Moto C and C Plus bring Motorola simplicity to under-€119 crowd

Lenovo has just announced two new budget smartphones from its Motorola-built Moto brand as the Moto C and Moto C Plus.

Anyway, Motorola won't be launching the Moto C in the United States, as they are budget devices destined to go on sale on emerging markets from Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific. So far, the company has yet to announce if the phones will go on sale in North America.

The Motorola Moto C features a 5-inch display with a lowly 854 x 480-pixel resolution. The Moto C (3G) is available in Black and White starting at €89 ($97), while the 4G variant starts at €99 ($109) in Black, White, Cherry or Gold. Standard features across both data models include a 5in display at 845x480 pixels, microSD support, a 2,350 mAh battery, 1GB of RAM and both 5MP primary and 2MP secondary cameras.

Moto C is a sleek-designed phone with micro-textured back cover and a vivid display.

The Moto X-series - described as offering "Unlimited Perfection" - is expected to be called Moto X4 and is suggested to come packed with a 5.2-inch full-HD display and a SmartCam as well. Also, they run near stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS.

There's also the Motorola Moto C Plus, which Motorola says offers "a larger display, a more powerful battery, and a more advanced camera", although we're not yet privy to full hardware details. Our own reports also state that Motorola plans to sell a version of the phone with 2 GB of RAM but no pricing for that model has been revealed. This smartphone offers dual SIM slots, and lets you insert that extra microSD card to store more files.

A new Moto X will finally be unveiled. Moto C Plus starts at €119 (roughly Rs. 8,300) with 1GB RAM/16GB storage. Moto C come out in a 3G as well as a 4G variant. Fortunately, the presentation video of this particular phone is leaked on the China's Baidu website that the device is powered by latest Snapdragon 660 SoC, 64GB internal storage along with 4GB of RAM, and a 3800 mAh battery. Regarding dimensions, Moto C Plus measures 144 x 72.3 x 10 mm and weighs 162 grams.
