The 10.or D comes in two memory variants, with one being carrying 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage priced at Rs 4,999. The higher memory variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage will retail at Rs 5,999. Both these variants will be available exclusively on Amazon India starting 5th January 2017. For Amazon Prime members the company is offering additional one year warranty on the phone.
