A low price is probably the biggest factor driving smartphone sales in India, a huge and fast growing market where local players go against international powerhouses to establish dominance. That explains why solid smartphones are being offered here at extremely competitive prices, and the Moto E is a great example for that.
The normally cheap Moto E (2nd gen.) is available at an even lower price in India. Motorola operated a INR 1000 ($16) cut, which may not seem like much, but it’s more than 10% off the price of the base version of the Moto E.
Following the price cut, the Moto E (2nd gen.) 3G will sell for INR 5,999 ($94), while the LTE model will go for INR 6,999 ($110). Both models are available on Flipkart. You can get the Moto E for even cheaper (up to INR 200o off) if you bring in an old smartphone in exchange, though only select models and brands are accepted.
The second generation of the Moto E was unveiled in January, bringing a 4.5-inch 540 x 960, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 or 410 (for 3G and LTE respectively), 8GB of storage, and a 5MP camera. These are base level specs, without doubt, but then again so is the price, and you do get Android Lollipop on a brand-name smartphone.
