Lenovo will be announcing the availability of the MOTO C Plus in India in a media event on the coming Monday. The company had revealed the MOTO C range last month and launched the base MOTO C in country earlier this month. The C range of handsets are going to be the cheapest Motorola handsets, a mantle originally held by the MOTO E range.
The MOTO C Plus was revealed with a price tag of €119 (~₹8,300) last month in the original Motorola Press Release. The MOTO C range of handsets is targeted at first time smartphone users and as stated earlier are the cheapest smartphones released by the company.
Being the cheapest smartphone does not mean that Motorola has skimped on the internals in anyway, the MOTO C Plus comes with a MediaTek MT6737 chipset at its heart. Complemented with 1 GB/2 GB of RAM coupled with 16 GB of internal storage which is expandable via microSD card (up to 128 GB). The front of the smartphone is dominated by a 5.0-inch HD (720 x1280) IPS panel based display. For the rear camera Motorola has provisioned the smartphone with an 8-megapixel sensor with a f/2.2 aperture, pixels measuring 1.12µm, autofocus and an LED flash. For selfie duties and video calling, the smartphone features a 2-megapixel sensor up front coupled with a LED flash. Keeping all this hardware powered is a 4000mAh battery unit, on the OS front the MOTO C Plus is shipped with a close to stock version of Android v.7.1.1, Nougat with support for MOTO Actions.
Motorola has decided to design all their hardware from a common template thus the MOTO C Plus follows the general contours of its elder siblings. The front is dominated by the display with substantial bezels all around. The forehead of the smartphone features the earpiece flanked by the selfie camera and forward firing LED while the chin features the capacitive touch controls for manipulating the UI. Flip the handset over and you see the camera module up top and the speaker grill at the bottom.
