Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola may not have yielded it the sort of results it wanted, but the deal isn’t a complete flop either. The company is still putting its brave efforts to build and carry on the Moto-range of products in the US and across the globe. Now, Lenovo seems all set to launch a new smartphone called the Vibe C2 – the photos and specifications of which have surfaced online. However, there is a small catch here.

Interestingly, the leaked Vibe C2 will be offered in two versions, carrying model numbers XT1700 and XT1706, AndroidHeadlines reports. These model numbers look familiar to what we’ve already seen on Motorola smartphones. For instance, the original Moto E had a model number XT1021, whereas the second-generation Moto E variants sported model numbers – XT1527, XT1511, XT1505 and XT1524. This probably hints that the upcoming Lenovo Vibe C2 could be launched as Moto E (2016) in select markets.

It will likely be offered in black and white color variants. Also Read - Best gaming laptops under Rs 1,00,000 in India: MSI GP65 Leopard, Dell G5 and more
