With the return of the Play series, one would have thought that meant no Moto C series this year. It appears that won’t be the case as renders of the Moto C2 and Moto C2 Plus have surfaced online.
The Moto C series was first introduced last year as the cheapest Motorola phones in the 2017 lineup. They launched with entry-level specs similar to what you will find on Android Go devices announced this year.
The renders of the Moto C2 and C2 Plus show slight changes in design and features but since there is no info on specs, we can’t confirm if the internals have been upgraded.
For the second-gen Moto C series, Lenovo has retained the polycarbonate body of their predecessors. However, the rear camera has been redesigned though it is still in a circular housing.
Up in front, the displays have 16:9 aspect ratios with thick bezels on all sides. The Plus now has a fingerprint scanner on the chin but both models are sporting LED flashes at the top for brighter selfies.
There is no info regarding when Motorola will announce the Moto C2 and Moto C2 Plus or if it will even do so. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that when they launch, they won’t be getting updated to Android P. The Moto C has remained on Android Nougat since its launch.
