Smaller, more affordable Moto X variant passes through the FCC


Rumors of a lower-cost Moto X variant have been around for a while, but if recent FCC documentations are to be believed, the device is not too far away from being released (via Android Police). A recent revised Permissive Change filing with the FCC has revealed a couple of photos of the device, which looks nearly identical to the Moto X. The phone is referred to as the Motorola DVX and appears to have a slightly smaller screen than the Moto X, coming in between 4.3-inches and 4.5-inches.

The FCC documents show the DVX as being compatible with GSM 850/1900 bands, meaning that it lacks LTE and will work only with AT&T here in the states. 

In terms of features, the documents mention “Voice Commands” and “Talking Phone,” suggesting that Motorola’s always-on features are present.

Earlier rumors suggested that the DVX will be priced below $200 unsubsidized. It’s worth noting that none of Motorola’s newest flagships have been available outside of the western hemisphere, so it’s possible that the DVX will be mainly prominent in other countries.
