The Moto C Plus will come in only 4G LTE variant while the Moto C is said to offer a 3G only and a 4G variant.
Both the phones in the new C series will be running on quad core MediaTek processors. The Moto C 3G will sport a 32-bit processor clocked at 1.3 GHz where as the Moto C 4G will sport a 64-bit processor clocked at 1.1 GHz. Both the variants of Moto C will hold 1 GB RAM.

The highlight of both the smartphones is going to be the battery. Though Moto C is said to contain a 2350 mAh battery, the Moto C Plus will come with a massive 4,000 mAh battery.
If these leaks comes out to be true then companies like Micromax, Intex and other home grown manufacturers which have a large market share in the entry level smartphones are going to face even tougher competition with the phones like Xiaomi Redmi 4A already in the race.
