Motorola to manufacture the second batch of Moto X Play in India

By September 15th, 2015 AT 4:39 PM

After unveiling its much-awaited smartphone, the Moto X Play in India, Motorola has revealed its plan to manufacture the forthcoming batch of the device in India.


In August, Motorola and Lenovo started manufacturing devices in India at the Sriperambudur plant located in Chennai, in collaboration with a contract manufacturer Flextronics. Initially, Motorola had plans only to manufacture the Moto E in India, but its new strategy to manufacture Moto X Play in India sounds sweet. On the other hand, Lenovo is sticking to its initial plan only to manufacture the K3 Note in India. Both the companies have plans to manufacture around 6 million handsets in India within the present financial year.

The Moto X Play event had much more in store for the company to reveal. The company’s India head, Amit Boni announced at the event that Motorola has sold whopping 5.6 million smartphones in India via Flipkart. Although the company seems pretty much happy with its online model but it is also working on strengthening its offline coverage and is trying to rope in offline partners to sell its devices.

Motorola launched the Moto X Play in India yesterday at a price tag of Rs. 18,499 for the 16GB variant, and Rs. 19,999 for the 32GB variant. It also has plans to announced the Moto X Style in India soon.

Great news. India should provide the best labour for Motorola and help it become the top selling smartphone co. in emerging markets and possibly the world.


Hope this one will have LTE 2300MHZ (Band 40)support. Current one not support band 40
