Now that will apparently be C, as Moto crafts a new price point for smartphones to drop.

There are two new budget Motorola smartphones - say hello to the super affordable Moto C and Moto C Plus.

The Moto Z was a great device by Lenovo and Motorola and they are looking to back it up this year with a solid second generation. Motorola's alleged plan broke out after an entire list of devices leaked online giving away key details. Under the new Moto C series, the company has announced two new products - Moto C and C Plus.

Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility reportedly aims at launching around over half-a-dozen handsets before the year ends.

The leaked image not only confirms the making of the Motorola phones, but also reveals the name and specifications of each one of them.

The picture itself is quite descriptive and self-explanatory: the Moto family has now grown to 5 letters, with the Z seemingly residing at the top of the hierarchy through its "unlimited capabilities".

The good news is that the phone comes with a huge 4,000mAh battery, and there's a microSD card slot for expanding storage. The Moto X4 rumored specs are 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage and the new Snapdragon 660 processor.

Available information about the Moto X until 2017 is not to be considered official, especially because the cell was not shown - demonstration was held in the style of the graduation in 99% of Russian universities, i.e. developers limited colorful presentation, and nothing more. "According to the leaked image, each device sports a 5" screen with the C being an FW resolution which may refer to the 854×480 pixels FWVGA screen size, while the C Plus will have an HD screen and a 4000mAh battery. The biggest change is the 4000 mAh battery capacity inside this phone. On the other side, Moto Z2 Force is said to continue the trademark shatter proof screen, however, this time in a slimmer body. On the other hand, the latter - aside from offering Moto Mods support - will also feature gigabit LTE and ShatterShield.

Moving up, the Moto E lineup gets a refresh entering the fourth generation. It will be a mid-range handset with a 5.2-inch Full HD display and "SmartCam". Hence, these are all rumorus as of now, and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
