Motorola, in collaboration with GreenDust, is reported to sell the unboxed Moto G (Gen 2) via flash sale in India.
"Our 'flash sale' in mobile has done tremendously well in the recent past with customers making the most of our value-for-money deals. As a market leader in the refurbished market, we now plan to extend the flash sale model to more brands and categories," said GreenDust Founder & CEO Hitendra Chaturvedi.
For the uninitiated, unboxed models are seal-opened, but unused. On the other hand, devices with software issues, which are fixed by Green Dust, will be sold as 'refurbished' models.
Both unboxed and refurbished Moto G (Gen 2) models are priced ₹8,999, which is ₹4000 less than the original model's price. It is sold exclusively via Flipkart in India. If consumers buy the phone via mobile app, they will get additional ₹200 discount.
[Note: Last week, Motorola's official partner Flipkart slashed the MRP (Maximum Retail Price) of Motorola Moto G (Gen 2) from ₹12,999 to ₹10,999]
The company has also claimed that the buyers of these refurbished/unboxed Moto (Gen 2) models would get six months GreenDust warranty and one-year free mobile damage protection apart from accidental and liquid damage protection.
But there is one caveat. GreenDust says Moto G (Gen 2) are very limited in numbers, so it will be sold via flash sale based on first-come-first-serve policy. Prospective buyers can pre-order the 2014 edition Motorola mid-range phone [HERE].
