Moto X Force pops up on Amazon India ahead of schedule

Motorola Moto X Force

Motorola’s standard practice of releasing new phones only via Flipkart may be ending soon with the launch of the Moto X Force in India. The handset has been spotted on Amazon ahead of its unveiling on February 1, hinting that the device may be sold through multiple channels instead of being restricted to one.

Unfortunately, the premature listing does not have any price or availability details of the Motorola Moto X Force. To recollect, the brand began vending its products outside of Flipkart in September last year. It had expanded to e-commerce sites Amazon and Snapdeal. It also began selling its offerings offline via distribution partner Brightstar and Airtel outlets.

Going back to the Moto X Force, the company has been teasing the smartphone via its Indian social media handles for a few weeks now. The posts focus on the ruggedness of the device, comparing it to flagship phones by the likes of Apple and Samsung. The manufacturer is touting it as the first handset in the world to feature a shatterproof display.

A neat summary of the main specs of the Motorola Moto X Force:

– OS: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
– Display: 5.4-inch AMOLED, 2560 x 1440 pixels
– Memory: 32GB/64GB, expandable till 128GB
– RAM: 3GB
– Processor: 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810
– GPU: Adreno 430
– Cameras: 21MP rear, 5MP front
– Battery: 3760mAh
– Size: 149.8 x 78 x 7.6mm

Motorola has equipped the screen of the smartphone with its ShatterShield technology to make this possible. It consists of 5 layers namely an aluminum chassis, two touchscreen panels, an AMOLED display and an interior and exterior protective lens. The brand has also added an extra level of protection through water-repellant nano-coating.
