Two weeks after debuting its C series in India, Motorola has now brought another phone with the launch of the Moto C Plus. The new handset packs a large 4000mAh battery and will go on sale at a price of Rs 6,999. It will be available exclusively on Flipkart starting from tomorrow, June 20th 2017.
Apart from the battery, though, there’s not much the C Plus brings to the table. It comes with a micro-textured plastic body, off-screen capacitive buttons and up front, features a 5-inch HD display. Underneath, the phone is powered by a rather mediocre, MediaTek quad-core processor clocked at 1.3Ghz along with 2GB of RAM, 16 gigs of inbuilt storage which is expandable up to 32GB via a MicroSD slot, Mali-T720MP2 GPU and of course, the highlight, a removable 4000mAh battery.
The camera arrangement includes an 8-megapixel f/2.2 lens, a single LED flash on the rear and a 2-megapixel f/2.8 shooter which also comes with its own LED flash. Out-of-the-box, the C Plus runs on Android Nougat software and supports Dual-SIM, 4G LTE, VoLTE and Bluetooth v4.2. Unfortunately, a fingerprint scanner is missing here.
The Moto C Plus will available to purchase on Flipkart at a price of Rs 6,999. There are a few color options including Metallic Cherry, Pearl White, Fine Gold and Starry Black. Early buyers will also benefit from a couple of offers including discounts on Motorola’s Pulse Max headphones, complimentary Jio Prime subscription along with up to 30GB of additional data and an extra 20% off on the upcoming Flipkart fashion sale. While the massive battery does sound compelling, the C Plus will face stiff competition from already available handsets like the Xiaomi Redmi 4 that comes with a much better set of specifications as well.
