Lenovo’s company Motorola India has launched a new low-end smartphone for local consumers in the country. The new Moto C is a 5-inch Android-powered smartphone that comes with 4G VoLTE support and is priced at Rs. 5,999 which is about $93 USD.

The Moto C packs a FWVGA touchscreen, and is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737M processor and runs Android 7.0 Nougat. It is equipped with a 5-Megapixel auto focus main camera with LED flash at the rear and a 2-Megapixel secondary camera, also with LED flash at the front.

Sudhin Mathur, Managing Director, Motorola Mobility India and Country Head, Lenovo Mobile Biz Group, said: According to the reports fewer people are expected to upgrade to smartphones because of concerns over price, need and ability to use. We see this as a huge opportunity for a brand like us to initiate the smartphone journey for feature phone users. At Motorola, we focus on mobility through device innovation, user-centric design and smart connectivity to offer the best possible smartphone experience to the consumers.

The Moto C has a polycarbonate body with micro-textured rear cover. It supports the use of dual micro SIMs and is fuelled by a 2,350mAh removable battery. It comes in Pearl White and Starry Black colour options and is available for sale across 100+ cities in India.
