Hello,
I would like to know if the Moto X product for the U.S. is different from that product to the EU, in particular I wanted to know if the LTE radio module is different since the LTE frequencies USA and EU are different ...
Or is it just a matter of setting sw?
I know there are different models...

If I buy a Moto X 32GB Dev Edition, with bootloadesr unlocked, can i change the settings for LTE frequencies so that they work even in EU?



thanks

The internal hardware is different, you can't change the bands a model supports.

Hah, no. However Motorola has received different FCC approvals for each variation of the phone(XT1053, XT1058 etc) because each one has different hardware for the radio. Tear downs of the phones with internal pictures confirm there are different transceivers and power amplifiers installed into each version.
Motorola has achieved an insanely good performance level out of the radio portion of the Moto X specifically because of a design choices like this - each version of the phone is highly optimized to work on the bands it supports.
