Lenovo has reportedly quietly launched the Moto E4 in India. The smartphone is now available to buy in India, as per an established offline retailer, and the Moto E4 price in India is said to be Rs. 8,999 (MRP). While this is said to be the retail price of the smartphone currently, official Moto E4 launch and price details have not been shared by Lenovo yet. This comes amid Moto's confirmation that the company will soon launch the Moto E4 Plus with 5000mAh battery in the Indian market.
Mumbai-based retailerr Mahesh Telecom has published a video showing the Moto E4 in stock at his retail store. While the smartphone was launched with a Snapdragon processor in North America, in India, the MediaTek variant has arrived. Lenovo had also confirmed to Gadgets 360 earlier as well, that Moto E4 will be powered by the MediaTek MTK6737M chipset outside of North America. We have reached out to Lenovo for confirmation about the Moto E4 price in India, as well as availability, and will update this copy when we hear back.
Furthermore, Moto India has also confirmed the launch of the Moto E4 Plus in India soon. After the first teaser, the company has now published a YouTube video confirming that the 5000mAh battery power smartphone is coming to India soon. Watch the video below.
