As expected, Lenovo finally unveiled the Motorola Moto M smartphone in China. The phone comes in Gold and Silver color variants for a price of 1999 yuan (approx. Rs. 19,630). The company has not yet revealed a timeline for Moto M’s launch in other markets outside China.
The Moto M features a 5.5-inch full HD 1080p Super AMOLED screen and is powered by a 2.2 GHz Octa-core MediaTek Helio P15 chipset coupled with Mali T860MP2 GPU and 4GB of RAM. It comes with 32GB internal storage, expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. The phone sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and phase-detection auto-focus (PDAF), along with an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
For design, the Moto M is a metal-clad smartphone with a fingerprint sensor placed on the rear. The phone comes with water repellent nano coating and Dolby Atmos technology. Regarding connectivity, it supports 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, USB Type-C, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, GPS, and NFC. A 3050mAh battery with Turbocharging backs the smartphone.
We were expecting to see Nougat on the Moto M, but sadly it carries the old Android 6.0. The specifications do not surprise us except for the fact that Lenovo decided to go with a MediaTek chipset rather than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor.
