Motorola’s Ultra-Affordable Moto C and Moto C Plus Officially Announced; Aimed at First-Time Smartphone Buyers

After going through many leaks and rumours, Motorola has finally pulled the wraps off its ultra-affordable Moto C lineup. Under the new Moto C series, the company has announced two new products – Moto C and C Plus. Initially, it felt like Motorola is messing up with its product lineup, but the Lenovo-owned company is pretty clear about what it’s up to.


Motorola claims that the new C series is aimed at ‘first-time smartphone buyers.’ As it turns out, the pricing of the devices doesn’t justify the above claims or even earlier rumours. More on that in a bit. There’s not much to speak about the specifications of the phones either. I say this based on two aspects – firstly, we have already learned about the specs of both the handsets in earlier leaks and secondly, it’s that they don’t justify the asking price.

The Motorola Moto C flaunts a 5-inch FWVGA display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. Both the phones are powered by the same quad-core processor, but the Moto C has just 1GB of RAM and 8GB/16GB of internal storage. The smartphone rocks a 5MP rear camera along with a 2MP front-facing camera. It draws fuel from a small 2350mAh battery.

On the flip side, the Moto C Plus comes with the same 5-inch screen, but the resolution has been bumped to 720 x 1280 pixels. It also comes with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage but is fuelled by a beefy 4000mAh battery. Both the phones support dual SIM cards and come in Metallic Cherry, Pearl White, Starry Black, and Fine Gold colour options. Also, they run near stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. The C Plus features an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing camera with LED flash.

As speculated earlier, the Moto C comes in two variants- a 3G variant that costs 89 Euro (approx. Rs. 6250) and a 4G LTE variant carrying a price tag of 99 Euro (approx. Rs. 6950). The Moto C Plus will be available for 119 Euros (approx. Rs. 8400).

What do you think about their prices? Do make a note that the prices may vary and could bear a decreased price for the Indian market. Also, do check this space as there are more Motorola smartphone launches coming ahead.
