Update: The Moto C Plus is now available for purchase in India.
After a few months of rumors and speculation, Lenovo has finally taken the wraps off of the ultra-affordable Moto C and Moto C Plus. But just how cheap is the phone? Well, the Moto C starts at $97.
For that money, you obviously can’t expect anything too fancy, but the phones are actually quite powerful for the price. Not all the details of the phones have been unveiled just yet, but we do have a pretty good look at the design, as well as some of the specs under the hood. We now also have some info regarding availability of the devices — the Moto C Plus is now available in India for as little as 6,000 rupees, or $110, and is available from Flipkart.
Let’s start with the Moto C. The device comes with a 2,350mAh battery, as well as a MediaTek quad-core processor. There are two variants of the Moto C — a 3G version and a 4G version — and both come with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. The rear-facing camera sits at 5 megapixels, while the front-facing shooter offers 2 megapixels, and the phone is available in four different colors: cherry, white, gold, and black. The device comes with Android Nougat.
The Moto C Plus ups the stakes a little with a 4,000mAh battery, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. The rear-facing camera increases to a much nicer 8 megapixels, and the phone offers a MicroSD card slot to expand on that storage. It also boasts a 5-inch HD display, and it offers Android Nougat, the latest and greatest version of Google’s Android.
Don’t expect to see the phones in North America — the phones will launch in Latin America, Europe, and the Asian Pacific region.
