New stocks of the Motorola's budget smartphone Moto E has reportedly landed in India, and its shipment is expected to begin soon.
Moto E, which is exclusively available on Flipkart, was sold out on the very first day (within 16 hours) of its release. The response from public was so overwhelming that when the phone was made available for purchase at 12:00 AM on 14 May, the site crashed due to heavy user traffic. Even though, it recovered within half an hour, Flipkart had to replenish inventory twice. It finally ran out-of-stock by late evening the same day.
The company reportedly sold between 80,000 and 1 lakh units on day one of the launch and now, according to import data (courtesy, Zauba.com) available with the technology website, AndroidOS.in, Flipkart has received the new batch from Motorola containing around 11,700 units.
The website says the these units are meant to be delivered to consumers who pre-booked the gadget after the Moto E stocks went dry last weekend and added that the online store is expected to receive more shipments in few days time. As of now, Flipkart has stopped taking orders and is focusing on delivering the devices to the buyers.
Prospective consumers can type-in their email-ID at Flipkart to get a notification from the company when the stocks arrive.
Moto E sports a 4.3-inch qHD (960x540p) display with scratch-and-splash resistant Gorilla Glass 3 protection and runs on the Android v4.4 KitKat OS powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 dual-core processor backed by Adreno 302 GPU, 1GB RAM and 4GB inbuilt storage (expandable up to 32GB).
