Republic Wireless’ new smartphone will indeed be Motorola’s Moto X.

After reports and leaks that the new Google Motorola smartphone was coming to Republic, the Raleigh company confirmed the speculation with its official announcement of the phone, accompanied by a wider range of price plans that include two unlimited plans at less than $19 a month.

Republic’s hybrid wireless service operates on Wi-Fi and cellular networks. The privately held company can offer its service for such a low price because its phones use primarily use free and ubiquitous Wi-Fi, switching to Sprint’s cellular network only when Wi-Fi unavailable. The company launched its service last year on Motorola’s Defy XT phone through a $19 a month plan. Consumers had to purchase the phone Defy XT for $199.

Consumers will be able to purchase the Moto X for $299. The phone offers features such as touchless control, an active display and a feature called Motorola Assist. The Moto X can tell if the user is in a moving vehicle and automatically reads incoming text messages aloud or tells who is calling. It can also respond to with a text reply that lets people know that the user is driving.

Republic said it will make the Moto X available in November. The company is introducing new pricing plans that will also start in November. Consumers can pick:

  • Unlimited talk, text, and data, on Wi-Fi only for $5 per month
  • Unlimited talk and text on Wi-Fi and cellular, and unlimited data on Wi-Fi for $10 per month
  • Unlimited talk, text and data on Wi-Fi, plus 3G cellular for $25 per month
  • Unlimited talk, text and data on Wi-Fi, plus 4G cellular for $40 per month

Republic CEO David Morken said that the new pricing plans were developed after watching usage patterns over the last 20 months.

“One size doesn’t fit all in this market,” he said in a statement. “Some folks are around Wi-Fi most of the time, and use cellular data very rarely. We set out on a mission to create plans that will unlock even more savings for those individuals – on the phone and the monthly service.”

Republic customers can switch plans right on the phone or from their online account portal up to two times each month as their usage needs change. The company’s original $19 a month unlimited plan will still be available on the Motorola Defy XT.
