Motorola Moto C To Slot Below Moto E?

Do you like the Motorola Moto E? Its combination of great specs and low price have made it a great phone to buy. However, latest reports suggest that Motorola is working on another budget smartphone. Currently known as the Moto C, the smartphone may slot below the Moto E. But why do we say that? Take a look at Motorola’s naming convention – Moto E, Moto G, Moto M, Moto Z. Going by that logic, Moto C is expected to slot in below Moto E. Read on to find out more about Motorola Moto C price, expected launch date, specifications, camera, variants and more:

Motorola Moto C Price in India

Price (expected) Rs 6,500 – Rs 7,500

The Motorola Moto C has to be priced competitively. Motorola currently sells the Moto E Power, a derivative of third generation Moto E for Rs 7,499. With new smartphone prices expected to go up, the fourth-gen Moto E may cost Rs 8,000 or even more. If Moto C has to gain traction in budget smartphone segment, Motorola will have to be price it close to Moto E but position it as per a different target audience.

Motorola Moto C Launch Date

Launch Date (expected) Later first half/Early second half of 2017

Motorola has not revealed a launch date yet but a recent photo reveals the device alongside another Motorola smartphone. The point to take note of here is that this device may already be testing in different markets. A Motorola smartphone was recently certified in Russia breaing model number XT1750. A launch date in the later half of first half or early second half of 2017 seems plausible.

Motorola Moto C Specifications

Processor 1.4GHz octa-core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 430
RAM 2GB
Internal Storage 16GB (expandable up to 32GB)
Display Size 5.2-inch, HD resolution
OS Android 7.0 Nougat
Dual SIM Yes

While the Moto C is not expected to come with Snapdragon 435 chip, it does not need it. The Snapdragon 430 chip is quite capable. With Motorola utilising stock Android 7.0 Nougat, expect the Moto C to run smoothly. We expect Motorola to offer 16GB internal storage on the Moto C as anything less will be useless on this smartphone.

Motorola Moto C Camera

Primary Camera 8-megapixel with flash
Front Camera 5-megapixel

Camera is one aspect of a phone today’s buyer does not want to compromise on. If Motorola wants to garner more share in the budget segment, it will have to give Moto C nice optics at least on paper. By our guess, 8-megapixel for rear camera and 5-megapixel for front sound nice. Whether Motorola goes with them or not is yet to be seen.

Motorola Moto C Battery

Battery Size 3000mah
Fast Charging Yes

An expectation of seeing 3000mAh battery on the Moto C is valid. Users like to use their phones for longer hours. Having a large battery in a smartphone at least solves the issue of how buyers look at a phone from this standpoint. If Moto C comes with Turbo Charging, prospective buyers will be really happy. A big battery with fast charging is a combination nobody can ignore.

Motorola Moto C Features

  • Rear-facing speaker
  • Polycarbonate/metal body
  • HD Display
  • Twist for camera
  • Android 7.0 Nougat
  • Turbo Charging
  • Dual SIM

Customers buy budget smartphones for their value-for-money quotient. If Motorola is able to deliver on that and throw in a few features such as Twist for Camera, the Moto C will find a lot of buyers. Let’s wait for more on the Motorola Moto C, especially from Motorola’s end as that will give us a better idea of what to expect from the smartphone.
