Entry-level Moto C receives its Bluetooth certification
Earlier this month, we told you about the Moto C and Moto C Plus. This will apparently be a new budget line for the Moto handsets, designed for the first-time smartphone user. With that in mind, it isn't terribly surprising that these will be the cheapest smartphones ever offered by Motorola, and that covers a lot of territory. Despite several leaks and word that the phone has been certified in Russia, there apparently is some time left before the handsets are unveiled.
For example, today we can tell you that the the Moto C (XT1750) has been certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. The certifications by the Bluetooth SIG and the Wi-Fi Alliance are often the first proof that we get to show you confirming that a particular smartphone exists. The certification for the Moto C not only tells us that the phone is real and will offer Bluetooth 4.2 capabilities, it also will be powered by a MediaTek chipset.
Previously leaked specs for the Moto C include a 5-inch display with a 480 x 854 resolution (FWVA). Sure, Motorola has used this resolution before. It was employed on 2009's Motorola DROID, the Motorola DROID 2 (2010), Motorola Defy (2010) and the Motorola DROID X (2010). So you see how Motorola can get away with selling the Moto C so cheaply. A Media Tek chipset is under the hood with a quad-core CPU. 1GB of RAM is inside along with 8GB/16GB of native storage. A 5MP camera adorns the back of the unit, and there is a 2MP snapper in front for selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 2350mAh battery, and there are variants with 3G and 4G connectivity. Android 7.0 is pre-installed.
The Moto C Plus features the same specs as the Moto C except for a higher 720 x 1280 HD resolution on that 5-inch screen. Depending on where you buy your Moto C Plus, it will contain 1GB or 2GB of RAM, along with 16GB of native expandable storage. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 8MP, and a large 4000mAh battery gives you power lasting longer than just one day.
While we don't expect to see the Moto C line in the U.S., new smartphone users in other regions of the world will eventually have a pair of Moto phones designed just for them. And once they get a taste of that rumored 4000mAh juicer powering the Moto C4 Plus, those novice smartphone users might end up spoiled for the rest of their smartphone using lives.
