Motorola DVX makes FCC appearance, as possible pricing/launch details emerge


We’ve been kicking around the name Motorola DVX for a while now, first hearing about it back in June as the name for hardware that might be a lower-cost version of the Moto X. Since then, we’ve heard a few details about the handset, such as unlike how the Moto X’s custom backplates are factory-set, the DVX might allow the user to pop them out at his or her convenience. Today we find a whole lot of new DVX info to sort through, including FCC documentation and some early retailer spottings.

The FCC just published the certification docs for Motorola models XT1032, XT1033, and XT1035, noting them all as regional variants of the same hardware. While there’s nothing in the docs themselves that screams “DVX” or even “Moto X,” those model numbers are already appearing in some retailer databases, where they’re plainly labeled as the DVX.

For instance, one UK-based retailer appears to be expecting both 8GB and 16GB versions of the XT1032. Prices work out (pre-tax) to the equivalents of around $180 and $200, respectively, definitely fitting with the designation of a budget handset.

And while we’ve yet to hear any official announcement, that same retailer expects to get stock of these models on September 16. Is that wishful thinking, a placeholder date, or could we really have another launch right around the corner?
