Motorola has launched the new Moto C in India priced at Rs 5,999. It is the first smartphone from the new Moto C series. The C Series is targeted at entry-level budget smartphone buyers.
It’ll be available in 2 colour options, Pearl White and Starry Black. The smartphone will be available online as well as Motorola is releasing it in leading stores, in over 100 cities.
Moto C series details were some days back and there is also a Moto C Plus phone. Though Motorola has just launched the Moto C in India for now, and C Plus may get launched at a later date.
The Moto C comes with a micro-textured plastic back cover. It has large circular camera dial like the Moto G5. The Moto C sports a 5-inch FWVGA (854×480) display. It is not the best display resolution in this range an HD screen would have been better.
Powering the Moto C is a tried and tested, MediaTek MT6737 SOC coupled with Mali T720 GPU and just 1 GB of RAM.
It comes with 16 GB of internal storage and offers micro-sd card support upto 32 GB.
The Moto C comes with 5 MP rear camera with digital zoom, Autofocus and single LED flash. The front has a humble 2 MP camera with fixed focus, to click selfies and do video calls.
The Moto C offers a 2350 mAH battery capacity. The smartphone has a 9 mm thickness and weighs 154 grams. That’s a bit thick considering the mediocre battery capacity.
Interestingly, it’s the first Motorola smartphone after a long time to sport capacitive buttons after the Motorola Droid Turbo (Gen 1).
I think the biggest highlight of the Moto C is the latest Android Nougat 7.0 version out of the box. A lot of mid-range phones are still coming with Android marshmallow, keeping things uncomplicated as far as OS modification goes, has allowed Motorola to push latest OS earlier compared to the heavily skinned OS on rival phones.
The Dual Sim smartphone comes with 4G LTE as well as VOLTE connectivity support to ensure it works with the Reliance JIO and other 4G network operators.
Motorola’s Managing Director, Mr Sudhin Mathur enlightened the media over the reason of this new series by saying that, “According to the reports fewer people are expected to upgrade to smartphones because of concerns over price, need and ability to use.” We see this as a huge opportunity for a brand like us to initiate the smartphone journey for feature phone users.”
Though the Moto C comes from a reliable brand like Motorola, at this price if they could have added 1 GB of more ram it would have become a great deal for entry-level smartphone buyers.
