Motorola’s Moto X smartphone is going up for pre-order on Tuesday

Earlier this month, Motorola officially announced the new Moto X, its latest flagship smartphone, offering enhanced specs and a slew of customizable options. But when is it actually availble for sale? Motorola has just shed some light on this question. From Tuesday September 16, pre-orders will open in the US for the Moto X (AT&T and Pure Edition), as well as the Moto Hint and turbo charger accessories. In related news, the Moto 360 smartwatch will be back in stock the same day in the US too.

Motorola had been pretty silent on when it would start accepting money for the new products it introduced earlier this month, but now we have some answers: the Her-like Hint along with two versions of the new Moto X — the AT&T model and the Pure Edition — will go on pre-order this Tuesday, September 16th at noon ET. Additionally, the Turbo Charger, an accessory that promises 8 hours of battery life in 15 minutes, will go on sale for $34.99. Motorola isn’t saying when any of these will ship, but that dates will be provided at checkout (the X is expected this month, while the Hint is coming later in the year). Finally, Motorola will be replenishing stock of its Moto 360 smartwatch, which went missing mere minutes after first going on sale on September 5th. As before, the company’s warning that stock will be limited — so if you want one, act fast on Tuesday.
