The Moto X4 is being added to Amazon's Prime Exclusive lineup later today, Motorola Mobility announced on Wednesday. Consumers in the United States will hence be able to purchase the new Android smartphone for $329.99, $70 less than its regular price. The offer will officially go live at 10 PM PT today, or 1 AM ET tomorrow, the Lenovo-owned phone maker confirmed. As is usually the case with Prime Exclusive devices, the Moto X4 comes at a discount in exchange for your permission to serve you with Amazon ads through its lock screen. All promotions pushed to your device by the Seattle, Washington-based retailer are customized in accordance with your personal preferences and should be of interest to you, so if seeing such offerings on your lock screen on a regular basis isn't something that you would mind, you're able to save 17.5 percent on your Moto X4 purchase by ordering the device from Amazon.
The Prime Exclusive Moto X4 will be offered in Sterling Blue and Super Black, with Motorola saying that both variants will start shipping to customers next Thursday, October 26th. The week-long pre-order period doesn't come with any extra incentives so if your paycheck won't be here until next month, you'll still be able to purchase the Moto X4 for the same price through the Prime Exclusive program.
