On February 5th, ie. tomorrow, India's largest online retailer Flipkart alongside Motorola will officially launch the much awaited Moto G. There were fears that the Moto G's stock will be empty on day 1, which seems a possibility considering the rumored price of 8GB is expected to be under Rs. 15,000.
Meanwhile, Snapdeal recorded 1000 pre-order booking for Moto G within 2 hours. Also, Snapdeal is also giving out freebies to its customers along with this phone including Free Airtel 1GB 3G Data code via Email within 7 days of product delivery along with Free 1 Year Accidental Warranty, Free 1 Year Extended Support Warranty and a Free Back Panel Case.
Interestingly, the listing of Moto G on Snapdeal reveals that the device will be made available in the third week of February. This simply means that Motorola will allow other online e-retailers other than Flipkart to sell Moto G in India. However, there are no reports coming whether popular physical retail chains would sell the Motorola Moto G in the coming days to come.
The Moto G will be a serious contender to India's favorite Android-based phone of 2014. The success of the device will be entirely dependent on its affordable price, and word of mouth publicity. Domestic vendors need to be worried, since it for the first time an established International player will challenge them in the affordable segment market.
The Motorola Moto G incorporates a 4.5-inch LCD display having a resolution of 1280 x 720 HD display at 329 pixels. It has a 1.2GHz quad-core processor powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC, backed by 1GB of RAM and 8G/16GB of internal storage. You also get additional 64GB of additional cloud storage.
