Of the duo of Moto X (Moto X Play and Moto X Style) smartphones announced this year by Motorola, the Moto X Play is already available in India. On the other hand, the high-end Moto X Style isn’t yet, but it would be available in India very soon.
Motorola started teasing the launch of the Moto X Style in the subcontinent last week, and now it looks like we have an actual date to speak of. The image you can see below is a teaser put up by Flipkart, India’s biggest online retailer (which could be gearing up to exclusively offer this device).
Now all that remains to be seen is whether the Moto X Style will actually be available for purchase on October 8 or if that’s just the date of its announcement for the Indian market (in which case it’s going to be released later).
50 units of Motorola Moto X Style have been imported into India at a price of Rs 30,383. Hence, we can expect the company to price it closer to Rs 30,000-32,000 in the country and it would likely be a Flipkart exclusive, initially.
