Motorola launching preorders for Moto X Pure Edition tomorrow

Motorola's launching preorders for its flagship Moto X Pure Edition beginning tomorrow. A just-posted tweet reveals that this first preorder wave will be open to US customers only; the new flagship Moto X is known as the Moto X Style elsewhere in the world.

A previous (and since deleted) tweet suggested preorders would open up on September 3rd, but it seems Motorola is ready to go a day earlier. The Moto X Pure Edition supports all major wireless carriers in the United States and starts at $399. That price can go up depending on Moto Maker customizations and the amount of storage you want; keep in mind the new Moto X supports microSD cards up to 128GB in size.

Motorola isn't yet saying when phones will begin shipping after preorders begin, but we imagine it won't be terribly long after. The company has pledged timely Android updates for the Pure Edition, which is Motorola's largest Moto X yet with a 5.7-inch display. Will the camera live up to Moto's big claims? Stay tuned.
