Motorola unveils shatterproof Moto X Force in India

Motorola Moto X Force

The Motorola Moto X Force is finally here after weeks of promotions and an early leak on Amazon India. The company has confirmed earlier rumors which had suggested that it was breaking free of its Flipkart-exclusive system by making the phone available not only via the 2 mentioned sites, but also through offline stores like Spice and Croma.

Another factor which sets the Motorola Moto X Force apart is its high asking price. The 32GB model will put interested buyers back by Rs 49999, while the 64GB one is set to burn a Rs 53999-sized hole in their pocket. The company has so far built its success in India on providing top-notch specs at an affordable cost.

Motorola is clearly looking to compete with the likes of the Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S6. It made this intention clear when it ran teasers comparing the shatterproof display of the new handset with the flagship offerings of other companies. It remains to be seen if this strategy will convince Indian consumers to pay a premium for a ShatterShield-fortified screen.

Have a look at the specifications of the Motorola Moto X Force:
