Motorola Moto X to Hit UK Stores on February 1st

By Gerald Lynch on at

Motorola's flagship Moto X smartphone looked for a while there to be destined to live out its days only in the States, especially after the international launch of the Moto G plugging the gaps for a Motorola phone in other territories.

But it's been announced that the Moto X will indeed be coming to UK stores at the start of next month, landing at retailers from February 1st for the SIM-free price of £380.

The phone is pretty much a spec-for-spec match for its US counterpart, with a 4.7-inch 720p display and stock Android onboard. The widely praised voice activated Google Now features will carry over intact too, along with the 10MP rear camera and water resistant Gorilla Glass display coating. However, the US's extensive casing customisation options won't be available, it seems. [Motorola]
