In case you were wondering, the low-cost version of the Moto X indeed does exist and moreover, could be released this very month. The first hint that Motorola is working on a budget version of its latest offering appeared last month and now the device showed up at the FCC. According to the rumors, the phone called the Motorola DVX will resemble the Moto X in terms of design and hardware, but will be priced much lower. As a Chinese source reports, the Motorola DVX might cost between 1200 and 1500 yuan, which would be about $195 to $245.
Motorola DVX assembled in China…
Is there any catch? Not really, from what we can tell. The thing is that the original Moto X was manufactured in the US, while the Motorola DVX would be assembled in an overseas plant. Add to this slightly slimmed down specs and you get a decent device at an affordable price. The fact that the phone bears a close resemblance to the Moto X in many aspects could be an important factor in attracting customers.
The Motorola DVX is rumored to sport a 4.5-inch LCD display, however, don’t expect a Super AMOLED screen. The phone is allegedly powered by X8 computing system with dual-core Snapdragon chip and a quad-core GPU. The device will have a removable back plate and will be compatible with GSM and WCDMA networks, with no LTE support, though.
Unfortunately, the FCC documentation does not mention NFC either. The US-bound model will most likely arrive without dual-SIM support, which is favored in Asian and European markets. The Motorola DVX could be launched with XT1032, XT1033, and XT1035 model numbers.
