Motorola's most affordable smartphone Moto E got much cheaper in India.
Official online shop partner Flipkart has slashed ₹1,000 off Moto E, reducing the price from ₹6,999 to ₹5,999.
The sudden price-cut on Moto E is said to be a promotional campaign 'Moto Days' of Flipkart and Motorola to celebrate their collaboration's success of selling more than three million smartphones in India within a year of release of first Moto series (Moto G Gen 1) device.
Besides the rebate on Moto E, Flipkart is offering huge discounts on Google Nexus 6, Moto G (Gen 2), Moto X (Gen 2) models via exchange programme. Prospective buyers can trade-in their old handsets for Motorola's 2014 edition phones. [More Information, HERE]
In a related development, rival OnePlus as part of 10 week debut anniversary in India, is also offering the flagship smartphone 'One' on Amazon India on Tuesday (10 February) without the tedious invite system.
