Motorola smartphones no longer exclusive to Flipkart in India

Motorola re-entered the Indian market last year, tying up with Flipkart to sell its devices exclusively through the retailer. That partnership has now come to a close, as Motorola announced that it would be making its products available on Airtel retail stores across the country along with two competing e-commerce sites, Amazon India and Snapdeal.

The first handset available through other channels is the Moto E 2015, which is sold in 3G and 4G configurations for ₹5,999 ($91) and ₹6,999 ($106) respectively. There's no mention as to when we'll see more recent devices like the Moto X Play available from other stores.

With 5.6 million smartphones sales since February 2014 — crossing over 2.6 million sales this year alone — the device manufacturer is certainly doing well in the country. Broader availability will serve to further the cause.

  • It's good to see Motorola is getting rewarded with sales for their wonderful efforts. They make phones, the way that showcases Android well even at low end. Pity they are not available in a lot of countries Posted via the AC App from SM-N910F
  • Hopefully it continues under Lenovo Posted via the Android Central App
  • Good luck to them. There have been plenty of solid competitors now to the Moto G now compared to when the it first came out. They won't be as lucky as last time. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Motorola had to expand to other stores as Xiaomi and One plus are giving them very tough competition in the Indian market.
