Amazon Has The Moto X Pure Edition Up For Pre-Order If You Don't Want To Customize It

Earlier today, Motorola opened pre-orders for the 2015 Pure Edition Moto X. If you don't really care about Moto Maker or customization at all, then Amazon is the way to go - if you're a Prime member you'll get yours just a couple of days after release. It's slated to be released on the 9th of this month, so you'll most likely be one of the first to get your hands on Moto's newest flagship.

It's available in both 16GB and 32GB variants, with three color schemes for each: black, white, and white with a bamboo back. The plain color models (black and white) are both $399 for 16GB and $449 for 32GB, with the bamboo model coming it at $25 more.

The new Moto X is set to come out in a week or two, but the 2014 model is still a fine device. It's even more fine if you can get one for a mere $180, as you can today on eBay. This is the Verizon model of the phone (XT1096), but that means it's unlocked and should work fine on GSM carriers.

Motorola Details Plans To Patch The Stagefright Vulnerability For 2013 Phones And Later

Google and the various major Android device vendors and carriers are scrambling to patch the recently-discovered Stagefright exploit, a weakness in Android's multimedia processing that can allow remote access via a simple MMS message. Google has already begun patching Nexus devices, and Samsung is working its way through its extensive product range starting with flagships. Yesterday Motorola released its plans to update its phones.

So which devices will get the fix? Basically everything Motorola has made since 2013, including carrier variants and DROID models for Verizon in the US. Here's the full list:

  • Moto X Style (patched from launch)
  • Moto X Play (patched from launch)
  • Moto X (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
  • Moto X Pro
  • Moto Maxx/Turbo
  • Moto G (1st Gen, 2nd Gen, 3rd Gen)
  • Moto G with 4G LTE (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
  • Moto E (1st Gen, 2nd Gen)
  • Moto E with 4G LTE (2nd Gen)
  • DROID Turbo
  • DROID Ultra/Mini/Maxx

Some third-gen Moto G phones (released late last month) have been patched from launch, but others will need an over-the-air update.

This Year's Motorola Flagship Is The Moto X Style—5.7" Quad-HD Display, 3GB Of RAM, 21MP Camera, Pure Edition Support For All Major US Carriers, $399.99

You won't have to fumble around with remembering the year with the newest Moto X. Or should I say, Moto Xs. This time the company is introducing multiple versions, and each has a name that sets it apart from the crowd. One Moto X has style. Moto X Style.

The Moto X Style is an updated version of the 2014 Moto X, the device we expected from Motorola. The screen makes a predictable jump up to a 5.7-inch quad-HD display. It also makes the leap to a less predictable 21MP camera on the back of the device. A 5MP one resides on the front.

Courtesy of Android Peru on Facebook, we have some photos of what may just be the third generation Moto X. You guys get more excited about leaked gadget photos than you do about celebrity wardrobe malfunctions, so I'll let you check out the pics before I point out my observations.

Ok, here are the things that I spotted that may be new if this is indeed the Moto X 2015.

  • Front facing LED camera flash: Because — Selfies.
