After launching the smartphone in May, Lenovo brand Motorola has officially launched the Moto C in India. The Moto C is part of the budget C series. The device has been priced at Rs. 5,999. The budget device is powered by a Quad core and comes with Android 7.0 Nougat. Moto C will be available at leading offline retailers across over 100 cities in India. It will be available in Pearl White and Starry Black colour variants in India.
The Moto C was launched last month and was made available in two variants – the 3G version with 1GB RAM/8GB storage, and a 4G option with 1GB RAM/8GB storage. In India, the company has launched a brand new variant with 1GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage, 4G VoLTE support, and dual-SIM (Micro-SIM) card slots.
Moto C runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and features a 5-inch FWVGA (480×854 pixels) display. The smartphone is powered by a 1.1GHz MediaTek MT6737M quad-core Cortex-A53 SoC with just 1GB RAM and an option of 8GB and 16GB internal storage, which can be further expanded via microSD card (up to 32GB).
Moto C camera sports a 5-megapixel rear sensor with 1.4-micron pixels, 74-degree field of view, fixed focus, an LED flash, and 720p video recording. In the front, there is a 2-megapixel shooter with 1-micron pixels, a 63-degree field of view, fixed focus, and an LED flash. The Moto C sports a 2350mAh battery which is removable.

Moto C is seen sporting capacitive navigation buttons, with no fingerprint scanner at the front or back. The speaker grille is seen at the back of the Moto C, while the 3.5mm audio jack sits on the top edge alongside the Micro-USB port. The camera sits at the back of the smartphone in a ring shaped module with the flash. The Motorola batwing logo sits at the back as well, in the centre.
Moto C is priced at Rs. 5,999, which means the device will go head-to-head with Xiaomi Redmi 4 and Xiaomi Redmi 4A.
