Moto C and Moto C Plus now official with front facing LED flash


Moto has just announced the Moto C and the Moto C Plus, just a day after its existence was revealed by a leak. The smartphone is set to replace the Moto E as the cheapest Moto smartphone. With features like front facing flash and Android 7.0 Nougat, this is no doubt an attractive handset in the budget segment.

The smartphone will be available in Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific regions very soon. Much like the older versions of the Moto E, the Moto C will be available in a 3G only variant, targeting the regions where 4G hasn’t made a mark yet. One of the key features of the two handsets is the presence of a front-facing LED flash, which allows you to get some light into your otherwise dimly lit selfies.

There’s no word on when the handset will reach the Indian shores, but we don’t think Moto will wait too long. Given that this is currently the cheapest handset available from Moto’s device lineup, it will be interesting to see how the Moto E will be marketed by the company. The Moto Z, Moto X, Moto G, and the Moto E are expected to be announced by June.
