The company is reportedly planning to announce two new handsets under the Moto C, Moto G, Moto E, and Moto Z series, while on the other hand, is said to bring a new device under its Moto X lineup.

Motorola says that the Moto C and Moto C Plus will begin rolling out this spring across Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. The phone ships with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage expandable by up to 32GB via a microSD card slot, features a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front one, and is fueled by a 2,350mAh removable battery. Our own reports claim the 3G version of the Moto C will have a 32-bit quad-core MediaTek processor with a clock speed of 1.3 GHz, while the 4G version will have a 64-bit MediaTek quad-core chipset clocked at 1.1 GHz.

Moto C series will include the cheapest smartphones of all Moto phones.

The Moto C starts at €89, while the Moto C Plus starts at €119.

The Moto Z2 Force and Z2 Play will feature 5.5-inch displays, but they will be differentiated by the resolution. The Moto X series of devices were the flagship level devices for Motorola at one time, but Motorola shifted that distinction to the Moto Z line a year ago. The features like SmartCam feature and dual camera at the back are present in this smartphone. The biggest change is the 4000 mAh battery capacity inside this phone.

The Moto C Plus is very similar to the Moto C with respect to design, but there are some areas with respect to specifications where it surpasses it. On the camera front, there is a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP selfie camera. However, unlike display size that has been the differentiating factor all through, for the Moto C, that has been with the pixel density.

The enormous 3800 mAh battery life, which is to be paired with the recently announced Snapdragon 660 processor, could prove great in providing an excellent balance between battery life and performance, much like the Moto Z Play cellphone which was launched previous year.

Both handsets will ship running Android 7.0 and be offered in your choice of red, white, gold and black. It doesn't look like Motorola plans to bring either one of these Moto C phones to the United States right now.
