The US got the Moto X, with its snazzy custom options and attractive feature set, and now the rest of the world (though also including the US again) is set to receive the Moto G, a more affordable spin on the Moto X, making a few trade-offs but still coming in as a perfectly solid handset. And that’s the way it’s seemed things are likely to go, but now we’re hearing about the possibility of the Moto X itself starting to spread its footprint a little, and become available in additional markets.
TechRadar had the chance to speak with Motorola’s Marcus Frost at the recent Moto G event and came away from the conversation with the impression that the Moto X might be coming to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa at some point. The site points to Frost’s comment that “the reception of Moto X has been fantastic and we’re continuously perusing opportunities in the EMEA region, so really watch this space.”
Granted, we weren’t there to get the full context, but the quotes we’re seeing have us less than fully convinced that the Moto X is planning a European tour. Motorola’s comments are just the right sort of vague to leave that door open, while also making it possible that the company’s talking about another Moto-X-caliber flagship.
Still – it’s intriguing. Maybe Motorola will wait and see how the Moto G is received before making any decision.
