Motorola’s follow up to the original Moto X, dubbed the Moto X Gen 2 (although Motorola are just calling it the Moto X again) is due to arrive in retailers soon. Daniel’s been busy and he’s found that Harvey Norman will be stocking the Moto X Gen 2 for the retail price of $699, with stock expected to arrive in the first week of November (so, in a week or two).
The Moto X Gen 2, pictured above, will be available in Black and White initially, and sadly Australian users won’t see the custom designer options available through Moto Maker, which has again been denied to our shores.
Edit:Just a reminder, that back in September when Motorola announced the Moto X Gen 2 for Australia, they did say that only the 16GB model would be coming to Australia.
