Online retailer Flipkart had teased an image which in all probability looks like a new Motorola smartphone launch in India soon. The teaser image did not reveal the name of the smartphone, though it does suggest that it might be a device crammed with high-end specs. While, Flipkart had tweeted the teaser describing it only as a ‘Moto Beast', recently we discovered the Moto Turbo is available on Flipkart for Rs. 41,999
In addition, the teaser image also says "Get Your Life Turbocharged. Accelerate performance, Ballistic Nylon fairing, and revving in soon." The Moto Maxx is a global variant of the Droid Turbo that comes with a unique back panel which Motorola calls the ‘Ballistic Nylon'.
In addition to the unique back panel, the smartphone also packs a massive 3,900 mAh battery, which is compatible with Motorola's turbo charger and is claimed to provide 8 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging. The phone's contextual awareness is something new. While driving to work, the phone will quiet the notifications and give you directions instead.
Other specs include a 5.2-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) display with a pixel density of 565ppi, and is powered by a 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM. While on the software front, it runs on Android KitKat, which has been updated to Lollipop.

In terms of optics, the smartphone has a 21-megapixel rear autofocus camera with f/2.0 aperture and dual-LED flash, 2-megapixel front camera. The smartphone comes with a massive 64GB internal storage and includes connectivity options LTE support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0.
While this handset is sure to cost more in India than the OnePlus One and the Xiaomi Mi 4, the Moto Maxx does have some features not seen in the other two phones. That could help Motorola compete in India on the handset's feature set rather than price.
