Moto X Force price, release date in India: Motorola teases shatterproof display ahead of launchMotorola (UK) site screen-shot

Motorola's flagship smartphone Moto X Force received a massive price cut in India, bringing the base 32GB variant's price down to Rs. 34,999. The Moto X Force was launched in India in February starting at Rs. 49,999 for the 32GB model and Rs. 53,999 for the 64GB variant. The 64GB model is also available for Rs. 16,000 cheaper, costing Rs. 37,999 after the discount.

Motorola's shatterproof smartphone is available with this new discount on all ecommerce sites, including Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon India, but only for a limited time. There is no news on when the offer will be lifted, so interested buyers would be better off acting fast.

The price cut on the Moto X Force makes it a strong competitor of several premium flagships in the market, such as Huawei Nexus 6P, Samsung Galaxy S6, iPhone 6 and Asus Zenfone Zoom. In addition to now being cheaper by Rs. 15,000 to Rs 16,000, the Moto X Force packs a pretty impressive spec-sheet. The highlight of the handset is its shatterproof display, but it has more to offer.

Motorola uses an aluminium rigid core and a flexible AMOLED screen with dual-layer protection touch-screen panels, which ensures extra strength. The handset also has a water-repellent nano-coating, meaning it can handle falls and splashes. Even with all that protection, Motorola offers a four-year replacement warranty in case of accidental damage, an option most original equipment manufacturers refuse to cover under standard warranty.

In terms of specifications, the Moto X Force comes with a 5.4-inch QHD display, 21MP primary camera with dual LED flash and a 5MP front-snapper with wide-angle lens and f/2.0 aperture (both lenses). It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB RAM and comes with microSD card support of up to 2TB.

The handset packs a 3,760mAh battery, which the company claims can offer 48 hours of mixed usage, with TurboPower to extend the handset's runtime for up to 13 hours and 15 minutes. It also supports Qi wireless charging. The front-facing Smartboost speakers assure audible sound for music.

Moto X Force comes in white, grey and black colours, and all the hues are available online. The handset was also made available in retail stores in late February, so buyers can get a feel of the handset before purchasing it.
