Of the newly released Motorola smartphones, perhaps the one that stands out is the one smartphone that surpasses boundaries featuring no carrier whatsoever. May be perhaps taking a cue from the Sony range of smartphones introduced to the US market off-carrier, Motorola has done something completely different from what it has offered in the past. The product working on all carriers however, does not come cheap. Other than that fact, the Moto X Pure Edition also features other hidden features that you probably didn’t know about.

  1. Moto X Pure Edition works on and no carriers. Though Motorola’s previous release Nexus 6 came with a multi-band LTE, the Moto X Pure Edition is said to work on networks such as WCDMA, GSM/EDGE, all bands of 4G LTE, UMTS GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz), LTE among other networks in the United States.
  2. An Outstanding 21 mega pixel camera with a front 5 mega pixel camera with LED flash. Android cameras are not known for the best flash features but the Moto X Pure Edition is pretty impressive. The flash ruptures giving the camera enough time to get the full exposure to take an image with awesome quality.
  3. Moto X Pure Edition is customized with a standard Bamboo inlay. A move to design more wooden backed X models, the Motorola company seems to have made the Bamboo a standard for its Moto X models. Customers who are not keen to choose the standard bamboo inlay model, the device will also be customized with rubber, leather, metallic veneers among other choices.
  4. The handset features a multi-processor. Moto X Pure Edition has been complemented by a Motorola Computing System which runs on the Qualcomm processor. One of the most notable benefits of having the Motorola Computing System is the fact that is accompanies additional processors which consist of Contextual Computing and Natural Language Processors.
  5. Not exactly waterproof but the handset can withstand water splashes. The Moto X Pure Edition is built with an advanced nano-coating technology which gives its water repellant feature. This technology only goes as far as protecting the device from water spills/ splashes and even light rain. This is not to be confused with the Moto G’s waterproof characteristic, submersion of the handset in water may cause damage.
  6. Motorola’s recent Moto X models and more notable the last two Moto X Pure Edition’s predecessors have all factored a non-removable battery. Though this is not pleasing, the good thing is that the Motorola device’s battery comes in a huge 300mAh capacity and is powered by Qualcomm’s Turbo Charge.
  7. The Moto X Pure Edition along is available in 16, 32 and 64 GB built in memory and attributes a MicroSD support which is expandable up to 128GB. The SD cards do not however come with the purchase of the device.

Though the Moto X Pure Edition is more expensive, within reason, compared to preceding Moto X models, it seems to be worth the purchase if its great specifications are anything to go by.
