Moto G Price in India
In the US, unlocked vanilla Moto g phone without any customizations costs USD 179 for 8GB version and USD 199 for 16GB version. The price in India is expected to be higher given the taxes and duties levied here. In our view, with the kind of specifications Moto g boasts of, we assume the phone will be launched in the range of Rs. 17000 to Rs. 20000. Any price below Rs. 17k and Moto g becomes a must buy for anyone and everyone.
Samsung must be keenly awaiting this launch because if Moto g is priced competitively, it has potential to erode lot of their market share in mid-size smartphone segment.
So, if you have been eagerly waiting for this phone, head over to Flipkart’s microsite !
