Moto C2, C2 Plus Renders Leaked
Lenovo-owned Motorola recently launched new devices in its G and E series of smartphones. The company has had a lot of success with budget smartphones like the Moto G5 Plus, Moto E4 and more. In 2017, Motorola launched the Moto C and Moto C Plus, two very affordable smartphones at a starting price of Rs 4795. The second iteration of the C series, expected to launch soon, the Moto C2 and C2 Plus have been leaked.
According to the renders, the Moto C2 and C2 Plus will have a design very similar to the Moto E4, which was launched last year. The C2 won’t have a fingerprint sensor while the Moto C2 Plus will have a front-facing home button which will house the fingerprint sensor. The design language is similar to last year’s Moto smartphone which means we won’t see an 18:9 aspect ratio here. The bezels are also thick all around the display.
Considering the price point of the two smartphones, the images do reveal possibly well-built devices. The back of both the smartphones house a single camera with an LED flash. Interestingly enough, the front-facing camera has an LED flash as well. This has also become increasingly common these days although it does seem like an add-on rather than a necessity.
Apart from the design, the renders do not reveal anything else. The previous Moto C smartphones ran on MediaTek chipsets and we expect the same with the new generation. It will be interesting to see if the Moto C2 will be an Android Go device, considering the Moto C had 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. Apart from the Nokia 1, there aren’t many Android Go smartphones available in India.
Xiaomi’s Redmi 5A, which is priced at Rs 5999 was the 5th bestselling smartphone of Q1 of 2018 and the C2 smartphones will have a stiff competition from other budget smartphones in the highly congested Indian market. Motorola is yet to release the recently launched Moto G6 and E5 series in India. This means the launch of the Moto C2 and C2 Plus could be saved for the third or fourth quarter of 2018.
