Motorola has started teasing the upcoming launch of its Moto M smartphone in India. The company took to its social media accounts to release the teaser for the device. The teaser image carries a caption – “Something different is coming your way. Stay tuned to know more. #ComingSoon”. The Moto M was first launched in China for 1999 yuan (approx. Rs. 19,630). It is the first mid-range smartphone to come powered by MediaTek Helio P15 chipset.
Regarding other specifications, 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 paired with Mali T860MP2 GPU and 4GB of RAM. It packs in 32GB internal storage, expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. The smartphone sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and phase detection autofocus (PDAF), clubbed with an 8-megapixel selfie camera. We were expecting to see Android 7.0 Nougat on the Moto M, but sadly it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Moto M is a metal-clad smartphone with a fingerprint sensor placed on the back. It comes integrated with Dolby Atmos technology for better multimedia experience and water repellent nano coating for protection against external damages caused by water splash. For connectivity, it supports 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, USB Type-C, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, GPS, and NFC. A 3,050 mAh battery with Turbocharging backs the smartphone.
The specifications of the Moto M do not surprise us except for the fact that Lenovo decided to go with a MediaTek chipset rather than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor.
