Motorola has enjoyed a lot of success at the lower end of the smartphone market, initially with the Moto G and then with the Moto E. This year we’ll be getting an even cheaper entry level product line with the all new C series. The first two devices in that range will be the Moto C and Moto C Plus, and we have renders and 360 videos of both in collaboration with OnLeaks.
First up the specs, which have already been leaked. Both Moto C models will be sold in gold, red, black and silver color options and both will run Android Nougat out of the box. They’re both packing 5-inch displays, but the Moto C squeezes in 854 x 480 pixels while the C Plus goes with 1,280 x 720 pixels.
They’re both using MediaTek chipsets, but this is where things get a little confusing. There’s a 3G and a 4G version of the Moto C (the red one in our renders), which will use a 32-bit quad-core SoC clocked at 1.3 GHz for the former and a 64-bit quad-core chipset clocked at 1.1 GHz for the latter. The Moto C Plus runs a 64-bit chipset clocked at 1.3 GHz.
All three devices support microSD card expansion, but the Moto C comes in both an 8 GB and 16 GB version while the Moto C Plus only comes with 16 GB. The Moto C has 1 GB of RAM, and the Moto C Plus has either 1 GB or 2 GB, depending on market. The Moto C measures 143.9 x 72 x 10mm and the Moto C Plus comes in at 145.5 x 73.5 x 9.1mm (10.2mm with camera bump).
