Motorola Moto C Officially Unveiled, India Launch Soon!

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

Moto C Price (expected) Rs 7,000
Moto C Plus Price (expected) Rs 8,500

The Motorola Moto C has been announced. It will come in three variants – 3G, 4G and Plus. However, India is expected to get the 4G and Plus variants only. Also, the price seems to be a bit on the higher side. However, expect them to come down a bit when India launch happens. After all, there needs to be space for Moto E as well, if Motorola plans to keep the phone in its India lineup.

Motorola Moto C Launch Date

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

Motorola Moto C has been revealed internationally. However, that is no indication of how soon this phone will come to India. However, going by how Motorola goes about its business, expect the Moto C to come to India real quick. Our timeline above is an optimistic one as Motorola may bring these devices to India as early as June.

Motorola Moto C Specifications

Yes, few specs between Motorola Moto C and Moto C Plus are different. That’s okay because the base Moto C may not be to everyone’s liking. So, giving those people a more powerful option will make more sense. Expect these devices to not be too far apart in terms of performance as the changes are not that huge between Moto C and Moto C Plus.

Motorola Moto C Camera

Front Camera 2-megapixel

The differences between the Motorola Moto C and Moto C Plus continue in camera department too. However, before you make up your mind, do note that camera performance is all about camera software. So, if the camera performance of a phone is not up to the mark, a software update can fix the same.

Motorola Moto C Battery

Battery Size 2350mAh/4000mAh (Moto C Plus)
Fast Charging No

This is one major area of difference between the Motorola Moto C and Moto C Plus. The difference in battery size will also result in battery life differences. So, for power-hungry users, the Moto C Plus is definitely going to be a better buy.
