What's the diff? SKU: 852468531 and SKU: 852453008

    They APPEAR to be the same phone. One lists the model # while the other does not. The less expensive one even has twice as much ROM. I don't see any big differences to warrant the difference in price. Maybe one can't be upgraded? Place of manufacture? One is unlocked for global? Anyone know, please help. Thanks!

    Strange indeed that SKU: 852453008 is  $390.49 and only has half the ROM (32GB) that SKU: 852468531 has, and yet it is $130 dearer!

    After doing a little research, I think I may have an answer. It seems the 64GB ROM version SKU 852468531, is the Chinese model (XT1635-03) and just for the China market; although it is unlocked for Worldwide use. In reading other websites, it also appears that it does not support OTA and that you are stuck with the OS it comes with (Android 6). The 32GB ROM version is the US model (XT 1635-01), supports OTA, Android Pay and other Western apps, and I am almost positive it will upgrade to Android 7. I use darkened lettering because I am not 100% sure.
