Motorola Smartphones Lineup For 2017 Leaked

Posted May 17, 2017

After toying with the idea of grouping models under two different names in 2016 to signify entry-level or premium positioning, Lenovo appears to have made a decision to keep the Moto "brand" and to use a series of letters (C, E, G, X and Z) to identify product series and quality levels. For those who don't know, Motorola Smartphones Company will launch to Moto C series phones.

Motorola, in a classic move, has unveiled a pair of budget smartphones - Moto C and Moto C Plus.

The Moto C Plus price is set at £109.99 (around $130, AU$190). While the Moto C Plus was announced by the company at a price tag of Euro 119 (around Rs 8,300). The 64-bit MediaTek SoC on this comes coupled with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. The 5-inch display has a resolution of 854×480, there's a MediaTek MT6580m 64-bit quad-core 1.1GHz processor under the hood, a microSD slot, and it's unlocked to support both GSM and CDMA networks.

The Lenovo-owned Motorola had put its interests for Z branding above the X branding, resulting in the absence a Moto X device for quite a time. Moto C and Moto C Plus will be available beginning this spring in various countries across Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

The Motorola Moto X 2017 version is arriving very soon. In the United Kingdom, you'll be able to pick up the Moto C at Tesco, Carphone, and O2. The Moto GS will reportedly have a 5.2-inch display, which is as large as the current Moto G5 Plus's, while the Moto GS Plus will feature an even larger, 5.5-inch display. This smartphone will also come with 2x SIM card slots, one of which can also be used as a microSD card slot for additional media storage.

In terms of specifications both the Moto C and Moto C have similar specifications and run on Android Nougat operating system.

The Moto C is expected to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and comes in Metallic Cherry, Pearl White, Fine Gold, and Starry Black, with different markets getting different colours.
