Motorola has officially announced a 64GB variant of its flagship smartphone, the Moto X, in the US. Carrying a price tag of $449 (Rs. 26,500 approximately), the phone costs $100 (Rs. 5,900) more than its 16GB counterpart.
Interestingly, the company has also launched a ‘try then buy’ program for the Moto X, which entitles customers to try the smartphone for two weeks before making a purchase, Android Central reports.
The Moto X (16GB) was launched in India at Rs. 23,999 in March. The Moto X launch came a few weeks after the successful launch of the budget smartphone Moto G (Review | Pictures) in the country, also via Flipkart.
The Moto X, a customisable Android smartphone, was launched in August last year and was initially available in US only. The smartphone natively ran Android 4.2 Jelly Bean; however Motorola rolled out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for it in November last year, and the Android 4.4.3 KitKat update is also said to be now rolling out for the smartphone.
The Moto X features a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels. It is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960Pro Snapdragon processor along with 2GB of RAM. The storage is non-expandable. It also sports a 10-megapixel rear camera accompanied by an LED flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
The highlight of the Moto X is its software features like Active Display, Touchless Control, Quick Capture Camera, and customisability.
There is no word yet on whether, and indeed if, the 64GB Moto X will be launched in India.
