Motorola DVX, likely cheaper version of the Moto X, shows up at the FCC

One of the major complaints about the Moto X was its price point, given the device’s decidedly mid-range specs.

Motorola seems aware of this, but rather than lowering the price of the existing Moto X, the company appears to be coming out with a cheaper version, called the DVX.

Thanks to the FCC, we are now able to see what the cheaper Moto X will look like. While the two phones look very similar at first glance, the DVX appears to be a mirror image of its big brother. The front-facing camera and sensor cluster have swapped sides, and on the back, the speaker grille jumps to the left side of the camera instead of the right.

It also looks like the earpiece is wider on the DVX. The filing, which was first spotted by reddit user danrant, is for a GSM version of the device. There is also a filing for a Sprint-compatible CDMA version that is undoubtedly headed for one of the company’s many low-cost Mobile Virtual Network Operators (i.e., Boost, Cricket, Virgin Mobile).
