It seems that Motorola Moto M has been officially announced on a China website. This model comes with a price tag of 1999 Yuan, meaning around $295. This model was expected to be released with the latest Lenovo Vibe P2.
However, the Motorola Moto M is already listed and ready for sale. Customers are required to sing up on the online platform to be able to pre-order the smartphone when it becomes available.
It seems that the Moto M sports a metal design and antenna bands at the bottom and on the top of the device. This high-tech device features a fingerprint scanner placed on the rear part for added security.
The company did not retain the standard square button present in the previous Moto Z series. This model weighs 163g and features a generous 5.5-inch Super AMOLED full HD display backed by a 1080 x 1920-pixel resolution.
The Motorola Moto M comes in silver and gold hues. Under the hood, it is equipped with an octa-core 2.2 GHz and 1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor along with a Mali T860 GPU. This smartphone has 4GB of RAM and 32 GB of built-in internal storage, while it also supports a microSD card up to maximum 128GB.
Thanks to its metal casing, the Motorola Moto M is splash and water-resistant. Concerning photo quality, this model sports a 16-megapixel main shooter and an 8-megapixel front-facing cam.
Other camera features include LED flash, phase detection autofocus, panorama, HDR, face detection, touch focus, and geo-tagging. It is worth mentioning that this model is a dual SIM device with a headphone jack of 3.5 mm.
Also, it has a Li-Ion non-removable 3050 mAh power source, which is not the best considering the size of the screen. However, it features a USB type-C, meaning that it takes around one hour and a half to fully charge.
In terms of software, this model runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0. It seems customers will have to wait for the next Motorola smartphone to benefit from Android Nougat 7.0, but that cannot be considered a drawback.
Besides the fingerprint sensor, the Motorola Moto M also comes with a Proximity / Gyro sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, Electric compass, and a Vibration meter. All things considered, this model will most-likely be in high demand once it’s released.
