Motorola’s Moto family of smartphones includes the high-end Z, the mid-range G, the affordable E, and even the aging X. Now a new report claims that a new letter will soon be added to Moto’s alphabet.
Motorola is prepping two new Android smartphones known as the Moto C and Moto C Plus (shown above), according to VentureBeat. These phones are expected to be the most affordable Moto phones yet, though specific price points haven’t been given.
When it comes to specs, the standard Moto C is expected to offer a 5-inch 854x480 display, 1GB of RAM, 8/16GB of storage, a microSD slot, 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, and a 2350mAh battery. It’s said that there will be 3G and 4G versions of the Moto C, with the 3G model packing a 32-bit quad-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3GHz and the 4G variant offering a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek processor at 1.1GHz.
Meanwhile, the Moto C Plus will reportedly come equipped with a 5-inch 1280x720 display, 1/2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot, and a quad-core MediaTek processor. Also said to be included is an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing sensor, and a whopping 4000mAh battery.
Neither of these Moto C phones are going to blow you away with their spec lists, but that’s not the point of their existences. Instead, Moto and Lenovo want to offer ultra-affordable devices for budget phone shoppers and first-time smartphone buyers. We’ll have to wait until they’re official before we know exactly how much the Moto C phones will cost, but if you’re in the market for a super-affordable smartphone, you may want to keep an eye out for these devices.
