Motorola recently launched the affordable Moto C Plus smartphone in India at Rs. 6,999. The smartphone is exclusive to Flipkart. Motorola and Flipkart conducted the first sale of the phone on June 20. And guess what, the device went out of stock in just seven minutes.
"The entire stock on Flipkart was sold out within 7 minutes of the sale opening, selling at a bristling rate of 100 units per second! With over half a million unique visitors to the product page on Flipkart, the sale saw the highest ever intent in a Motorola smartphone," said the e-commerce site.
The Moto C Plus seems to be a bit overpriced for the specifications it offers, but the stock Android usage and big battery came to the rescue. The smartphone will be now available for purchase via the open sale in Flipkart starting 12 PM today. So, it's a relief for people who were looking to purchase the device in the first sale.
The Moto C Plus uses a 5-inch HD display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and a 2.5D curved glass on top.
