Motorola Moto G (Gen 2) Price Slashed to Rs. 9,999
Motorola India has slashed the price of its Moto G (Gen 2), making the smartphone Rs. 3,000 cheaper than its launch price.

The Motorola Moto G (Gen 2) (Reviews | Images) is available now via Flipkart at a price of Rs. 9,999, down from its launch price tag of Rs. 12,999.

It's worth noting that this is the first permanent price cut of the second-generation Moto G since its launch in September last year.

In a Facebook post, Motorola India announced the news and said, "Surprise surprise! The brand new Moto G can be yours at just Rs. 9,999." The price cut from Motorola India seems to be an attempt of the company to keep the smartphone relevant in the budget phone segment. One of the biggest disadvantages of the Moto G (Gen 2) is that it doesn't support 4G LTE connectivity.

A lot of smartphones in recent weeks have received price cuts including the Honor 6 which is now available at Rs. 16,999, and the Xiaomi Mi 4 (16GB) which is now retailing at Rs. 14,999. Xiaomi India also announced a price cut on the Redmi Note 4G, available at Rs. 7,999 and earlier on Tuesday announced price cut for the Redmi 2, now available at Rs. 5,999.

The new price cut on the Moto G (Gen 2) also brings it around Lenovo's K3 Note phablet price.
