Lenovo unveils Moto C and Moto C Plus budget phones


A day after Motorola's 2017 road map was leaked, the company has officially unveiled the Moto C and Moto C Plus - two of the nine upcoming phones outed on the list. Considering how far along things appear to be and the fact that Motorola is starting to reveal the device to private audiences, a public launch is probably not too far away. If you don't know already, the Moto's "Z" series is famous for the Moto Mods with which you can customize the phone well.

We reported yesterday about Motorola's 2017 roadmap leak, and both, Moto C and Moto C Plus, were part of it. Let us take a quick look at both of them individually.

Locally, pricing and availability hasn't been announced, so we're not even sure if Moto will see these released here, but given the expected pricing of 99 Euros, it's possible this could be the start of a $150 phone locally, especially since the Moto E series is very hard to find. This phone has a 4000 mAh battery which Motorola suggests will last up to 30 hours on one full charge. The camera on the Moto E Plus will be 13MP camera.

As shown in the earlier leaks, the design of these smartphones point out that Motorola-owned by Lenovo is going with nearly the same design for all its offerings to be launched this year. As per the new leak, the Moto Z Play will come packed with a 5.5-inch full HD display, while on the other hand the Moto Z Force will be packed with ShatterShield technology, which will protect the device against any mechanical damage. The smartphone makers expect these smartphones will become the successors of Moto G5 and G5 Plus which are recently released. The Moto C Plus bestows a 5-inch display with HD 1280×720 pixel resolution. To be clear, the Z2 Force is the smartphone with black front and dual rear camera, while the Z2 Play is the one with white front and a single rear camera.

The Moto X line will be returning this year, with the X4 being the only new model in the X line this year.

The smaller of the two - the Moto C comes with a 5.0-inch FWVGA (854X480) display. It will also have the latest Snapdragon 660 SoC processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt memory. After Lenovo acquired, moto has rebranded itself and is getting into the market more aggressively than before.
