Motorola announced the Moto X Style will be available on Flipkart next week for INR 29,999 finally putting an end to its teasers and taking on the equally impressive competitors in the market out there.
With the Style, Motorola has, among almost every other OEM, realised that the camera on a phone stands out as a canonical feature and Motorola makes its biggest leap here. A 21 MP camera with a dual tone flash exists behind the phone. Among other feats, the Style’s camera has an f/2.0 aperture, supports Auto-HDR and can shoot 4K video. The front facing camera is a 5 Megapixel unit which has a flash as well.
The Style has a huge, 5.7-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1440x2560 pixels; a deviation from their preferred AMOLED screen. A hexa-core 1.8 GHz Snapdragon 808, and 3 GB of RAM keep the phone running, fuelling off the 3000 mAh battery.
Android v5.1.1 Lollipop resides at the heart of the phone, backed by Motorola’s suite of software such as Moto Voice, Moto Assist, Moto Display, Moto Actions etc. Also included is Turbo Charging that gives you 10 hours of usage on a 15 minute top-up and yes, the charger is included when you buy the phone.
While the battery remains non-removable, an SD card expansion does allow you upto 128 GB of extra storage, an ability that has started to fade out from the Android space. The Style will also allow 4G connectivity in supported regions.
While the Moto X Style will be available only in Black for now, Motorola is offering the 32 GB variant as well for INR 31,999 which we expect will do a whole lot better considering you’re getting the extra 16 GB for an additional INR 2000.
To sweeten the deal, here’s what you also get when you buy the Moto X Style:
- Vouchers worth INR 6000 in the form of a Flipkart gift voucher worth INR 1000 and if you’re thinking if using makemytrip for that international holiday, you get INR 5000 off.
- 100 lucky customers get 100% cashback (fingers crossed!) and if you want to exchange your phone, you can get upto INR 15,000 off which is half-price really if you think about it.
