Moto C and Moto C Plus detailed, expected to be very affordable

by Brandon Russell | April 11, 2017

Motorola has proved it can hang in the premium market, but the company’s mid-range game is where it really excels, offering terrific devices such as the Moto G and Moto G Plus.

Now, a report from VentureBeat suggests the company is going to offer another set of affordable handsets aimed at first-time smartphone buyers.

According to the report, the Lenovo-owned company is gearing up to release the Moto C and Moto C Plus, both of which are rumored to launch with Android 7.0. Outside of software, however, these two devices will offer decidedly different specs.

The Moto C, for example, is said to sport a 5-inch display with a resolution of 854 x 480, while the Moto C Plus’s 5-inch display with have a resolution of 1280 x 720. Meanwhile, the Moto C is expected to offer two flavors—3G and 4G—with the Moto C Plus coming in an LTE configuration.

All Moto C devices are expected to include MediaTek processors and up to 2GB of RAM depending on which model you choose. Internal storage capacity will reportedly be as low as 8GB, VentureBeat reports, though all variants will support expandable storage.

Finally, VentureBeat reports the Moto C will come equipped with a 5-megapixel camera and  2,350mAh battery, while the C Plus will sport an 8-megapixel camera and a larger 4,000mAh battery.

Where can I buy one?

No prices for either device was unveiled, and it isn’t clear which markets the devices will launch in. Considering the Moto G and Moto G Plus just became available, it’s very possible the Moto C and Moto C Plus will only launch in emerging markets, but we’ll wait for an official announcement.

As a reminder, the Moto G Plus starts at $229 in the U.S., so expect these new phones to be even more affordable when they launch.
