Moto X4 India launch will be held on November 13, the company has announced via a tweet. The launch was originally set for October 3, but was later postponed without a new date being specified. In its tweet, the company did not reveal any details of the Moto X4, which was unveiled globally at IFA 2017 in Berlin. There is no word on the Moto X4 price in India; the smartphone is priced at EUR 399 (about Rs. 30,000) in Europe.

With the launch of Echo devices and Amazon Alexa Voice Services in India earlier this month, we can now expect the smartphone to come bundled with a fully-functional Alexa in India as well.
