Motorola’s Moto G4 Play may soon launch in India as the smartphone has shown up on import and export tracking site Zauba. The website that reported the listing first claims that the Motorola Moto G4 Play which is listed as the XT 1607 will launch in India at Rs. 8,999 for the 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage model.
The Zauba listing shows that the units were imported earlier this week from the United States to India. According to the declared values, the Moto XT 1607 is seen priced at Rs. 6,804. Though, to be noted is that import/ export website price listings are only declared values, and usually are not accurate reflections of actual market price. The listing was first spotted by motog3 website.
Back in May, Lenovo-owned company confirmed that the Moto G4 Play will go on sale starting mid-summer 2016 though it did not reveal any pricing details. We can expect the company to announce it near release.
The new Motorola Moto G4 Play is currently listed only in the US and interested consumers can sign-up to get availability details as and when there’s an update.
