There is a report coming from Nashville Chatter which suggests that Lenovo’s Motorola brand may be in production for an Android Oreo (Go edition) smartphone named Moto C2. This is coming almost one month after alleged renders of the phone were leaked.
The smartphone which was spotted on Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with a 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Several other variants of the Moto C2 have also been spotted on certification websites in different regions. These include the XT1920-15 for Western European markets; the XT1920-16 for EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa); and the last two versions (XT1920-18 and XT1920-19) for Latin American markets with single-SIM and dual-SIM variants respectively.
The FCC filing also revealed some of the features and specs of the phone. The Moto phone will probably sport a 5.2-inch display with a 16:9 screen ratio. Spotted at the back is a single main camera.
We are not yet sure whether the phone is the Moto C2 Plus or the standard C2. But based on the 2,000mAh/2,120mAh battery which matches with previous reports, the phone is likely to be the standard Moto C2 as the previous C2 Plus has a 4,000mAh battery.
We are also expecting a rear fingerprint sensor, selfie flash and headphone jack. The body dimension is already stated as 147.88 x 71.22mm.
Last year’s Moto C2 and C2 Plus came with 5MP and 8MP rear cameras respectively with both sporting a 5MP selfie shooter. They had a MediaTek processor under the hood paired with 1GB for C2 and 2GB of RAM for C2 Plus and up to 16GB of internal storage. We are expecting this year duo to be an upgrade over these ones, but still below the new Moto E5 line-up.
Although the launch date has not been announced yet, the Moto C2 will probably be unveiled with the rumoured Motorola One Power.
