Moto X to go on sale tomorrow starting Rs 23,999

Motorola has been off to a flyer after launching the Moto G in India in its second stint in the country. The device has been getting simply amazing volumes and this has prompted the company to bring the Moto X to India as well. It will go on sale exclusively on Flipkart.com at a price of Rs 23,999 for the regular 16GB variant and Rs 25,999 for wooden back 16GB variant. Only the 16GB variant is coming to India.

Let us take a look at its specifications:

  • 4.7 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels
  • 1.7Ghz dual core Snapdragon S4 Pro is present under the hood
  • 2GB RAM
  • It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Internal storage capacity stands at 16GB which is non-expandable
  • 10MP Clear Pixel camera at the rear which is joined in by a 2MP front facing camera
  • Connectivity features are 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with GLONASS and NFC
  • 22oo mAh battery unit
  • Rs 23,999

It will be available in 5 colour option and two wooden back colour options. Flipkart will launch the device with a slew of offers which include Rs 1000 cashback on EMI plan, 70 percent off on cases and 10 lucky customers will get the device for free. Moto X has an amazing set of specifications albeit for a sub Rs 20,000 device.

At this price point, it would venture into the territory of the Nexus 4, which despite being more than an year old still has a better set of specs. And just in case you were wondering if it will get the customisations it became popular for, we are sorry to say but they are not coming to India. Let us see how the consumers take on the new device.

*Agreed that the moto x does not come with LTE support but hey a lot of devices dont come with LTE support and disregarding a handset just because it does not have LTE doesnt make much sense. *I know that having the ability to download as well as surf at speeds 25MBPs+ on LTE might sound exciting to you but these speeds come at the sacrifice of the battery.Try performing a paticular task on 2G and then perform the same task on 3G and you would notice a huge difference in the battery consumption.3G would end up eating a lot… Read more »

*Yes your 100% right and in a way its my fault cos I always keep forgetting that I am at a telecom dominated website and not a tech dominated website,so having the latest and greatest in telecom matters more than tech. *Anyhow all I wanted to say is that the smartphone is really good and some of its features are worth praising like Active Display:In normal smartphones when a notification comes you have to illuminate the screen of your smartphone and have a look at the notifictaion whereas on moto x every time a notification comes,a paticular small part of… Read more »

@ all those who think this phone is not good because of dual-core processor:
This phone has a dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHZ which, coupled with 2GB RAM, would perform much better in real world situations than Mediatek quad-cores which run at 1.2GHZ (with 1GB RAM).

*Bro I can give it to you in writing that the moto x works smooother than the most of the quad core smartphones out there. *See Android is only optimised to work with dual core processors.So even if you have a quad core processor in your smartphone only 2 of the 4 cores will be utilised “efficiently”.Although only 2 cores are being used but power is being given to all 4 cores in the case of a quad core processor.So from 4 cores if only 2 cores are being used then power given to the remaining 2 cores is being… Read more »

Hi,

I totally agree with you.

I dont know why people argue about number of core.

If the OS is properly optimized for hardware, number of core does not matter. number of cores matters only with Chinese android phones. Which they use half baked software, full of bugs…

Iphone, Blackberry 10 and Moto X is all about software experience. Which are much better optimized devices.

Even same applicable for Cam as well, Iphone and blackberry 8MP cam can take better pics than MMX/ Karbonn 16MP cams….

Its all about QUALITY OF HARDWARE with OPTIMIZED software….NOT QUANTITY of HARDWARE WITH HALF COOKED SOFTWARE…….

*+1 buddy people have become so blinded by specs that they hardly take into consideration software while buying a handset these days. *the jump from single core to dual core was significant because android was optimised for dual core and ever since then people have had a perception that more cores mean more power but thats not true.People should actually be appreciating motorola for the moto x because its one of the very few smartphones concentrating on software and motorola has added features to moto s that are actually useful in daily lives and not like samsung whose so called… Read more »
