Lenovo unveils ultra-affordable Moto C, Moto C Plus smartphones

Posted May 18, 2017

Perhaps the most significant difference between the Moto C and the Moto C Plus is the 4000mAh capacity battery inside the latter. The leaks of smartphones usually happen when the device is announced and only one at a time.

They're the company's humblest mobile devices, "packed with features that give new smartphone users the battery life, performance and speed they need". The Moto C and Moto C Plus will be offered in Pearl White, Starry Black, Metallic Cherry, and Fine Gold as of this spring and will officially launch in Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Motorola said, without providing an exact release date for either device. However, it might only launch one device under the Moto X series. The series has two phones- Z play and Z force. You can see the leaked image below.

Stepping up to the Moto C Plus, buyers will get a slightly higher resolution screen - 1280 x 720 - and an 8MP rear-facing camera. Seems like there just some advanced versions of the Moto G5 and G5 Plus. It will also have a 2.5D glass and fingerprint sensor in tow.

The "G" series is dubbed "Unlimited Premium". It will come with a 5.2 inch Full HD display, curved edges and also a SmartCam. It is interesting to note how Chinese website Baidu in a video suggested that the Moto X4 smartphone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and 3,800mAh battery.

Other Motorola smartphones coming in 2017 are the Moto E and Moto E Plus, Moto GS and Moto GS+, and the Moto Z Play and Moto Z Force. Never before has Motorola released an S-line, not in any of its series.

Jumping straight to the specifications, the Moto C Plus features a 5-inch HD display and is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor along with Mali-T720 GPU.

For the past few months, we had a hint of Motorola's plans. Or else, it might be a newer chipset. The model numbers are XT1770, XT1772, XT1773, XT1724, XT1725, XT1726, and XT1721 respectively. Both the devices (both the variants of Moto C) runs on Android Nougat OS and even the RAM of the devices are same which is of 1GB.
