Moto E4 and E4 Plus, the budget Android smartphones from Lenovo-owned Motorola, are expected to launch in India soon. Moto India has been teasing the launch of a new smartphone for some time and now a prominent retailer has revealed that the Moto E4 will launch in the next few days.
In a now pulled down tweet, Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom claims that the Moto E4 will be in stock in one or two days. The tweet first reported by Gadgets360 also suggests that the handset could be priced around Rs 8,500. Motorola is also expected to launch the Moto E4 Plus with a big battery in India soon.
