While Motorola had earlier said that the Moto G will be coming to the Indian market in early January, the company now confirms it further. Replying to a tweet by @rajkumar_geek asking the possible launch of the Moto G in India, Motorola officially confirmed the device should hit Indian markets in next couple of weeks.

The company has already started rolling out Android KitKat update to Moto G users in select regions. This means, the smartphone could come with Android 4.4 KitKat, right out of the box, making it the second such phone after the Nexus 5.

The device has already gathered loads of accolades for its performance, build and price. Priced at $179 which amounts to approximately Rs 10,900 for an 8GB off-contract unit, the Moto G puts every other budget Android smartphone to shame. We also learned last week that Motorola is taking a thin-margin approach to the Moto G, which costs Google $123 in terms of component and assembly costs. This means Motorola has an operating profit margin of about 5 per cent for each Moto G sold. So the company is not afraid of making sacrifices to get its phone to more corners.
