Motorola has reiterated that it will indeed be launching Moto G in India in early-January. The company hasn’t declared a fixed release date until now but given that January is almost here, we shouldn’t have to wait for long.
The company confirmed Moto G India launch plans in a reply to one of our readers on Twitter.
Originally announced back in November, Moto G is Motorola’s first post-Google budget Android smartphone, which is getting rave reviews all over. The phone has been praised for its value for money as it comes with some pretty decent specifications for the price at which it is selling in various markets right now.
Unlocked Moto G retails starting $179 in US, so we expect India price to be around INR 13,000 for the 8GB version and INR 15-16,000 for the 16GB version. These are the expected prices for single SIM version but if Motorola only releases dual-SIM variant in the country, expect the price to be slightly higher.
Motorola has already imported around 240 models of Moto G for pre-launch testing, so we should be hearing India release details soon.
To remind you, Moto G features a 4.5-inch 720p HD display, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.3 (it is likely that India will get the Android 4.4 pre-installed). Check out full specs below.
