Lenovo has already sent out invites for a June 19 launch of the Moto C Plus in India and Flipkart has just confirmed that the smartphone will be available on its site. The phone, along with the Moto C, was first unveiled in May offering entry-level specifications at affordable prices. Meanwhile, the Moto C has already been launched in India at Rs. 5,999, but is available only via offline channels. Flipkart has listed the Moto C Plus on its site mentioning that the phone will be unveiled on June 19 and will have a limited period sale on June 20 at 12pm. While we can now be certain that the Moto C Plus will be available via the e-commerce site, one will have to wait till Monday to find out whether it will be a Flipkart-exclusive or if we can expect offline availability as well like the Moto C.
Moto C Plus specifications
To recall, the Moto C Plus runs on Android Nougat and sports a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display. It is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6737 quad-core Cortex-A53 SoC paired with 1GB or 2GB of RAM. You also get 16GB of inbuilt storage, which is expandable via a microSD slot (up to 32GB).
The Moto C Plus comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, 1.12 micron pixels, autofocus, 71-degree field of view and an LED flash. It also gets a 2-megapixel front-facing camera similar to the Moto C. The smartphone houses a 4000mAh battery that is much larger than the 2350mAh battery inside the Moto C. The Moto C Plus measures 144×72.3×10 mm and weighs 162 grams.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 3.5mm headphone jack, FM and 3G connectivity. Much like the case with the Moto C, the Moto C Plus is also expected to get a 4G VoLTE variant and dual-SIM card slots in India. Given these specifications, you can expect the Moto C Plus to be priced pretty close to the Moto C when it launches.
