Taking one more step towards making the Moto Maker program a global affair, Lenovo-owned Motorola has launched the service in China for the Moto X now. This will allow patrons from the country to order their devices online, and get them customized according to their liking.
It will work just like it works in the US and other nations where it’s available right now. Users will need to visit the Moto Maker website and choose the surfaces, colors, accents, engravings and other aspects of their Moto X smartphone.
While even the Moto 360 is part of the Moto Maker program in other countries, Motorola is still to start selling the Android Wear smartwatch in China on its own. The second-gen Moto X can be purchased at 2699 RMB (around $435 or Rs 27800) normally, but the customized model starts at 2799 RMB (around $450 or Rs 28800).
In addition, Motorola has also started selling its Moto G and Moto X Pro smartphones in China through its online store. In case you’re wondering what the latter device is, it’s nothing but a re-branded version of the Nexus 6.
Here’s a quick glance the specs of the Moto X:
– Display: 5.2-inch AMOLED, 1080p full HD
– CPU: 2.5GHz quad core Snapdragon 801
– GPU: Adreno 330
– OS: Android 4.4 KitKat (upgraded to 5.1 Lollipop)
– Memory: 2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB/64GB storage (not expandable)
– Camera: 13MP rear, 2MP front
– Weight: 144gms
– Size: 140.8mm x 72.4mm x 10mm
– Battery: 2300mAh
At the moment, there seem to be no details on where the Moto Maker program is headed next, but considering Motorola’s large presence in India it won’t be foolish to believe that it could arrive in the country soon. Those in China can head over to the company’s official site to access the customization options.
