What to expect from Moto C and Moto C Plus?
Both the ‘C’ series phones are expected to come with 4G and VoLTE technology but, there will also be a 3G variant of Moto C. Moto C has recently received its Bluetooth certification and FCC clearance as reported by Devs-Lab.
Moto C Plus and Moto C are likely to be available in red, black, gold and silver color options and will run Android Nougat 7.0 out of the box. The devices will have a 5-inch display, with Moto C having 854×480 pixels while the C Plus goes with 1280×720 pixels. Moto C is expected to be launched in a 3G and a 4G variant while C plus will come only in a 4G variant.
All the variants support MicroSD card expansion. Moto C under the model number XT1750 will be running on a quad-core MediaTek MT6580 SoC coupled with 1GB or 2 GB of RAM(depending on the market) and 8 GB of internal storage. Moto C Plus under the model number XT1754 sports a newer MediaTek MT6737 quad-core SoC based on ARMv8 processor coupled 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. The Moto C has a 2,350 mAh battery and the C Plus packs a 4,000 mAh battery.
Camera and Design
All three have a front-facing flash with a 2 MP sensor, but the Moto C has a 5 MP sensor on the back while the C Plus steps that up to 8 MP. According to the leaked images one can tell that Moto C Plus has a slight camera bump on while the other does not. The Moto C measures 143.9 x 72 x 10mm and the C Plus comes in at 145.5 x 73.5 x 9.1mm (10.2mm with camera bump). Motorola keeps the circular camera housing for both devices as seen on other Moto devices. Both the devices have rear speakers with a micro-USB and a headphone jack at the top. The ‘C’ series also comes with a removable back which is similar to Motorola’s E series.
Moto C Plus
Motorola is expected to keep prices very low which can be predicted by looking at the plastic chassis.
