Second-generation Motorola Moto G gets a 25% permanent price cut in India
Motorola India has turned to social media to announce a permanent 25% price cut for the second-generation Motorola Moto G. That works out to the equivalent of a $47.27 USD discount on the phone, bringing the handset's new price to $157.54. Motorola India could be looking to clear out inventory before the launch of the third-generation Mototola Moto G. Last month, a video purportedly showed the next iteration of the Moto G, and online retailer Flipkart mistakenly posted a listing for it back in May.

The second-generation Moto G comes with a 5-inch LCD screen featuring a 720 x 1280 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 294ppi. A Snapdragon 400 chipset is under the hood, carrying a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 305 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside along with 8GB of expandable memory. An 8MP camera (with an aperture of f/2.0) is on back, with a front-facing 2MP shooter ready to handle selfies and video chats. A 2070mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.0 is pre-installed.

Another reason for the price cut is the competitive market in India. The Lenovo K3 Note, which will have its pilot flash sale in India tomorrow, is also priced at $157.54, but includes a larger 5.5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution, and an octa-core CPU inside. The Xiaomi Redmi 2 is more comparable specs-wise to the second-generation Moto X, and that phone has just received a cut in price to $95 USD.


Thanks for the tip!

I'm not sure if the price cut will help them fend off the Xiaomi, LG, Lenovo, and Micromaxx phones offering better specs for the same price.

But Motorola's suppsupport is much better than the companies that you have mentioned, and the android experience on their phones is very close to stock, which is a good thing.
