Yes, folks, this is what we’ve all been waiting for so patiently. The Moto X4 is finally being launched in India officially. You all may remember from one of our previous posts that this phone is going to be Flipkart exclusive.
We can hardly contain ourselves. From the day it was first introduced at IFA 2017, it has captivated us with its dual camera setup and sleek design.
It supports both Amazon Alexa as well as Google Assistant as it comes fitted with Android Nougat 7.1.1. Another one of its attributes is that it features IP68 dust and water resistance.
Prices have been leaked and put the Moto X4 at Rs. 23,999/- which is way lower than its original unveiled price at IFA 2017 which was Rs. 30,300/- or €399/-.
Catch the Launch – LIVE!
The official launch of the Moto X4 was supposed to be on October 3rd, 2017 but the date was since delayed, the probable cause being the deal between Motorola India and Flipkart to make the phone exclusive to Flipkart upon its launch.
