Motorola Moto Turbo With 5.2-Inch QHD Display Launched at Rs. 41,999
Motorola India over the weekend teased the launch of the Motorola Moto Turbo in the country, and now, Flipkart on Monday has started taking pre-orders for the smartphone, which is priced at Rs. 41,999 for the 64GB Ballistic Nylon variant. The Flipkart page notes that the smartphone will be released in the third week of March.

The online retailer is also giving away launch day offers such as 100 percent cashback for 25 consumers and extra 10 percent off on the handset if purchased with American Express Cards. Notably, both the offers are only valid for Monday.

The Motorola Moto Turbo is a new variant of the Motorola Moto Maxx, which is the global variant of the Motorola Droid Turbo that is exclusive to US mobile carrier Verizon. Back in February, Flipkart teased the launch of the high-end Moto Turbo on Flipkart without revealing more details about the handset.

Going by Flipkart's listing of the Moto Turbo, the handset comes with identical specifications as the Moto Maxx. It also sports two material builds - Ballistic Nylon and Kevlar Fibre on the rear.


The new Motorola Moto Turbo comes with some top-notch specifications, such as a QHD display - which has been seen on smartphones such as LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and is perhaps the highlight of the device. It features a 5.2-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) Amoled display offering a pixel density of 565ppi, much higher than the 5.5-inch LG G3 at 534ppi and 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 4 at 515ppi. The screen also includes a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer.

The Moto Turbo also supports Motorola's Turbo Charger, a new accessory from the company stables that is said to provide 7 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging.

The smartphone is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7GHz coupled with an Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
