Motorola still isn’t going to make its Moto Maker tool available for India anytime soon if ever, but it plans to offer two different premium Moto X options at launch anyway, namely bamboo and leather. The phone will also be available in normal black and we might see other choices surface in the future, but these look to be final at launch.
The second generation Motorola Moto X has already gone up for pre-order in various locations around the globe and it will reach India by the end of this month. Like its precursor, the new flagship will also be exclusive to Flipkart where the second generation Moto G is already available.
The e-retailer has already put up listings for the aforementioned Moto X variants, but the price is still under wraps. Nevertheless, we expect the phone to retail at around Rs 32000 to Rs 35000. This would make it one of the cheapest flagships.
While the original Moto X fell short where specs were concerned, the latest model is at par with the competition. The phone offers a 5.2-inch 1080p OLED display with Gorilla Glass 3 and a 2.5GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 chipset. Memory provisions remain the same, but the cameras have been improved to 2MP front and 13MP rear.
A quick look at the new Moto X specs:
– OS: Android 4.4.4 KitKat
– Chipset: 2.5GHz quad core Snapdragon 801
– Memory: 2GB RAM, 16GB, 32GB storage
