NEW DELHI: Motorola has launched the bamboo back variant of Moto X smartphone in the Indian market, priced at Rs 25,999. Like other Motorola smartphones, this model too is only available via e-commerce website Flipkart.
Apart from the bamboo finish on the back, the new model of Moto X shares the same design, hardware and software with the other variants.

The plastic variants cost Rs 23,999, whereas the wood back models (including the new bamboo finish) are priced at Rs 25,999.
However, Flipkart is presently offering a discount of Rs 1,000 on the wood back options of Moto X.

Moto X is the only flagship smartphone by a major company that aims to lure customers with the promise of optimized user experience instead of beefed up hardware. The device has a 4.7-inch HD screen, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 10MP camera and 2GB RAM. It is among the few smartphones in the country that run on Android 4.4 operating system and has a water-resistant coating. Buyers get 50GB of Google Drive storage free with Moto X.
The smartphone comes with a unique always-on voice assistant that listens to the commands even if the user is not operating the handset. It also comes with a Quick Capture feature, which allows users to jerk their wrist twice to open the camera app. The camera of Moto X also features ClearPixel technology that allows 75% more light to enter, thus producing better low light pictures.
Much like Nokia's Glance Screen, Moto X comes with Active Display; this feature shows the time, unread messages and emails, missed calls and other notifications even when the screen is turned off. The device is preloaded with the Migrate app, which allows users to transfer data like contacts, photos, videos and even call log and SMSs from any Android 4.2-powered phone.
