A leaked photo showing what looks like a Republic Wireless timeline of milestones was posted today by tech news site Android Police. The October part of the timeline contains a cryptic line reading:
"Announce DVX availability date"
The photo was discovered on a Flickr page belonging to Bandwith.com (Republic's parent company) by someone who shared it with Android Police.
Android Police believes that "DVX" refers to the Motorola DVX, an unreleased lower priced version of the Moto X targeted at developing markets and prepaid customers.
The DVX is expected to be priced at $200 or less, unlocked and off contract. Based on an FCC filing we know that the DVX in GSM guise doesn't have LTE and but does support quad band (850, 900, 1900, 2100 Mhz) 21.1 Mbps HSPA+ 4G. Republic uses Sprint's CDMA network so today's leak suggests the existence of a CDMA version of the DVX.
It also reportedly sports brightly colored interchangeable back covers, a 480 x 800 px screen and a choice of 8GB or 16GB of internal storage.
