Motorola has announced a reduction in the price of unlocked Moto X smartphone in the United States on Wednesday. The smartphone with 16GB of storage will now be sold for just $399 without any contract.
Unlike the recent $349 promotion, the latest price-drop is permanent and will continue until the company discontinues the phone or pushes another price-cut.
“We’ve been hearing a lot recently from people who want a new premium smartphone at a reasonable price without having to wait for a contract upgrade. That came through especially loud and clear during our holiday flash sales,” Motorola’s Rick Osterloh noted in a blog post.
The consumers can also use Motorola’s zero-interest EMI scheme to grab Moto X.
