Moto X Destined for T-Mobile Stops by the FCC, Model Number XT1053


With previous info pointing towards a launch onto four of the five top carriers in America, a T-Mobile variant of the Moto X has made its way through the FCC rounding out the bunch. With model number XT1053, we now have the models for each version, pretty much confirmed for Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular and T-Mobile. 

Besides detailing the radio bands being deployed inside of the device, no other juicy info has been found inside these documents. Then again, what else do we need to know at this point? The device’s specs are not 100% confirmed yet, but they have been seen plenty of times, with the X’s unveiling set for next week in NYC.

For additional info on each variant, follow the links for which model number you want.

    I wonder if T-Mo will add this to their 0 down sale they’ve got going on.

  • Dillon Brown

    what happened to 1057 and 1058, are those for smaller carriers not mentioned here?

  • Kyle Wilkins

    I am probably going to get this device a month or two after release to see some reviews and such. I hope they leak or announce what this Moto X Hero thing is. I know you can’t wait forever but I don’t want to feel jipped if there is a better (even if it is slightly) coming down the pipe and released 1-3 months later.

    • Kamesen

      Not to mention the customizable options may not be available since day 1. If everyone jumps on the band wagon and gets the white or black one, waiting 1 month may make the difference to getting a corduroy backed phone…

  • kixofmyg0t

    I don’t know of a Motorola phone on T-Mo.

    Hmm, $30 Unlimited plan…$199 no contract Moto X.

    I might just dump Big Red

    • carlisimo

      Where’d you get the idea that it’d cost $199 without a contract?

      • Noel

        More like $299 for the 16GB and $349 for the 32GB model w/o a contract…think i saw that on another site. With all the optimization that will be done on this device even though a dual core…u might get a flawless user experience just like u will with a quad core 1080p device, and for about half the price of the quad cores. With good marketing blitz…this thing might take off like a rocket.

      It’s been a few years since they’ve had one. Will be good to see a Motorola device on T-Mobile again, especially a worthy one.

  • Dane Carpenter

    I was hoping there would be just one GSM variant. I was planning to buy a couple of these and get off of Verizon. If T-Mobile didn’t end up working out it would be easy for me to go to another gsm carrier. I guess I’ll have to wait for the Nexus 5.

    • lensgrabber

      Yeah this is a huge bummer. I was hoping for one device to rule them all. Maybe it’s just those will have carrier bloat and there will be a Play store that’s unlocked, bloat free, and ready to rock whatever carrier you are on.

  • Jon

    This will probably be my wife’s next phone. I’m gonna hold out and see if the next Nexus phone will be based on the LG G2. If so…it will be a hell of a phone. I’ve decided that if my phone is Note II size, I probably don’t need swap-able batteries, but on the smaller phones with smaller batteries, I need the ability to swap.

    Nexus 5…don’t dissapoint!

  • Cody Revels

    I just hope its through verizon and not the play store. I usually prefer play but i want to use the device payment plan. 😀 Also I have it performs as well as my old Nexus 4….with better battery lol.

  • I’m very curious what the wow factor for this phone will be. For instance, compared with the new Droids just announced. I’ve gone from the original Droid to the Galaxy Nexus, and this will almost certainly be my next phone. While it all looks pretty good I’m still hoping there’s something that hasn’t leaked that will now or socks off.

    • Justtyn Hutcheson

      It kind of looks like they are taking SmartActions and completely automating them based on learned usage and contextual awareness. Combined with the 4.3 feature of being able to wifi-locate at will, it could very very easily learn when you are doing certain things, and react accordingly, very similar to the patent that was granted to Apple earlier this week. If it can do that, remain smooth and buttery no matter what is thrown at it, push battery life to the absolute limit, AND be affordable for the masses, they will not be able to keep up with demand.

      • Kenton Douglas

        Yep … that patent 🙁

  • bboyairwreck

    Gah… I’m still not sure if i should jump ship to the Moto X or wait for the rumored Moto X hero device =S Cuz i’d still be willing to pay $100 more for even better specs. not that i don’t doubt Googles software optimizations in this one.

    • NemaCystX

      Well “Ghost” was rumored to be the low spec one

      Yeti and Sasquatch are unknown variants

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    This late? Better Late than never I guess…

  • T4rd

    Verizon’s model has the bigger number, so it must be the best version of the phone! =p

    I wonder if it has the bigger geebees?!

    • Or they were the last to say “yes” to it. 😛

      • aye_winchell

        At this point i don’t care, as long as they said yes 🙂

      • Andy Hall

        Or because it will have the biggest price tag!

        • michael arazan

          Could see everyone but verizon offering $350 for it, and Verizon will have it $200 with contract or $550-650 without, not to mention Verizon delaying the sale of the X because they want to push their Droid Brand, HTC one is still not for sale yet

      • Aaron

        Kellex, did you see the Android Community article about the Moto X build materials and MIMO 4G antennas? Gonna love me some awesome 4G signal reception.


      • Blue Sun

        Most likely the last to release it.

  • KleenDroid


    • Dominic Powell

      I was getting worried that tmobile would have gotten left out for second.

    • ruthefisher325

      my buddy’s aunt makes $60 every hour on the laptop. She has been out of a job for ten months but last month her pay was $19694 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Go to this web site and read more http://www.Pro67.com

  • Samvelavich

    I wouldnt be surprised if it was unlocked with LTE for every carrier.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Wouldn’t work with Sprint and Verizon. It’s a phone it needs CMDA Radios

        The Nexus 7 has dual radios for both verizons network and gsm networks in the US.. it IS possible.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Nexus 7 isn’t a phone. If you don’t have LTE Service you won’t have any service at all with a VZW LTE SIM on the N7

          • Jon

            But you can use VOIP app such as Groove IP.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            That really has nothing to do with what radios will be in the device.

        • Diablo81588

          It does not have CDMA radios, only LTE. It doesn’t work on Verizon 3g.

    • Pedro

      Unlikely, since VZW/Sprint models still need a CDMA radio.
      A worldwide unlocked GSM LTE would be pretty sweet, though.

    • Guest

      like the new Nexus 7? Probably
