Motorola began teasing an Indian launch of its high-end Moto X Style last week and we now have a launch date. The phone is set to make its regional appearance on October 8th. We don’t have a retail price for the Moto X Style in India yet, but a safe bet would probably put the phone somewhere around Rs. 26,000 to Rs. 28,000 ($400 – $430).
If you are in need of a quick refresher, the Moto X Style boasts a 5.7-inch QHD (2560×1440) display, hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC, 3GB of RAM, a 21 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front facing camera. There’s also a 3,000mAh battery, IP52 protection against water, Android 5.1 Lollipop on board and your choice of either 16, 32 or 64GB of internal memory. Check out our hands on time and impressions of the handset in the videos below:
If you would like to be in with a chance to win a Moto X Style when it launches in India, Motorola is holding a contest through its Twitter and Facebook accounts today. Send Motorola your definition of “beautility” and explain which 2 traits define that word for you, along with the #BeautilityIs hashtag, and you could be one of two lucky winners. You can read the contest terms and conditions over on this page.
Motorola has also launched the low cost Moto G 2015 model in India and the mid-range Moto X Play arrived in the country just a few weeks ago. Just as with these previous Motorola launches, the Moto X Style will be available through online retailer FlipKart.
