Motorola has released the Moto G4 Plus variant into the market but has delayed the launch of the Moto G4 model in India. However, all the details of the Moto G4 except the price have been revealed, giving a clear idea of the devices it will take on when launched.
The company hasn't revealed the price of the Moto G4, but looking at the Moto G4 Plus, which is priced at Rs. 13,499 for the 16GB internal storage and 2GB RAM model and Rs. 14,999 for the 32GB internal memory and 3GB RAM variant, it appears like its price will fall between Rs. 10,000 and Rs. 12,000.
