Moto C and Moto C Plus will be Motorola's cheapest smartphones yet

Earlier today, we saw an unannounced Motorola smartphone that's supposed to be called Moto C. It looks like this is, indeed, the handset's name, and, according to Venture Beat, we're also going to get a Moto C Plus.

Reportedly, the Moto C and Moto C Plus are made for first-time smartphone users, and will be Motorola Mobility's cheapest smartphones to date (though there's no word on their exact prices).

Both the Moto C and Moto C Plus  run Android 7 Nougat, and sport 5-inch displays with different pixel resolutions: 854 x 480, and 1280 x 720, respectively. The two devices are powered by quad-core MediaTek processors, and feature LTE connectivity, although the Moto C will also have a 3G-only model.

The Moto C Plus - pictured above - offers 1 GB or 2 GB of RAM (depending on region), 16 GB of expandable internal storage space, 8 MP and 2 MP cameras (rear and front) with LED flashes, and a very generous 4000 mAh battery. Given the phone's modest specs and screen, this battery should last for quite a long time on a single charge.

The Moto C will only offer 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB or 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2350 mAh battery. As for cameras, the handset should have a 5 MP rear one, and a 2 MP front-facing one, once again with LED flashes.

For now, it's not clear where the Moto C and Moto C Plus will be sold, so we don't know if they're going to be officially released in the US. Nevertheless, Motorola will likely announce something about this in the near future. Stay tuned!

Are you sure you're not talking about internal storage space and not expandable storage? Why would they have only 8 or 16GB of expandable storage when almost any phone has expandable storage limits in the TB range? Now if those numbers were for internal storage with additional expandable storage capability, that'd make more sense.

It's expandable storage space, as in 16 GB of on-board memory that can be expanded via microSD.

The specs on the C Plus are actually deccent. They look nice too, nothing crazy, just modern-simple. I can always use another back-up to put on the pile if the price is right.
