After getting acquired by Lenovo, Motorola has been focusing more on budget segment smartphones. In line with this, the company seems to be working on a new smartphone series — Moto C, which could also be its cheapest smartphone line-up.
Several reports suggest that the company is working on Moto C and the bigger variant of the same phone, dubbed Moto C Plus. These smartphones are said to be the cheapest to come from Motorola. Yes, even cheaper than the Moto E.
The phone’s images have been leaked online, giving us a detailed look into smartphone’s design and available color variants. As per the reports, both the smartphones will be running Android 7.0 Nougat OS.
While the screen size of both the phones will essentially be the same — 5-inch, the phones will be differentiated based on their internal specifications. Moto C is said to come with a resolution of 854 x 480, the C Plus steps it up to 1280 x 720 HD resolution.
The Moto C will be available in two variants — one with 4G LTE radios and one presumably aimed at emerging markets which will be limited only to 3G. Also, the Moto C will only come with 1GB of RAM, but the C Plus will be available in 1GB or 2GB RAM, depending on the region.
Similarly, the storage space will also vary depending on the market. You can expect either 8 GB or 16 GB onboard storage along with microSD slots for expanding the storage option. The Plus variant is also said to be powered by a 64-bit 1.3 GHz quad-core processor.
As of the optics, both the Moto C models come with a 5-megapixel rear camera but autofocus will only be present on the 4G model. The C and C Plus share the same 2-megapixel selfie shooter, but the Plus gets an 8-megapixel sensor for the primary camera.
The Moto C is said to be powered by a 2,350mAh capacity battery, while the Moto C Plus will be powered by a 4000mAh battery. There is no word yet on release dates or launch markets. It will be available in black, white, gold and red colors. Given the focus on emerging markets, we bet India is somewhere ar the top of launch list.
