Flipkart has stated that it is selling the last stocks of Moto G smartphone and it will no longer be available for sale on the website. Only the 16GB version of the phone, which retails for INR 11,999, is currently available and 8GB version is already out of stock.
With impending announcement of the Moto G successor (expected to be called Moto G2) on September 5 in India, this move is hardly surprising but confirms that G2 will most probably go on sale in India immediately or within days of the official unveiling.
Moto G has been quite popular in the country but with launch of phones like Zenfone 5, it had started looking under-powered despite still being a great value of money device. An upgraded model at this point will surely help Motorola in regaining the consumers, who are heading over to other smartphones because of features like better camera or presence of a microSD card slot, both of which are expected to be a part of Moto G2.
According to rumours, Moto G successor will come with a 5-inch 720p HD display, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera and Android 4.4.4. The phone will also include 8/ 16GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 4G LTE support and the usual set of connectivity options.
There is no word on the pricing of G2 but we will know that pretty soon. It is very likely that Moto G2 will launch at the same price-tag (or less) at which Moto G was originally released in India.
