There’s no official information yet from Motorola, so take this news with a pinch of salt. Motorola might announce the phones next month alongside the flagship Moto Z2 and entry-level Moto E4, E4 Plus.

The Moto C series can be pitched against the Xiaomi Mi 4A and other entry-level smartphones from manufacturers like Intex, Swipe, and Karbonn.
