Lenovo-owned Motorola launched the Moto X4 in India last year in November, and made it available in 3GB RAM, 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM options eventually. A Mumbai-based retailer now tips that the Moto X4 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant's price has been dropped by as much as Rs. 7,000. Only the 3GB RAM variant has reportedly seen this price drop, according to the retailer, however, Flipkart lists both the 3GB RAM and 4GB RAM variants at reduced price rates, but the price has been reduced by Rs. 5,000 only.
Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom reports that the Moto X4 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant's price has been dropped to Rs. 13,999, down from its original price of Rs. 20,999. Flipkart lists the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant for Rs. 15,999, while the 4GB RAM/64GB storage variant is being sold for Rs. 17,999, down from their respective original prices of Rs. 20,999 and Rs. 22,999. The Moto X4 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant, which was launched in January this year, retails for the original launch price of Rs. 24,999 on the e-commerce platform.
On the other hand, the Moto X4 is listed on Amazon India for Rs. 13,744, Rs. 15,767, and Rs. 19,998 for the 3GB, 4GB and 6GB RAM variants respectively. We have reached out to Motorola regarding the sporadic nature of this price drop, and whether it's a temporary or a permanent cut. We will update this copy as soon as we hear back.
