Last year, Motorola had launched Moto C and Moto C Plus with entry-level specs. Recent reports suggest that the Lenovo-owned company is now prepping up to debut the successor Moto C2 smartphone. Last month, a Motorola phone with XT1920 model number was approved by Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). It is speculated that this phone would be arriving in the market as Moto2. A regional variant of the same phone that has a model number of XT1920-19 has been approved by Brazil based National Telecommunications Agency (ANATEL). Now that EEC and ANATEL bodies have certified Moto C2, it seems that its launch may not be far away.


The ANATEL certification has revealed only few specs of the XT1920-19 Motorola phone. The handset supports dual-SIM capabilities and 4G LTE connectivity. Through the EEC certification it has been revealed that the handset will be featuring 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of native storage. These specs suggest that it may arrive as an Android Go phone.

The Moto C2’s EEC certification had also revealed that it measures 147.88 x 71.22mm and it will be housing a 2,000mAh or 2,1000mAh battery. This indicates that the handset could be equipped with a 5-inch or 5.2-inch display.
