Motorola launched the second generation of its popular Moto G and Moto X devices on Friday, called the Moto G (Gen 2)
and Moto X (Gen 2)
While the company has announced India pricing and availability
of the Moto G (Gen 2), it has yet to disclose the pricing for the Moto X (Gen 2) in India - though Motorola
did say it will be made available by the end of the month. The company however has disclosed US pricing at $499.99 (roughly Rs. 30,200) unlocked, and $99.99 (roughly Rs. 6,000) on a 2-year contract across select carriers.
Both phones are powered by Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and the company has confirmed it will roll out an Android L update for the two devices - however, there was no mention made of such an update for the previous generation.
