Micromax reacts to Motorola Moto G, slashes price of the Canvas Turbo Mini A200 to Rs 12,990


Just a few weeks after its discreet launch, Micromax’s Canvas Turbo Mini A200 has gone through a price cut and is now available for Rs 12,990 instead of its launch price of Rs 14,490, which appears to be a reaction to the Motorola Moto G that launched in India earlier this month starting from Rs 12,990. Micromax has confirmed it to BGR India that it has slashed the price of the Canvas Turbo Mini to Rs 12,990, though the phone is still available for Rs 14,490 on Micromax’s website.

The Canvas Turbo Mini A200 is a smaller and toned down variant of the company’s Canvas Turbo A250 launched sometime back for Rs 19,990 but is now available for approximately Rs 16,949. The Canvas Turbo Mini A200 comes with a 4.7-inch 720p display instead of the 5-inch 1080p seen on the Canvas Turbo A250. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek chipset with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. The phone sports a 8-megapixel rear camera, which replaces the 13-megapixel seen on the bigger variant, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is topped with the company’s own set of features and apps.

    Well the price cut by Micromax may attract buyers who really don’t know the performance of the Moto G yet.

    But these companies will have to rethink their strategies in coming months as Motorola gains strength in India !!

      My dear Friend, Micromax is a Steady Indian Brand doing very well in India. They need not fear competition. If they drop prices, it just means that they are alert to the market surroundings and have a game plan. I would still compare the Sturdy Turbo a250 with the Moto G. Why will I settle for a lesser configuration like Moto G when I can go in for the more refined Micromax Turbo A250?.
