Motorola at present provides a couple of totally different variations of its new Moto X: a GSM unlocked “Pure Edition,” an AT&T mannequin and a Verizon variant. Interestingly, the shortage of branding on the Pure Edition isn’t the one factor that differentiates it from the AT&T mannequin, as Motorola’s specs listing exhibits that the Pure Edition solely consists of LTE bands 2, 4 and 17, whereas AT&T’s mannequin gives LTE bands 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 17. Luckily for these people within the Pure Edition, that’s distinction goes to disappear.
In response to this LTE band query in Motorola’s official boards, boards supervisor Matt has revealed that Motorola is working to allow LTE bands 3, 5 and 7 on the Moto X Pure Edition. This support will probably be added by means of a software program update, however Matt doesn’t have any info on when that update will exit to customers.
Since the Pure Edition Moto X is an unlocked mannequin that’s possible to be used on a a lot wider vary of networks — together with AT&T — than the AT&T-branded mannequin, it appears type of unusual that the Pure Edition helps fewer LTE bands than the AT&T-branded unit. The Moto X Pure Edition continues to be estimated to ship sixteen days after putting an order, so hopefully Motorola can ship this update earlier than then or shortly thereafter.
