Motorola launches its budget smartphone, Moto C, in India
Motorola Mobility today announced the launch of its next affordable smartphone in India, the Moto C. The smartphone was officially confirmed by the company few weeks before. The Moto C features the expected Motorola design with a micro-textured back cover.
There has been no mention of Moto C Plus which was also announced along with the Moto C.
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.– Sudhin Mathur, Managing Director, Motorola Mobility India & Country Head, Lenovo Mobile Biz Group
