Motorola and Flipkart, the exclusive online partner of the Lenovo-owned company in India, have introduced a new exchange offer for users who wish to buy the company's latest Moto X (Gen 2) handset at a discount.
With the Motorola Moto X (Gen 2) exchange offer, users can get a discount of up to Rs. 6,000 depending on the handset they put up for exchange, thus making the smartphone available for as little as Rs. 25,999 compared to its Rs. 31,999 listing price on Flipkart.
To avail the offer, users have to visit the Flipkart listing page for the Moto X (Gen 2), and fill in information like brand, model number and IMEI number of their old handsets to learn the discount they can avail with the exchange. Notably, the exchange offer is valid on select devices only.
Once the online purchase process is completed, users can handover their old handset in working condition to the field executive at the time of delivery of Moto X (Gen 2). Also, only one device can be exchanged for a single purchase of Moto X (Gen 2). However, Flipkart has also added that the old handset the user is exchanging for the new smartphone will not be shipped back to them in case they return the Moto X (Gen 2) handset later.
Motorola had unveiled the Moto X (Gen 2) globally at an event in India in September.
The Moto X (Gen 2) ships with Android 4.4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box, and is available in two storage size variants - 16GB and 32GB - with no expandability via microSD card slot. It features a 5.2-inch (1080x1920 pixel) OLED display with a pixel density of 423ppi, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
The handset is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974-AC) processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM. The Moto X (Gen 2) comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with a f/2.25 lens with 4K video recording and dual-LED ring flash, as well a 2-megapixel front-facing camera capable of 1080p video recording. It is powered by a 2300mAh battery.
