In the US, the 2019 version of the iconic Moto Razr is available at $1500, which roughly translates to Rs 1,06,700. Previously, it was rumoured that the India price of the Motorola Razr will be at par with the US pricing. But that will possibly not happen anymore. Now that it is revealed that the Motorola Razr is a Made in India product, it is clear that the phone will be priced cheaper in India when compared to other markets, because of no import duties and taxes.
Smartphone manufacturers like Apple, Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, Realme, OnePlus, HMD Global and others already assemble most of their smartphones and also accessories in India, which has helped the companies set lower price for their products in the country compared to other markets. Apple recently started assembling the iPhone XR in India. The iPhone XR was previously available at a starting price of Rs. 76,900 in India but after Apple started assembling the phone in the country the price dropped. The iPhone XR is currently selling at Rs. 49,900.
We will need to wait for some more time to know how Motorola prices the Made in India Razr in India.
