There is no denying that Motorola’s Moto G and Moto E phones have made big strides in developing markets because of their comparatively bloat free OS and cheap pricing.
It looks like the Lenovo-owned company is prepping to launch a new cheap Android Phone in Indian smartphone market. The phone will go on stores on Monday and the company has named the phone Moto C Plus.
The phone will have a 5-Inch High Definition display and it will be powered by a 1.3GHz Quad Core MediaTek MT6737 SoC. The memory choices are a bit odd though, there will be 2 variants of the phone in which the first one will ship with just 1 GB of RAM and the other one will come with 2 GB RAM.
Storage on both variants will be 16 GB and users will be able to extend the memory using an external microSD card.
Motorola has added an 8-megapixel rear camera that has a f/2.2 aperture and 71 degrees of field of view. The rear camera has a flash and autofocus too. Leaks have suggested that C Plus will also have a 2-megapixel front facing camera.
Considering the phone will cost a rather humble 5,999 INR (Almost $90) the specs are not groundbreaking, however, the Moto C Plus will pack a 4000mAh battery, which is definitely a lot more than some of the current gen flagship phones in the market.
Moto C Plus will run on Android 7.0 and the phone also has a 3.5 MM Audio Jack at the top. Unlike other Moto Phones, the company has added some capacitive buttons to the front instead of using on-screen ones.

Should you buy the new Moto C Plus? If your budget is really tight, sure, but keep in mind that the phone’s SoC and RAM will be a limiting factor. On the other hand, the phone may be a good option for people who have never bought a smartphone before. Something that Motorola has already said about.
