite soon, so stay tuned.
And it’s gone. Looks like The Good Guys slipped up on this one. Hopefully we hear something soon, but at this stage, Motorola Australia has not released anything else on the Moto X Gen 2. We’ll keep you posted on further updates.
