Moto C & Moto C Plus Smartphones with Android 7.0 Nougat Officially Launched


After a series of many leaks and revelations, the Lenovo-owned Motorola on Tuesday officially announced the most awaited and talked mid-range smartphones - the Moto C and Moto C Plus in a blog post on company's official website.

Currently, the phone will hit only selective markets such as Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific. The device is also expected to ship with a rather large 5,000 mAh battery. It will feature a 5.5-inch 720p HD display, and under the hood we are looking at a MediaTek MT6737M chipset clocked at 1.3GHz with a quad-core processor.

The handset is expected to arrive with a 2GB of RAM and 16GB expandable internal memory and of course, we don't know up to what it expandable. Both versions also have 2-megapixel front-facing cameras.

It sports a 5-inch display with FWVGA (854 x 480 pixels) resolution. And what's more, they both pack Android 7.0 Nougat. Unlike the other low-priced smartphones, we don't see any major customizations or the inclusion of bloatware apps.

In terms of photography, the C Plus has an upper hand with its 8 mega pixel rear camera, they all use the same 2 mega pixel shutter for front camera purposes. The phones will definitely be cheap though, with the 3G version of Moto C starting at €89 with 1GB RAM/8GB storage, and the 4G option starting at €99 with 1GB RAM/8GB storage.

Coming to Moto E series, the Moto E4 Plus has been leaked in silver and gold colour variants. Thanks to this, the battery life of the Moto C Plus will be longer than the one of the C, even though it has a higher resolution display. If a previously leaked rumour is to be believed, Moto Z2 along with the Moto Z2 Play and Z2 Force will launch on June 8.

Meanwhile, LG with the G6 can continue to boast having one of the best rear dual camera setups in a smartphone, with both lens now serving as the main camera. While the P3DN listing doesn't reveal anything about the phone's software, earlier rumors have suggested that the device will have Android Nougat pre-installed. According to the company, the full charge on this device should last up to 30 hours.
