Lenovo backed Moto is all set to launch a budget or cheaper variant of the Moto G5. The device’s name is inspired from the iPhone 5C, and named as Moto C (thanks to @evleaks), a new budget lineup from the OEM.
In terms of design, the device looks identical to their successor Moto G5, however, instead of metal built, the device offers polycarbonate (user replaceable) shells, like earlier generation Moto G series. This is the first Moto device, that offers capacitive navigation keys, instead of on-screen keys. Lets travel through the tech catalogue for further understanding.
This device is made for the emerging markets like India, so it is priced under $100 ($60~$90), without any contract. The Moto C will be powered by entry-level Mediatek Quad-Core SoC, paired with 1 GB LPDDR3 RAM and 4 GB on-board storage.
Looking at the basic specs, one can say that, this device is made for the people, who use smartphone for the first time, with basic usage like net surfing and social media. Though, one can play small and non graphic intensive games. The device offer connectivity features like 4G LTE along VoLte. In terms of display, the device is equipped with a 5 inch 480 x 854 px, so this one is not the sharpest screen around the corner.
The camera department offers 5 MP main camera as well as 2 MP selfie camera, both sensors get their own LED flash, for low lightening condition, with 720p video recording capability. The device offers 2300 mAh user replaceable (Li-Ion) battery, which is not expected to support fast charging.
As the name suggests, the device will run on the latest version of Android Nougat, with no customization. So, the user experience remains the same from Pixel user to Moto C user, which is an interesting move by the OEM.
