It has been a little over four years since the Lenovo owned Motorola has returned to the smartphone market. Ever since then, India has been their one of the biggest markets and they have a very strong and reliable user-base in the country. The users too have responded well to the brand, and it has become one of the most popular and trustworthy brands in the country. The company is working proactively in the smartphone technology and has launched a range of Moto smartphones this year. However, as of now, the sale is restricted to online stores.
Most of the smartphone maker are using online exclusive sale model ignoring the offline sector completely and leave it to be dominated by Oppo, Vivo, and Gionee. Although the country has adapted well to the e-commerce websites, the general consensus is that they still trust offline stores a little more.
The company is now gearing up for offline retail expansion too and is set to unveil their first ever MotoHub on August 3, 2017, at Noida.
The first ever MotoHub will be opening up the Great India Palace Mall, Noida. It is a popular shopping destination for people in entire Delhi NCR region. The outlet will open on 3rd of August at 11:30 AM. The retail outlet will be dedicated to Motorola devices along with their accessories.
Motorola, however, is not the first brand to start off with an offline store in the country. A little earlier this year, Xiaomi too has stepped into the offline market with its Mi Home situated in Bangalore. Both the companies are expected to expand their offline reach to many more Indian cities in the coming months which will lead to a healthy competition in the offline market as well.
