Posted May 16, 2017

Motorola is expected to unveil its new line of smartphones soon enough and leaks hint at an exciting mix of specs, features, and aesthetics.

Lenovo on Monday officially unveiled the Moto C and Moto C Plus, two of the most affordable Moto smartphones ever conceived (and the subject of multiple rumors as of late).

The recent leak came courtesy a video captured at a private Motorola event where the company was going over their smartphone roadmap for the coming year.

Noted leakster Evan Blass has come up with a snapshot of all that the company intends to launch in 2017.Here is the list of new Moto devices. Looks like there will be only one Moto X for 2017.

According to the leak, Motorola will release no fewer than nine phones later this year, which will lead to a crowded lineup. Till now it leaked only about the display in these new smartphones. The series has two phones- Z play and Z force. The C Plus features an 8MP rear shooter in addition to a larger 4,000 mAh-hour battery over the C's 2,350 mAh power cell.

Apple's iPhone 7 was the world's best-selling smartphone in Q1
Unlike Samsung's J series which are decidedly more to the budget market, the R9s is a midrange phone with a top-end selfie camera. It's also worth mentioning that 68 percent of smartphones are sold in offline retail stores, compared to only 21 percent online.

Yes, the company has come up with "GS" series again after the Moto G5 and G5 Plus were a big hit. The smartphone is backed up by 3,800mAh Battery with QC capabilities which is folded over a Metal Build and also shows a IP68 Water & Dust Resistance (which is very smart). As per design, the device will sport a 5.5-inch screen and will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 which will be coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. It will probably be called as Moto X4. "Furthermore, the device will feature a 5.5" screen with 3D support. The Moto C Plus equips a 5-inch HD display and packs a quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6737 chipset. This should include a regular Moto Z2, a Moto Z2 Force, and a Moto Z2 Play.

The upcoming Moto E series phones have been subjected to several leaks lately.

There are two phones under the Moto C badge.

Locally, pricing and availability hasn't been announced, so we're not even sure if Moto will see these released here, but given the expected pricing of 99 Euros, it's possible this could be the start of a $150 phone locally, especially since the Moto E series is very hard to find.

It should be noted that these all the information are subjected to change until Lenovo itself confirms them.
