Moto C with 3G & 4G variants coming soon – Expected Specs

Lenovo-owned company, Motorola seems to be clinging to the spotlight lately. It all began when the company released a teaser for some of its upcoming devices on its 44th anniversary, now, rumours are rife about two Motorola devices to be released in the offing; the Moto C and the Moto C plus. Based on leaked images and specifications, it is safe to say that both smartphones are budget smartphones and should both feature front cameras with LED Flash.

The Moto C could come in two variations; a 3G and 4G model with both featuring slight disparities in phone specs. Below is a review of the device’s rumoured specs and since the device has not been officially announced, it would be wise not to take it at face value.

Motorola Moto C Specifications, Review and Highlights

Moto C Leaks

The Moto C device is aimed at the ultra-affordable smartphone category and its low-end specs do well enough to assert this claim. The company would be hoping the Moto C can replicate the success of the Original Moto E device which is another of its ultra-affordable smartphones.

The budget smartphone is expected to feature a 5-inch screen setup with a pixel resolution of 480 * 854. Its design offers something quite simple as a plastic build seems to be quite enough for a smartphone of its calibre.

Its camera setup offers a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and the front-facing camera also possesses same LED flash despite the fact that it’s just a 2MP camera. With the selfie trend still sweeping across the world, it doesn’t really sound like a surprise, at least a 2MP camera with LED flash should be able to deliver nice selfies.

With a 1GB RAM and either of an 8GB or 16GB internal storage which is also expandable using a microSD, the Moto C will reportedly feature a 32-bit 1.3GHz quad-core processor for its 3G model and a 64-bit 1.1GHz quad-core processor for its 4G model both being MediaTek chipsets.

Running on the Android 7.0 OS (Nougat) out of the box, the budget device is magnanimous enough to accommodate a 2350mAh battery offering users an impressive battery performance. We hear again that the Moto C device could come at a very low cost and if that be true, then we could be looking at Motorola’s cheapest smartphone.
