In a surprising move, Motorola today declared that the recent discounts on its Moto G3 and Moto G Turbo smartphones offered by Flipkart were unofficial. This comes after Motorola had reportedly slashed the prices of both the smartphones by Rs 1,000, ahead of its Moto G4 Plus launch on Tuesday.
“This is with reference to the price reduction of Moto smartphones on Flipkart. We have not officially announced any discount on any of the Moto smartphones available on Flipkart. This has not been endorsed by the brand,” said Rachna Lather, marketing head, Motorola India in a statement.
The current prices of Moto G3 and Moto G Turbo on Flipkart are Rs 9,999 and Rs 11,499. Interestingly, rival Amazon.in is also selling both the smarpthones for the same price.
Flipkart is also offering exchange offers starting at as low as Rs 1,999 and Rs 2,499 for the 16GB storage variant of Moto G3 and Moto G Turbo respectively.
Motorola has partnered exclusively with Amazon.in for its latest Moto G4 Plus smartphone. In September 2015, after 18-months of exclusive tie-up with Flipkart, Motorola had decided to start selling its devices on rival platforms such as Snapdeal and Amazon India. They also took the offline route with the business entering large-format stores such as Reliance Retail and Airtel-branded shops.
The new Moto G4 Plus comes at a price tag of Rs 13,499 (16GB inbuilt storage+2GB RAM version), while the one with 32GB storage and 3GB RAM has been priced at 14,999. The Moto G4 Plus is the first Motorola smarpthone to feature a fingerprint sensor. Boyd Gordon Authentic JerseyShare This
