Budget-friendly Moto C and Moto C Plus officially introduced, prices start at €89

7

Motorola has just taken the wraps off their new entry-level Android smartphones, the Moto C and Moto C Plus. Both devices were rumored for a couple of weeks now, so if you've been following our reports than you already know quite a bit about them.

Still, since they have just been made official, let's take a look at what's under their hood. First off, both smartphones ship with Android 7.0 Nougat on board.

The Moto C packs a 1.1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737M processor, whereas the Moto C Plus has a slightly more powerful 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737 CPU inside. The former includes 8GB of expandable storage and 1GB RAM, while the latter comes with 16GB of internal memory and 1GB RAM.

Furthermore, the Moto C Plus sports a decent 5-inch HD (720p) screen, while Moto C's display is of the same size but offers a lower FWVGA (480 x 854 pixels) resolution.



Even the camera is different depending on the model. The Moto C features a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a secondary 2-megapixel selfie snapper, whereas the Moto C Plus has a slightly better 8-megapixel shooter, along with a similar 2-megapixel selfie camera.

Another advantage that you'll get by purchasing the Moto C Plus over the Moto C is battery life. Motorola announced the Moto C Plus would be powered by a massive 4,000 mAh battery, and the Moto C will pack a much smaller 2,350 mAh battery inside.

As far as price goes, these are probably the cheapest Android smartphones launched by Motorola in a long time. The 3G version of Moto C will sell for just €89, while the 4G variant will be available for purchase for €99. The most expensive model, the Moto C Plus is priced to sell for €119.

Unfortunately, neither is set for a US release, but both smartphones will be launched in various markets across Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.
