Motorola has launched its budget smartphone Moto C Plus at an event in New Delhi today. Like its sibling, Moto C, the smartphone from the new C series is tagged with an affordable price of Rs. 6,999 and available exclusively on Flipkart.
To recall, both Moto C and Moto C Plus were officially introduced in May in Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific. Both the smartphones look similar in terms of design language. Talking about the specifications of the Moto C Plus, the device sports a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display. The phone is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6737 quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. The device comes with 16GB inbuilt storage, which is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.
In terms of imaging, the Moto C Plus features an 8-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, autofocus and LED flash. The front selfie camera has a 2-megapixel resolution, but Moto has also included a front facing flash for better selfies. The Moto C Plus packs a big 4000mAh removable battery and Motorola claims that the battery in the new handset will last for up to 30 hours on a single charge. It will also ship with 10W rapid charger for quick charging support. Connectivity options on the phone include- Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone will support 4G VoLTE and hence, will be compatible with Reliance Jio.
