Motorola, among its latest fleet of smartphones, launched its budget Moto G (Gen 3) in India while introducing the Moto X Play and Moto X Style at global events in July. The Lenovo-owned firm is now teasing the launch of a new smartphone in India, and it is expected to be the cheaper Moto X Play handset.
On Sunday, Motorola India tweeted "No more getting dumped by your phone. Your perfect partner is coming with 30 hours of battery backup. #XOMotoX," along with an image. The image showed the upper-back panel of the smartphone with its iconic design and the Motorola logo dimple at the centre.
