New Moto C and Moto C Plus will compete in the low-end market

Lenovo takes another shot at the midrange category with their new Moto C and Moto C Plus, the two devices are literally cheap but duly appreciate the specs they came with.

After they previously attempted with the Moto E that was priced at 129 USD, things didn’t quite turn out the way they expected, they are back with Moto C devices.

Moto C Plus happens to be the leader amongst the duo in terms of spec write up, it has a clearer display and a 4G network option. Moto C supports only 3G network but there is a 4G network version of the C variant.

They all use a 5.0 inches screen with their resolutions set at 854 by 480 px and 720 by 1280 px for the Moto C and C Plus respectively.

The Moto C sports an internal storage of 8GB and 1GB worth of RAM, the C Plus also uses 1GB RAM but there is a 2GB RAM version if you feel 1GB is too small. Internal storage in the Moto C Plus is 16GB, Micro SD card can be used in the devices for extra storage space.

In terms of photography, the C Plus has an upper hand with its 8 mega pixel rear camera, they all use the same 2 mega pixel shutter for front camera purposes. 5 mega pixel rear camera is available on the Moto C.

The three devices run on Android 7.0 Nougat, the C Plus and the 3G version of the Moto C uses a 1.3 GHz quad core processor with mediaTek chipset while the 4G version is powered by 1.1 GHz quad core processor also with a mediaTek chipset.

The C Plus houses a 4,000 mAh battery and the Moto C uses 2350 mAh battery. The devices are available in White, Black, Cherry and Gold colors in a dimension of 145.5 x 73.6 x 9.0 mm (154g) for the Moto C and 144.0 x 72.3 x 10.0mm (162g) for the C Plus.

The Moto C will have a price tag of 97 USD which shakes off approximately N38,000 in Nigeria while the C Plus would be sold for 130 USD, about N52,000 with the current exchange rate in Nigeria.

What do you make of this move by Lenovo and their Moto C phones?
