Motorola is finally feeling the heat, Moto X receives new price cut in India

With Chinese OEMs launching flagship-class devices under Rs 25000, Motorola’s new Moto X is facing some serious competition in India. The solution to this is a simple price cut which is precisely what the Lenovo-owned company has done and the new amounts do make the phone all the more desirable.

The base model of the Motorola Moto X 2014 which has 16GB of storage and a plastic rear panel is tagged at Rs 26999, while the versions with leather or bamboo finishes will cost an additional Rs 2000, at Rs 29999. And for the 32GB plastic variant, a Rs 28999 retail tag has been affixed to it.

Sadly, there’s still no option to get the higher capacity model with the premium finishes as yet. The revised retail tags will surely help attract more customers, but it might not make that big of a difference as the competition is offering similar hardware for much cheaper.

Also, the device in question does have its downsides like mediocre battery life through the 2300mAh power pack and non-expandable storage. Then again, the new Moto X is powered by Lollipop with the latest Android 5.1 updated slated to arrive soon.
