Moto X4 India launch is scheduled for Monday, at a New Delhi event scheduled to begin at 2:30pm IST. Stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for more details from the Moto X4 India launch event, as they happen. The smartphone was one of the first to come with inbuilt support for Amazon's Alexa voice assistant, and based on Android 7.1 Nougat, it of course also supports Google Assistant. Other highlights include IP68 water and dust resistance. So far, the expected Moto X4 price in India has been leaked - Rs. 23,999. This is significantly lower than the EUR 399 (roughly Rs. 30,300) price tag given to it at its launch during IFA 2017. To note, the Moto X4 was originally supposed to launch on October 3, before being delayed. We also know the smartphone will be a Flipkart exclusive.
