The smartphone is available via Motorola’s Brazil website, priced at BRL 899, which roughly translates to Rs 21,400.

As far as specifications are concerned, they remain much the same except a couple of differences. The biggest difference is obviously the addition of LTE network capabilities. Other changes include a bigger 2,390mAh battery (compared to 2,070mAh on the 3G variant), and only one variant with 16GB internal storage.

The rest of the specifications remain the same. So in essence you get a 5-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) display, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and on the software front it runs on Android KitKat, but will be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
There is currently no word on when Motorola will bring the device to India. There is surely a market for the smartphone considering, Xiaomi, YU and even its parent company Lenovo have recently launched affordable 4G LTE smartphones.
