The Moto C2 Could Be Launch Motorola’s First Android Go Smartphone
Motorola devices have a good reputation of close to stock Android software. However, it seems the company is also going all in on an Android Go phone. Lately, many manufacturers have been working on these ultra-affordable versions of phones. Motorola is now the latest. The new Android Go phone from Motorola appeared on the FCC website which tells us that it will be released in the US. It seems Motorola might market it as the Moto C2.
it’s unclear which smartphone the certifications relate to but, considering the device will likely act as the brand’s entry-level model, the upcoming Moto C2 that leaked last month is the most possible candidate. After all, last year’s Moto C also boasted just 1GB of RAM and was offered with the choice of either 8GB or 16GB of storage. Also revealed, is the battery capacity which is 2,000mAh or 2,100mAh and a display of 5-5.2-inches. The dimensions are shown to be 147.88 x 71.22mm. Moreover, it should also feature an LTE band. However, due to the smartphone’s June 2017 release, it shipped with regular Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, instead of the lightweight Android Go that was announced at a later date to compliment Android 8.1 Oreo.
The Moto C series is a very entry-level device that makes it the perfect candidate of Android Go. Last year’s model had 1GB of RAM and options of 8GB/16GB storage. Motorola is also likely to launch a pure Android One phone which could be named Motorola One Power.
