At Ausdroid we first started hearing about a lower end version of the Moto X called the Moto DVX, back in March, when we were advised that a lower end version of the Moto X would be coming to Australia rather than the launch device that was going to be released in the US, but the rumours surrounding specs are spreading fast.
The latest rumours are that the Motorola DVX looks pretty much like a Moto X with a slightly smaller (4.5 inch LCD vs the Moto X with a 4.7 inch) screen and larger bezel. It will perform similarly thanks to it’s near identical specs including the Snapdragon S4 Pro chip internally. There is even suggestion Dual-SIM capabilities, perhaps in the DVX or perhaps as a separate model. This could be quite the sale item for Motorola, especially here in Australia where Motorola have not launched a new phone in over a year.
Then we get to the price; suggestions are that the phone will cost around US$200 – US$250.
That’s high end specs in a device at mid – low end device pricing range which can only assist in increasing the footprint of Android as well as the brand recognition of Motorola as a genuine player in the Android space. Now we wait and hope that at least one of the major carriers in Australia adopt the device for their sub $50 per month commitment contracts.
Does a budget conscious device that has high end performance interest you, or are you hanging out for a specific phone thats perhaps just coming over the horizon?
