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.

Exclusive: Moto X India Release Date Pegged for June 2014

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.
