Motorola Moto X specs, features, price and release date in India
Quite like other latest smartphones, the newbie also packs in two cameras. The Moto X houses a 10-megapixel Clear Pixel primary rear shooter with LED flash and a secondary front facing 2-megapixel snapper. Besides the usual sensor features, the phone also boasts of a Quick Capture Camera functionality. When a user holds the phone and twists his or her wrist twice, the phone's camera activates. The handset can also take clear, well defined pictures of fast moving action. Those who love to take pictures on the go will specially enjoy its 16:9 aspect ratio.
Touchless Control makes the Moto X ones of the most convenient devices to use when one is out and about. Thanks to this feature, one can get the handset to carry out a variety of functions without actually touching it, by simply giving it verbal instructions. Among other things, the phone can be instructed to check the weather, search the web for information, set an alarm etc. All a user has to say to kick-start it into action is 'Okay Google Now'. Add to the mix the phone's Always-on Google Now functionality and you have an efficient, responsive device on your hands.
The Moto X's Active Display also makes it an efficient device. One can check important information on the handset without first unlocking it or pressing the power button. Every time a user takes the phone out of a bag or a pocket, it displays both the time and important notifications like missed calls and messages. To access these notifications, a user needs only to slide up on an icon that's on the screen.
What makes the Moto X stand out against its competition is the fact that it can be customized and personalized to make it into just the smartphone one desires. Besides choosing its storage and colour, a user can even have his or her name imprinted on the handset and set up an individual welcome message thanks to Moto Maker.
The Moto X is made in USA and will start retailing there later this month. The 16 GB variant of the handset is priced at $199 (approx. Rs. 12,000) while its 32 GB model costs $249 (approx. Rs. 15,500) on a 2 year contract with major cellular carriers.
It is not yet known for sure if the Moto X will make its way to Indian shores, though rumour has it that it will. We will be waiting and watching for the well endowed handset - stay with us on KYMI.
