Motorola has cut the prices of its Moto G smartphone in India by Rs 2,000. This move comes soon after the launch of smartphones like Asus ZenFone 5 (Rs 9,999) and Xiaomi Mi 3 (Rs 13,999), which offer better specifications at more aggressive prices.
With this price cut, the 8GB version of Moto G can be purchased for Rs 10,499, while the 16GB model is available for Rs 11,999. This is a limited period offer and valid only till stocks last, according to the listing on Flipkart, which is the sole retailer of Motorola smartphones in India.
Flipkart has previously lowered the prices of Moto G via smartphone buyback offers, but there has never been any flat-out price cut for the device yet.
Moto G sports a 4.5-inch screen with a 720p resolution and runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat) operating system. It is powered by a middle-of-line Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor running at 1.2GHz. The device comes with 8GB and 16GB storage options and has 1GB RAM. The primary camera can shoot images in 5MP, while the secondary camera is 1.3MP.
It is rumoured that Motorola is working on the successor of Moto G at present. While most hardware features of the smartphone remain the same as the original Moto G, the upcoming successor will reportedly get a camera upgrade.
