After the huge success of Moto G, Flipkart and Google Motorola are now launching the Moto X in India. The e-commerce giant Flipkart will start selling the MotoX in India from today. The phone, which won a lot of fans globally for its customisation features, will be available in India exclusively on Flipkart for Rs 23,999, a tweet from the official handle said on Tuesday.
“At Rs 23,999 for the colour variants and Rs 25,999 for the wood finish variants, the Moto X is priced aggressively, matching prices in the US market,” Flipkart said in a statement .
Similar to the Moto G partnership, Flipkart.com will be the exclusive outlet for the Moto X in India. The smartphone will be available for purchase on www.flipkart.com starting 12 noon on Wednesday (March 19).
Flipkart said the phone will be available from noon on March 19, but in limited numbers. “This is a phased launch and once sold out, the next lot of the smartphone will be available on Flipkart in the first week of April.”

The Moto X, running Android KitKat 4.4.2 OS, has captured public imagination for its ability to be controlled by voice commands. Moto X's customisation options are a also novel touch, which may appeal to fashionistas.
Motorola Mobility had earlier tied up with Flipkart to launch its budget smartphone Moto G in India. With a very competitive price of Rs 12,499, the phone was an instant hit in the country and was sold out within days.
Shut out of the Apple-Samsung battle, Motorola competes with other smaller players such as HTC, Nokia and BlackBerry.
