Android fans and enthusiasts in India have been recently given the chance to purchase one of the most popular smartphones launched by Motorola in the last couple of months, the Moto G.The Moto G went on sale at Flipkart and will be exclusively available at this Indian retailer for the next two weeks. Basically, the launch of this smartphone marked Motorola’s entry on the Indian smartphone market, which it departed a long time ago.
In this regard, it appears that the US-based handset maker has big plans for Indian customers, as the Moto G is just the first Motorola smartphone that makes its debut in the country.
According to Gizbot, citing a source over at Motorola India who wishes to remain anonymous, Motorola will be releasing its most precious smartphone, the Moto X in the country in the coming months.
Although the anonymous source did not unveil the exact release date of the Motorola Moto X, it did say it would be launched around June 2014.
Obviously, it’s a bit too early to talk about an exact timing for the release of the Moto X in India, but we suspect more details will surface as we’re getting closer to summer.
Until then though, Indian customers can check out Motorola’s other smartphone, the Moto G, which is now available for Rs 12,499 ($200 / €150) outright for the 8GB version and Rs 13,999 ($225 / €165) for the 16GB model.
The Moto X will be more expensive, but at least it will come with Android 4.4 KitKat operating system out of the box. Motorola has been recently purchased by Chinese company Lenovo and it's unclear whether or not it will launch another flagship smartphone this year.
Still, Lenovo confirmed it will keep Motorola’s roadmap of devices, which means the company might continue to release smartphones as scheduled.
