“Motorola products address key consumer needs,” said Prashanth Mani, Country Head and Managing Director, Motorola Mobility. “With India being one of the fastest-growing over-the-top (OTT) markets in the world with relatively low smart TV penetration, we believe that the Motorola 4K Android TV Stick addresses a key consumer need with its best-in-class features such as a Cortex A53 quad-core processor, built-in Chromecast, support for Ultra-HD content and more."
