When are we finally going to get the skinny on lower-cost version of the Motorola Moto X we’ve heard rumored for so long, the Motorola DVX? Last time we were talking about the handset, it sounded like a mid-September launch could have been possible, but that clearly hasn’t actually happened. Back at the beginning of the month, we saw the FCC publish the test documentation for the XT1032, XT1033, and XT1035 – the three carrier variants of the DVX of which we’re aware – but they didn’t offer anything too interesting. However, Motorola has submitted some follow-up docs to that initial FCC volley, and the second wave manages to give us a look at a fully-assembled DVX.
Motorola filed these follow-up docs a little while back, but as we already saw the main paperwork, their arrival went relatively unnoticed. That is, until Reddit swarmed around the publication yesterday, extracting the images you see above. We went back to the FCC docs, and while this new paperwork is certainly present, it looks like the FCC already scrubbed them of the images – much like it did after those Nexus 5 pics in G2 docs started getting attention. Luckily, we have this copy from before anything was taken down.
As we’ve seen before from component shots, the DVX superficially resembles the Moto X, but with a repositioned speaker grille and front-facing camera. It may sell for as little as $200 when the handset finally launches, though a formal price has yet to be confirmed.
