Moto C Plus Specifications
Moto C Plus sports a 5-inch display with a HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It is powered by a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB storage with a microSD card slot with 128GB expandable storage support. The phone features an 8MP rear-facing camera and 2MP selfie camera with LED flash.
The phone runs on Google’s latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, and supports 4G/LTE connectivity. Moto C Plus comes in a variety of colour options, Metallic Cherry, Fine Gold, and Starry Black. The device also boasts a 4,000mAh battery, which should last a day or two depending upon your actual usage.
Both Moto C Plus and Moto C don’t look different from each other in terms of design. However, there is difference between these two phones when it comes to screen resolution, rear camera, and battery. The budget Moto C has a 5-inch FWVGA (854×480) display compared to the HD resolution one on the Moto C Plus. Moto C also has a much smaller 2350 mAh battery, and gets a 5MP rear camera.
Moto C is priced at Rs 5,999, and thus aimed at more first-time Android users. Given the Moto C Plus sports a bigger battery, better screen resolution and camera, the price of Moto C Plus is higher. It launched at Euros 119, which is around Rs 8000 plus on conversion, though Motorola has priced this aggressively in India.
Moto C Plus joins the long list of new budget Android smartphones in the market. The advantage for Motorola is that its phones are running the latest Android Nougat compared to the competition like Xiaomi, etc, which are still on Marshmallow.
