Immediately after the new Moto X was unveiled, Motorola had introduced a special version called the Moto X Pure Edition. What makes the Pure Edition different from other Moto X versions, like the AT&T model for example, is that it offers LTE bands 2, 4, and 17 (the AT&T model offers LTE bands 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 17).
Fortunately for those who prefer the Pure Edition, the difference in LTE bands is about to be eliminated. Motorola has announced through its website forums that the company is currently working on enabling the LTE bands 3, 5, and 7 for the Moto X Pure Edition.
What will adding LTE bands 3, 5,and 7 do for users? Well, it will definitely increase their ability to roam overseas, which is as expected from an unlocked device.
They are planning to implement this via a software update. As of this writing, Motorola has not provided any details yet regarding when the update will be made available to users.
Because the Pure Edition is a GSM unlocked version, there is a good possibility that it can be used on a wider range of networks, compared to the AT&T model. That is why it seems odd that the Pure Edition only supports a limited number of LTE bands.
Still, the Moto X Pure Edition is expected to ship about 16 days after it has been ordered. Future owners are undoubtedly hoping that Motorola can deploy the software update before their orders arrive, or immediately after.
The Moto X features a 5.2-inch AMOLED display screen, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2.5 GigaHertz Snapdragon 801 processor, and 2300 mAh battery. The device runs on Android 4.4 KitKat.
