As per the tweet from Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom, the Moto E4 is available via the retail stores at a price of Rs. 8,999. The retailer has not revealed anything regarding the Moto E4 Plus but we believe that it will be launched soon as Moto India has put up a video teaser of the same on its official YouTube channel.
