Moto G launched in India for Rs 12,499

After months of making people wait, Motorola has finally launched the Moto G in India. The much anticipated Android smartphone has been priced at Rs 12,499 for the 8GB model and Rs 13,999 for the 16GB model. The device will be exclusively available on Flipkart, just as BGR India had exclusively reported, from tomorrow.

To recap on the specifications, the Moto G sports a 4.5-inch 720p display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and paired with 1GB of RAM. Other features include 8/16GB internal memory, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.2-megapixel front facing camera and a 2,070mAh battery that Motorola claims to provide all day long battery backup.

Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and on the software front, it runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Motorola promising Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade soon. The device is also said to have internal and external nano coating for water splash resistance.

Flipkart is also offering a range of freebies and discounts on the Moto G to further sweeten the deal. When you buy the device on the launch day, you are entitled to a 70 percent discount on customizable Moto G covers, Rs 500 off on select eBooks, Rs 1,000 off on clothing and accessories and some lucky winners would also be entitled for a 100 percent cashback.

      • GyPO

      • pkg

        It still hasn’t got on sale. Only the pages are live.

    • sevilla

      How do know that the phone costs 14499 in India?

  • sevilla

    Flipkart still says that the phone is cpoming soon! When will it officially be up for sale here?

  • BadaUser

    Please someone update as soon as its available in Flipkart!!!! And does it come with a headphone….

    • GyPO

      i don’t think it comes with headphone

      • BadaUser

        I asked abt headphone because they said the same thing for Nexus 5 but it came with headphone… Lets see….

    • sevilla

      No headphones here. You’ve got to buy your own pair. Try out audio technical! Just got mine from flipkart and boy are they beautiful! :-D

      • Yubaraj Roy

        headphone is included.

        • sevilla

          Check any unboxing video! No headphones included! Its a cost cutting measure.

      • Adarsh Jayakumar

        you got from flipkart, Lol

        • sevilla

          What’s so funny?

          • Adarsh Jayakumar

            Wondering how flipkart gave to you before launching it
            and they officially told it has headphone , Check their facebook page they mentioned “You’ll find these accessories ‘in box’: Headset, Manual, Handset with Inbuilt Battery, Charger, Battery Door” Just knowing its not available in any-other country , you told it doesn’t have headphone and biggest lie is that you brought it from flipkart
            Now are you clear why its funny?

          • sevilla

            I meant I got my audio technica earphones today, which you would have understood had you known English properly.
            Who’s the joke on now retard?

    • sourav

      yup
      dual sim
      with wall charger
      with headphones

    • Rajat Agrawal

      The Indian unit comes with a headphone and wall charger inside the box.

      • sevilla

        Who told you this? That’s wonderful!

        • http://Tech2Yantra.blogspot.com/ Manu Presannakumar

          yes with charger and headphone. moto g has DLNA functionality and awesome GPS,BT4.0LE

  • sevilla

    @pkg how do you know that it cost 14499 when it has not been updated on the flipkart website?

  • Prateek Sahoo

    The price was revealed on flipkart and then the page was taken down…

  • XOLO

    Above description mentioned its has a “dual-SIM card slots”.
    but i think its a single SIM device.

    • Rajat Agrawal

      In India they have launched the dual-SIM version.

  • GyPO

    15k is a fucking great deal,probably buy two

  • GyPO

    i’ was thinking if I should buy a moto x instead for around 24k but at 15k for 16gb sounds better

    • sevilla

      From where were you going to get a moto x? Ands that too for 24k?

      • GyPO

        ebay usa,

        • sevilla

          But adding shipping cost and customs duty you would be paying a lot more!

          • GyPO

            i have considered all that.I wondering if i should go that.which is more value for money- moto g -14k or moto x -24k ?

          • sevilla

            It depends on whether you are on a budget or not. If not buy the moto x.
            Make sure you get it customized! ;-)

          • GyPO

            customized won’t be possible,you can do that only from the motorola website.
            According to the reviews the moto G camera sucks and i feel camera is quite important in a 15k phone.I’m in two minds now,whether to buy this phone or wait for Samsung to come up with an offer to counter the MotoG.Even the Moto X i feel is not really worth the 24k … Based on review,the moto G seems to be loading games faster than the Moto X.Just for the “google now” and Amoled screen i don’t think it’s worth it to pay an extra 10k.LoL I might just go for a second hand iphone 5/5c at 25-30k instead of moto x

          • sevilla

            Please don’t buy the iPhone its an utter waste of Money trust me! I know lots of people who regret spending 40k on that small piece of crap! Why dont you buy the nrexus 4/5 from eBay? Nexus 4 comes to about 300 dollars plus customs!

          • GyPO

            Why do you say that ?i got an iphone 3g around 4 years back and it still serves me well except for the apps ofcourse.The nexus 5 has GPS issues and GPS is most important for me.Iphone 5s is easily the fastest processor around and the camera is also really good.Nexus 4 is an old phone,I’d rather go for the moto g instead at that price range

          • sevilla

            Have you found a seller willing to send it to you as a gift? I mean marking as a gift!
            Please tell me how to contact him/her?
            Thanks a lot! :-)

          • GyPO

            yes ,most are willing to do that and also mark it at 150 bucks,that’s very important because only declaring it a gift is not enough,the value has to be below Rs-10000 or you will have to pay normal duties.Just email the seller if they’re willing to do that,many of them are willing to help but you must have a paypal account

        • sevilla

          Taking into account customs duty you would be paying a lot more

  • Suman Saha

    Have they further reduced the price?

  • GyPO

    I think they are waiting for formal launch before selling

  • Yubaraj Roy

    buy button still missing :(

    waiting since November ;)

    • sevilla

      The phone will be available for purchase from tomorrow going to have to wait for a while!

  • Yubaraj Roy

    Mr. Sambit, can you please tell us when you said “launched” what did you mean? We can’t see the buy button on Flipkart. Did flipkart officially launched moto g at the press conference? If not when that will happen, when we can finally buy moto g?

    • sevilla
