Motorola is all set to launch its Moto X Force ‘shatterproof’ phone in India on Monday. Considering that the Motorola Moto X Force was unveiled in UK with a price tag of GBP 499 (roughly Rs. 49,900) for the 32GB variant, and a GBP 534 (roughly Rs. 53,400) for the 64GB variant, we can expect the India pricing to be around the same range.
Ahead of Motorola’s Monday launch, the anticipated ‘shatterproof’ phone was listed by a third-party retailer last week hinting that the company may for the first time launch its device with more retailers, forgoing its usual exclusive launch on Flipkart.
The biggest highlight of the Moto X Force, which is an international variant of the Droid Turbo 2 for Verizon Wireless, is the ‘ShatterShield’ display. The company in October said that the display is made of an aluminium rigid core, flexible Amoled screen, and dual-layer touchscreen panels (redundancy in case one goes bad) – wouldn’t break into pieces even when dropped on a slab of concrete. Additionally, the smartphone comes with water-repellent nano-coating.
For specifications, the Moto X Force features a 5.4-inch QHD (1440×2560) display; is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core SoC clocked at 2GHz with 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM; comes in 32GB and 64GB inbuilt storage options; supports expandable storage option via microSD card (up to 2TB); sports a 3760mAh battery with Quick Charging support; and features a 21-megapixel rear-camera with an f/2.0 aperture and dual-LED flash and Phase Detect Autofocus, and a 5-megapixel front camera with flash and an f/2.0 aperture.
The Motorola smartphone runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and supports single-SIM with 4G LTE (Cat. 4), Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and other standard connectivity options.
