Motorola's next-gen Moto X, which has become an intense subject of discussion, may now be released in an unlocked/unbranded/Bloatware-free variant.
According to a Verge report, the Moto X next-gen bloatware-free variant will be termed the 'Pure Edition', which means that the yet-to-be-released variant will not be stuffed with the various carrier-applications that conventional brand-specific (carrier-locked) smartphones come with.
The Verge report also states that the Moto X next-gen being a 'Pure variant' will not run Stock Android and instead, the normal OS would be tweaked to offer and support the stock-Android nature.
Once the 'Pure Edition' Moto X goes official, users should check out for the absence of a carrier-branding on the outer body of the handset unlike conventional carrier-branded smartphone units.
However, potential buyers of the 'Pure Edition Moto X' should keep in mind the fact that despite offering a 'Pure Android' experience, the smartphone will carry 'limited' Motorola-specific apps.
As of now, it is not known as to when Motorola will officially launch the next-gen 'Pure Android' Moto X variant. Motorola's official website lists the 'Pure Android' smartphone as coming soon.
