Lenovo unveils ultra-affordable Moto C, Moto C Plus smartphones

First leaked last month, Motorola today has unveiled two new budget smartphones: the Moto C and Moto C Plus.

From other leaks, there were seven more phones from Moto beginning with the model numbers XT which have received Wi-Fi certification from Wi-Fi Alliance as seen on the report from MobileXpose. The upcoming phone promises an exciting new experience from Motorola and a product presentation in China managed to offer us some clues on what the X4 will have to offer.

According to the leak, Motorola will release no fewer than nine phones later this year, which will lead to a crowded lineup. An image was leaked by a leakster Evan Blass via Twitter which reveals the line-up of the 2017 Motorola smartphones - Z, X, g, e, and c. The Moto Z Play is already out there and Moto Z Force is on its way. It also highlights that the Moto E will come with 5-inch display along with 2.5D protection and a fingerprint scanner.

The good news is that the phone comes with a huge 4,000mAh battery, and there's a microSD card slot for expanding storage. The Moto C Plus with 1GB of RAM will retail for 119 Euros (Rs 8370). The Moto X 2017 has now been spotted in FCC Listings as Moto XT1766. The Moto C Plus too, features a 5.0-inch display, but the resolution gets a bump to HD. The Moto C 3G with 1GB RAM is priced at Euro 89, while the 4G variant comes with a price tag of Euro 99. Despite the dirt cheap price, both the phones feature a rather attractive design with a micro-textured plastic back cover, a camera ring on the back and off-screen capacitive buttons.

As for the boys, William rose two spots, replacing Mason as the third most popular name . The name Adonis just happens to be the number four fastest riser on the list for boys.

It is quite possible that the Moto X 2017 may come in different variants where a 16 GB variant will be a basic model. In other words, the Moto Z2 Play is shaping up as a slimmer and more powerful version of the Moto Z Play, but it may feature a less powerful battery to accommodate the slimmer build.

While Motorola has officially announced the Moto C and C Plus, screen size or resolution wasn't mentioned in the blog post where the announcement was made.

Moto has been a big hit in the segment of photo capturing with its highly efficient camera in all of its phones.

It's all in the rumor state at this point however, so it's best to take all leaks and rumors with a grain of salt for now.
