Exclusive: Moto set to launch Dual-SIM phones in India (live pic and first impressions)

motorola dual sim phonesWe had reported Moto’s plans to launch Dual-SIM phones in India in early August and today we can confirm that the first two Dual-SIM phones will be launched any time now. The Dual-SIM phones will be branded under the EX series and one of the two phones is the first QWERTY Dual-SIM phone from a global vendor (the Big Five, as they are called) while the other will be a complete touch phone running on Moto’s proprietary OS. Both phones have a 3.0 MP camera.



The EX115, the QWERTY phone, will carry a price tag of Rs 5,990 (expect a street price of around Rs 5,000). It has a 2.3-inch QVGA display, FM radio, 3.5 mm audio jack, a microSD card slot that supports up to 32 GB cards and 50 MB of internal memory.



The EX128, which will be priced at Rs 6,990, has a 3.0-inch touchscreen and a slightly different UI than what we have seen in the ROKR E6. Rest of the specs are same as the EX115. During our brief hands on session with the EX128, we were impressed with the responsive touchscreen. It seems to be far better than what we have experienced on Samsung’s Corby series of touch phones and of course, Nokia’s 52xx series.



Both the phones have a dedicated social networking hub of sorts but we could not really tinker much with them during our short date with the two devices. We would be asking for too much, if we expect Motorola’s new Dual-SIM phones to compete with local players but as far as global brands are concerned, both of these phones have their own USPs.

    Both the phones register good appearance. However, at this cost the phones seem to be the basic ones. Moreover, the touch screen phone is yet to listed at which happens to be source of collecting the genuine information and reveiw of any phone.

    this is a nice release from motorola
    I have few doubts, whether the touch screen is resistive or a capacitive touch screen.
    Are both sims active at same time, i mean is it a dual sim active phone. please clarify

      The screen is resistive but we found it to be much better than that of the Nokia 5230. You can take calls on any one SIM at a time.
