Lenovo-owned Motorola earlier announced its Moto G6 series and is also preparing to launch next-gen Z series phone, the Moto Z3 Play. Now, the second generation of Moto C smartphones, the Moto C2 and Moto C2 Plus have appeared in online renders hinting their imminent release in upcoming days. The first ever renders give up a good look at the upcoming budget Moto C2 and C2 Plus smartphones. The second generation Moto C lineup closely resembles last year’s series overall with few noticeable design tweaks. Starting off the front, the budget smartphones stick with more traditional 16:9 displays with thick bezels surrounding them. This is in contrast to latest Moto smartphones series that come with trendy bezel-less design and tall displays.
The front panel design is similar on both Moto C2 and C2 Plus. Both the smartphones feature an in-ear speaker on the top of the display, alongside a selfie camera and LED flash. As mentioned, both the smartphones feature thick bezels on the front. While the Moto C2 houses Moto branding below the display, the Moto C2 Plus offers an oval-shaped fingerprint scanner. The Moto branding on the C2 Plus is placed above the display. These renders were first revealed by 91mobiles.
Moving on to the rear panels, both the devices have identical designs. The rear plastic shell is curved to the edges and is dominated by a large, circular camera module which retains the single camera sensor along with a dual-tone LED flash. Underneath the camera module is the Motorola batwing logo.
Furthermore, both the Moto C2 and C2 Plus come with a power button and volume rocker keys on the right side of the handsets. The devices also retain the 3.5mm headphone jack on the top while they will likely go with micro USB ports for charging purposes. The devices altogether resemble the last generation of Moto E4 and Moto C devices.
Aside from that, nothing is known about specifications, pricing, and availability at this point. Considering the first-gen Moto C lineup showed up in May 2017, it seems likely the Moto C2 and C2 Plus could make an official appearance before the end of June with a release possibly happening sometime in July.
