The Moto G will start selling in India this Thursday from retailer Flipkart, Motorola announced today.
The Moto G, which first launched in November, is one of the phones that impressed us the most in 2013, thanks to its super attractive price and great specifications. The 4.5-inch device will be available in India for Rs. 12,499 (approximately $200 at today’s course) for the 8GB model, and 13,999 ($225) for the 16GB version. As the Moto G lacks an SD card slot, the higher capacity version seems like the best choice, especially if you want to pack a lot of media on the go.
The Moto G is available in India in a dual-SIM version.
Flipkart will be offering the Moto G starting from Thursday, though it’s already listed on the website. The retailer will have a period of exclusivity on the device, even though some other local retailers have also listed the Moto G as coming soon.
To make the deal sweeter, Flipkart is throwing in discounts on ebooks and clothing products for every Moto G customer, as well as a massive 70 percent discount on the Moto G colored shells.
Check out our review of the Moto G:
The main specs of the Moto G include a 4.5-inch HD LCD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, and 1GB of RAM. The device runs Android 4.3 out of the box, but KitKat should grace it “in a matter of days”. As an added bonus, each buyer receives 50GB of Drive storage.
