Last year, Lenovo owned Motorola launched the Moto C and the Plus sized Moto C packing in decent specifications at the affordable price range. It is already one year down the line, and while the Moto G6 and the G6 plus are still very much fresh in our mind, the latest information available right here suggests the company now looks set to update the Moto C range later this year.
The guys at 91mobiles have now obtained first photos of what is alleged to be the update to the Moto C and Moto C plus from last year, and like you would probably guess, this year’s range of Moto C would be called the Moto C2 and Moto C2 plus.
The render as seen below seems to suggest the Moto C2 and Moto C2 plus as they would be called will bear a striking resemblance with the Moto E4, while preserving the design language of all recent Motorola devices. Unlike a bunch of smartphones we have seen since the beginning of 2018, the leaked renders of the Moto C2 and C2 plus suggests Motorola won’t be adopting the all-screen much less the added notch design that we’ve seen on most flagships and even budget devices from China. By implication, the Moto C2 and C2 plus will retain the thick bezels at the front on all sides of the display, while the volume rocker and the power button are will retain their usual location.

If you’re a fan of the physical home button, you may be in luck as the renders reveal the Moto C2 plus will have a physical home button which could double as the fingerprint sensor, while the regular Moto C2 appears to be missing out on the security feature.
Furthermore, both device would come with single rear cameras with LED flash located within the Motorola signature circular module, as well as single front-facing cameras with LED flash.
Both devices have only just surfaced on the rumor mill now, so there’s virtually nothing yet on expected specs, price and release date, but we’ll be sure to update you when we hear more about these upcoming devices.
