Moto C Leaks; Will Serve as a Entry Level Device
The Moto G5 Plus is an excellent, affordable smartphone with the latest Android software. But Lenovo is making an even more aggressive push for customers on a slim budget, according to VentureBeat. The company is planning to release the Moto C and Moto C Plus, two entry-level Android 7.0 Nougat handsets with the specs to match their presumably low prices.
The Moto C does not feature a fingerprint scanner, but that’s to be expected from a smartphone that will likely be sold at a low price – maybe around $100. The handset seems to have a front-facing camera with LED flash, in addition to a regular rear camera (also with an LED flash). The phone should run Android 7 Nougat out of the box, and may sport a screen of around 5 inches. For now, that’s all we know about this device.
All models of both phones will be powered by MediaTek processors, another step back from the Snapdragon 625 that’s proven to be an superb performer in the Moto Z Play and Moto G5. Aside from the screen, battery size will seemingly be the other significant differentiator between the C and C Plus: the former will have a 2350mAh battery, with the C Plus bumping that all the way up to 4000mAh.
Alongside the Moto C, later this year, Motorola Mobility should also announce a Moto Z2, plus a Moto E4 series, though probably not at the same time.
