One of the more surprising aspects of Motorola’s Moto X launch this week was that the company decided to sell a smartphone with mid-level specs at a high-end price. Motorola says that users who don’t want to pay $200 for Moto X don’t need to worry, however, because the company plans on releasing a cheaper version of the device as well. CNET reports that Motorola this week revealed that it will release a low-cost version of its new flagship device that’s tailored specifically for prepaid carriers and consumers in emerging markets later this year. Motorola Mobility CEO Dennis Woodside told CNET that the company’s goal is to give more people “access to affordable smartphones” that don’t scrimp on quality, since “the experience of devices you can get for less than $200 is subpar right now.”
