Motorola announced a couple of devices around two weeks back at the end of July. It includes the Moto X Pure Edition, which is basically the US variant of Moto X Style, might be launching in USA on September 3.
Motorola had originally announced that the device will go on sale around September in Europe, Latin America and North America. However, we did not know the exact date. Couple of days back, the official Twitter account of Motorola had tweeted, “On Sep 3, you’ll see what real love is like. Choose #MotoX for a more powerful connection.” Soon after, the tweet was deleted but you can check out the screenshot captured by Android Central. So, it is remotely possible the date might get postponed but should see it launch on September 3. The Moto X Pure Edition will be customizable via Moto Maker like the previous editions. The Moto G 3rd Gen is already on sale in USA. Lets take a quick look at the specifications.
