Late last month, Motorola said that the Moto X was headed to India and Australia within ‘next few weeks’. Now, Flipkart, which exclusively launched the Motorola Moto G in India, has confirmed that the ‘Moto X is coming soon’. The tweet also promises exciting launch day offers, similar to ones seen with the Moto G India launch in February.
While there is no official word from Flipkart on the exact launch date, NDTV Gadgets has learnt from its sources that the Moto X is likely to go on sale next week, starting 19 March.
Motorola launched the Moto X back in August last as an Android smartphone that users can customise via its website called Moto Maker. Flipkart confirmed in response to a query that users in India will not get a chance to customise their phone, and said the phone “will come with a fixed set of five colours & two wood variants.”
Moto X was launched in the US carrying a $579 (Rs. 35,000 approximately), but the price was recently slashed to $399 (Rs. 24,000 approximately). While a sub-Rs. 25,000 price tag in India would be ideal, it’s more likely that the phone will be priced around the Rs. 28,000 mark.
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. There is 16GB of inbuilt storage. It also sports a 10-megapixel rear camera accompanied by an LED flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
The phone original shipped with Android 4.2, but received the Android 4.4 KitKat update last year.
