Derrick Tucker | 18 May, 2017, 01:53

Motorola took us by surprise today and unveiled the Moto C and Moto C Plus - the company's most affordable handsets to date.

The Lenovo-owned company has silently launched the new C line targeting the first-time smartphone buyers.

The new Moto C and Moto C Plus will be going on sale in Latin Europe, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific beginning this spring.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Motorola will be bringing either of the Moto C devices to the US.

Motorola Moto C will sell in a 3G-only 8GB model for 89 Euros (Rs 6260) while the 4G model will cost you 99 Euros (Rs 6960).
