Moto C and C Plus: Smartphone essentials with rock-bottom pricing

Being entry-level smartphones, the Moto C and C Plus have a polycarbonate micro-textured rear. The Moto X 2017 has now been spotted in FCC Listings as Moto XT1766. Here, we've got the leak of Moto's entire lineup for the year 2017 in the form of a presentation slide which seems to be for the company officials. The new Moto Z Force on the other hand, will retain the same ShatterShield display as its predecessor but add support for 1 Gigabit LTE networks. The information available about this phone was pretty scarce until now, however, we have come across some new details regarding the same, today.

Finally, we have the Z line, Motorola's new line of flagship grade smartphones. The Mods, which are modular attachments for extra features, were introduced with last year's Moto Z, and Motorola has indicated in the past that it will continue to invest in these. Other features will include 3D glass and SmartCam. Under this new series, there will be Moto C and Moto C Plus and the leak suggests a 5-inch FWVGA display with 4G support for Moto C and 5-inch HD display with 4,000mAh battery for Moto C Plus. The biggest change is the 4000 mAh battery capacity inside this phone. The Moto C Plus starts at €119.

Rumours have the new Moto Z2 Play being powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The Plus variant offers the services of an 8-megapixel main camera with LED flash, as well as a 2-megapixel self-portrait shooter.

The only "issue", if you can call it that, is that Motorola / Lenovo doesn't appear to have any immediate plans to bring the devices to the US. The two phone being Moto Z Play and Moto Z Force, the Moto Z Play is going to be a basic one with 5.5-inch full HD display and Moto Mods.

The picture itself is quite descriptive and self-explanatory: the Moto family has now grown to 5 letters, with the Z seemingly residing at the top of the hierarchy through its "unlimited capabilities". There is also the mention of gigabit LTE for the Z Force which means that it will run on a Snapdragon 835 as it is the only chipset now that has the X20 modem. Both devices have fingerprint scanners below their displays, and LED flashes for their front cameras.
