CNET First Look
Moto X Style (Pure Edition) takes a leap with bigger, better screen and camera, unlocked quad-band LTEIt's got a big display and improved cameras, and the $399 phone, called the Pure Edition in the US and Style elsewhere, will work on any carrier out of the box. We take a look in NYC.
if you've been looking for a step up Moto X the time has come. Im here in New York with Moto X style which is going to be a 5.7 inch QHD phone. This thing is more impressive than the Nexus 6 last year. The Nexus had a A 5.9 inch display. This is 5.7. But this has something that the last Moto X, in a lot of people's opinions including ours needed, a better camera. 21 megapixel on the rear. But not just the megapixels, Motorola claims that its going to take clearer better photos. Even claiming that its going to beat out the iPhone 6 plus. We'll see about that, plus it's got turbo charging like always, but they claim it's even faster at doing that than the Samsung Galaxy S6. It's going to be available in September for 399 unlocked, sold directly to those who want to buy it. Plus, it's going to be quad band, so you can pick this up, and hook it up with any Service or carrier that you want in the US with Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, whatever. You can hook it up and use it which is the way all phones should really be but they're not. And of course, it's Moto maker so you've got a lot of sustainable wood back, leather finishes, seven different metallic finishes. There's a new soft touch back and there are different metal frames. So a lot of different options This is part of three new phones that Motorola is launching. This one is going to be available the latest, but for a lot of people the wait might be worth it. Now this phone has two different names. Overseas its going to be known as the Moto X Style, but in the US its going to be called the Moto X Pure Edition, which is to help people feel like they understand that its pure android or that you can purely connect to lots of carriers. Just keep that in mind. I'm Scott Simon with the new pretty sexy Moto X Style. [MUSIC]
