Motorola India has confirmed to International Business Times India that the Moto E4 series price information posted by Mahesh Telecom's proprietor Manish Khatri on YouTube is not authentic. The company is expected to announce the official product launch details later this month.
Lenovo-owned Motorola has launched the budget Moto E4 series in India. Like Moto C series, the company has used a dual retail strategy by making the generic Moto E4 exclusive to brick-and-mortar shops, while the top-end Moto E4 Plus is expected to debut online via e-commerce sites.
Though Motorola is yet to officially confirm, a Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom claims to have received Moto E4 stocks priced at Rs 8,999 (MRP) apiece and has posted an unboxing video on YouTube detailing key features of the device.

The rest of the features such as the RAM, storage, display and battery capacity remains the same.
The generic Moto E4 sports a 5.0-inch HD screen with 2.5D cover glass and comes with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB storage, a 2,800 mAh battery, an 8 MP camera with f /2.0 aperture, LED flash and a 5 MP snapper on the front. It comes in black and gold colour options.
On the other hand, Moto E4 Plus features bigger 5.5-inch HD screen, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB/32 GB storage, 13 MP camera on the back, 5 MP shooter on the front and a massive 5,000 mAh battery with rapid charging technology.
