After numerous leaks and rumours, Lenovo finally made Moto C and C Plus phones official. Both the handsets fall under the affordable segment and will be sold across various regions of Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific this spring. The lower-end Moto C starts at $97, which translates roughly at Rs 6,250. The Moto C Plus, on the other hand, is priced at $130 (approximately Rs 8,370). Design-wise, both the handsets retain Moto’s traditional looks and boast of Metallic Cherry, Pearl White, Fine Gold and Starry Black colours.
Getting started, the Moto C comes in two variants: 3G and 4G. The company is unlikely to bring the 3G option in India, though. Specs-wise, it sports a 5-inch 480p display. The phone is powered by a 1.1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6580M processor coupled with Mali-400 GPU for graphics. It embraces 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory, along with a memory card slot for adding up to 32GB of additional storage. There is a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. It also packs a 2,350mAh removable battery.
The Moto C Plus, on the other hand, offers 5-inch 720p display. Powering the smartphone is a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor, a Mali-T720 GPU for graphics, and 1GB of RAM. It includes 16GB of internal memory, which can expand up to 32GB using a microSD card slot. In terms of optics, it sports an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera and a 2-megapixel selfie camera. Inside is also a big 4,000mAh battery. Both the handsets miss out on the fingerprint scanner, though.
