Moto C and C Plus: Smartphone essentials with rock-bottom pricing

Adjust Comment Print

The 2015 Moto X series had three versions of the phone, including the Moto X Force, which has a shatterproof display. Before to the Moto C series, the Moto E devices use to be most affordable Motorola smartphones.

It was only a day back that the entire list of upcoming Motorola smartphones was leaked in a presentation. Well, there appears to be very good news as famous leaker Evan Blass has shown a photo of the phone lineup planned by Lenovo this year.

Lenovo is set to launch two devices under each of its smartphone series, except for the "X" series, which will just have the Moto X 2017 edition. The Moto X 2017 series smartphone could be priced slightly higher than the current G-series phones.

The leaked image not only confirms the making of the Motorola phones, but also reveals the name and specifications of each one of them. The company will reportedly introduce two new devices under each series. The Moto Z Play is already out there and Moto Z Force is on its way. The Moto C will come with a 5-inch FWVGA display while the Moto C Plus will come with a 5 inch HD display along with a 4000 mAh battery.

As per the aforementioned leaked image, the company could also launch Moto G 5S and Moto G 5S Plus which would succeed the recently launched Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. It also comes with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage but is fuelled by a beefy 4000mAh battery.

After having taken a year off in 2016, it looks like the Moto X brand might make its return in the near future. The new Moto Z Force on the other hand, will retain the same ShatterShield display as its predecessor but add support for 1 Gigabit LTE networks.

The rest of the specs are oddly left out, while official Moto C details merely include Metallic Cherry, Pearl White, Fine Gold and Starry Black colors, a "long-lasting" 2350 mAh battery (yeah, right), unnamed quad-core processor, 5 and 2MP cameras.

Moto gS has a 5.2-inch full HD display with a metal body.

Moto X4 is also said to come with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.

We've been hearing quite a bit about upcoming Motorola devices: just yesterday we talked about the existence of a Moto X4, which signaled a return to the flagship that preceded the Moto Z line of previous year. The phone comes in two variants, one that supports 3G, while another one will support 4G.

The "e" series phones will consist of "e" and "e plus".
