Motorola unveiled the world's first shatter-proof display based smartphone Droid Turbo 2 in US in October. Now, the flagship device is set to hit Indian stores with Moto X Force moniker next month.

Motorola India chief Amit Boni in an interview with IBNLive has confirmed that the new Moto X Force will be released in India in January 2016, but refrained from divulging the price details of the device.

Boni also shared Motorola's Android Marshmallow release details with regard to the Moto G (3rd Gen) and Moto X Play.

He also told the site that India is a very important market for the company and hence the country will be part of the phase-1 of the update release program. The roll out process would commence by this month-end or early January 2016.

For the uninitiated, Moto X Force boasts company's proprietary 'Moto ShatterShield' display technology. It constitutes of five layers -- Aluminium chassis to form the rigid core, flexible AMOLED screen, and two layered touchscreen panels, interior lens to provide clear visibility of contents and exterior lens to provide additional protection -- so that the phone's display will be capable of absorbing shock from the impact and is guaranteed not to shatter, says the company.

On the back-side (of base model), it boasts ballistic nylon (metal glass fiber) that offers a distinctive design while providing ultimate durability. And also, underneath this coating, Moto X Force features Kevlar, a material that is known to be five times stronger than steel. 

Under the hood, it houses powerful Snapdragon 810 series Octa-core in addition to company's proprietary Mobile computing system comprising natural language processor, contextual computing processor, 550 MHz Adreno 430 graphics engine backed by 3GB RAM and 32GB/64GB inbuilt memory.
