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.
The phone’s unique feature, as Motorola explains, is its screen with four layers of material that makes it sort of indivisible even in the case of nasty falls. It also features tougher scratch-resistant coating.
The hardware inside the Moto X Force is also fairly high-end though now that the Snapdragon 820 is round the corner it is not clear how much of an appeal the Snapdragon 810 will hold. The Moto X Force uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor and has 3GB RAM. It also comes with 32GB internal storage and has a big 3760 battery inside it. The phone has a 5.4-inch screen size with 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution, a 21-megapixel camera (probably the same that does the duty in the Moto X Style) and a 5MP front camera. Just like other Moto phones the Force too uses pure Android aka the “Android that is unmodified”. It currently runs of Android Lollipop but the Marshmallow update is expected soon. In fact, it is possible that Motorola may launch the phone in India with Marshmallow in it.
The Moto X Force has already been listed on Amazon India which makes it clear that this won’t be a Flipkart exclusive. With Moto X Force, Motorola would be back in the league of Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge+, Google Nexus 6P and Apple iPhone 6s.
