Earlier in the day, Motorola revealed that the Moto G will go on sale starting tomorrow i.e. February 6 by midnight. This also marks the entry of Motorola in the Indian market again in a grand way.
Now GizBot has got to know that Motorola will likely to announce its current Android flagship phone, the Moto X for Indian consumers in the first half of 2014.
GizBot has been informed by a source over at Motorola India, who wishes to stay anonymous, that the company has plans to reveal the Moto X in India around June 2014. "Though, it would be too early to comment upon exact launch date," he further added.
Meanwhile, we also got to know that Motorola could possibly reveal the next-generation Moto X successor in the month of September. Therefore, it does make sense if Motorola Moto X goes official in India around June 2014.
When we asked about the retail price of Moto X, the source clearly told that Motorola will position Moto X against Samsung Galaxy S4 in Indian market. The 16GB of Moto X could be priced somewhere around Rs. 25,000, when it lands in India. The executive, however, was uncertain whether Motorola would offer online customization tool for the Moto X in India or not.
For those who are not aware, Motorola first announced the Moto X in August 2013. Originally, Motorola announced that Moto X might not be made available outside of North America. However, in January 2014, the company had announced that the Moto X would be made available in key European countries, including the U.K.
Motorola Moto X has been seen as a competitor to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One. The 4.7-inch 720p HD smartphone comes stuffed with a Motorola's own' X8 Mobile Computing System', backed by 2GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of non-expandable internal storage. The Moto X runs Android 4.4.2 Kitkat of the box.
Alongside the Moto X, Motorola also announced online customization service called Moto Maker, which allows a user to fully customize the phone (barring its internal hardware). Though, the 'Moto Maker' customization option is limited to US consumers. Moto X responds to voice commands without needing to the touch the display.
