Motorola Moto C and Moto C Plus budget-friendly phones announced

A new press render leaks over the weekend which confirms all the upcoming Motorola devices. After Lenovo taking over Moto, everyone thought that Lenovo didn't give sufficient preference to Moto X series to concentrate more on Moto Z. But it turned out to be false and Lenovo is bringing new one this year which is dubbed Moto X 2017. An image was leaked by a leakster Evan Blass via Twitter which reveals the line-up of the 2017 Motorola smartphones - Z, X, g, e, and c.

The Z2 Force will have a shattershield display, Moto Mods support and 1GB LTE chipset. Moreover, both will support MotoMods. The Moto Z Play is already out there and Moto Z Force is on its way. With its top spot gone, the Moto X is all set to make a return in 2017 as a mid-card phone. The smartphone is said to be called - Moto X4.

Pentagon chief, Turkish PM meet after decision to arm Kurds
On Wednesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that every weapon obtained by the YPG constitutes a threat to Turkey. An Erdogan adviser, Ibrahim Kalin, met on Tuesday with Thomas Shannon, the State Department No. 2 official.

Moto gS has a 5.2-inch full HD display with a metal body. The biggest change is the 4000 mAh battery capacity inside this phone. The Moto C Plus starts at €119 with 1GB RAM and 16GB of storage.

Under the Moto G series, Lenovo recently announced two new smartphones - Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. The producing company says the two devices are "packed with the essentials" so customers should expect them to feature the most basic of specifications. In the past we have seen another Moto X device leak which came with the model number XT18XX. Pricing starts at €89 for the 3G model with 1GB RAM/8GB storage, and the 4G option starts at €99 with 1GB RAM and 8GB of built-in storage. The camera on the Moto E Plus will be 13MP camera. To recall, previous rumours suggested that the smartphone under the Moto E series will be called Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus.

Super Mario Odyssey to be Showcased at E3 2017
Not a few analysts have the impression that Nintendo has learned from its mistakes with its previous console, the Wii U. The company has sought to make it easier to create games for the Switch by expanding the scope of development tools.

Speaking of which, GSM Arena points out that the placement of the dual-LED flash on the selfie snapper is different from the ones shown in previous leaks. The Moto E Plus will have a larger 5.5-inch 720p display and a large 5,000 mAh battery. The phone offers 5-inch 854 x 480-pixel display.

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.
