After initially debuting on AT&T last month, the Moto X will be available on Sprint’s network starting Sept. 6. While the Moto X typically costs $199.99 with a two-year carrier contract, Sprint promises to slash its price to $99.99 for new users. So, existing Sprint customers are out of luck.
The Moto Maker studio, which lets you design your Moto X by choosing different colors for the back, front and accents, is still exclusive to AT&T. Sprint promises that this feature will roll out within the coming months, but for now Moto X buyers will have to settle for white or black.
The Moto X is Motorola’s first major product launch since Google purchased the company’s mobile division in 2011. The 4.7-inch Android handset runs on Motorola’s X8 mobile computing chipset and comes with a dedicated processor for natural language, which means it can understand your commands better than most other mobile devices. This feature has since rolled out to other newer Motorola smartphones such as its new line of Verizon-exclusive Droids.
The Moto X is also currently available on Verizon and AT&T for $199.99 on a two-year contract. The news comes just after Sprint expanded its LTE coverage to New York earlier this summer, marking more than 110 markets throughout the United States.
