Just a few days ago, American company Motorola Mobility had announced to reveal the availability details of Moto G on 5 February. And now Indian online store Flipkart has confirmed that the device would be made available for purchase on the very same day.
The revelation comes amid the doubts of Moto G India launch getting postponed, with Google selling off Motorola Mobility to Chinese firm Lenovo for $2.9 billion few days back.
Now with the announcement from Flipkart, Moto G launch is certain to get a launch in India. The Motorola phone will be initially sold only on online stores as the company's plan to setup distribution in brick-and-mortar stores, with the help of partners Ingram Micro and Redington, has reportedly failed.
Motorola's mid-range smartphone Moto G sports a 4.5-inch HD (1270x720p) LCD screen with 329 ppi (pixels per inch) pixel density. The phone is confirmed to ship with the dual-SIM slots and run on the new Android v4.3 Jelly Bean (with gaurantee of KitKat v4.4 OS update soon after the release).
Under the hood, it houses Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 series quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8G/16GB, 5.0-megapixel main camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera and 2,070 mAh.
Flipkart has also confirmed to give ₹500 discounts on e-Books with the purchase of Moto G, though the company has refrained from providing any price details.
