The Motorola Moto E 2nd Gen 3G and 4G LTE variant was launched in India exclusively on Flipkart for Rs 6,999 and Rs 7,999 respectively. Now, both the variants get a price cut in order to compete with the other players in the budget Indian smartphone market.
The Motorola Moto G 2nd Gen 3G now costs Rs 5,999 and the 4G variant is priced at Rs 6,999, exclusively on Flipkart in India. The smartphones were overpriced since launch if compared with the players like Xiaomi, Lenovo, Coolpad and others and also in terms of specs to price ratio. Flipkart is also offering another Rs 2,000 off in exchange for old smartphones. If you’re an Airtel user, you also get double data for two months on select recharge packs. However, it is not clear if it is a limited period offer or permanent price drop.
Even the Motorola Moto G 2nd Gen got a price cut in India and is now available for Rs 9,999 on Flipkart. Motorola is about to announce the Moto G 3rd Gen and Moto X 3rd Gen at an event on July 28. We can also see an updated Moto E as well but it is very unlikely at this moment.
