Back in August, the upcoming Moto M was spotted on TENAA’s website, but here we are, two months later, and the phone is not yet official. However, this should change in the near future, as a first set of images with what seems to be the actual handset were spotted online.
The Moto M will mark a premiere for Motorola, being the Lenovo-owned manufacturer’s first smartphone to feature a fingerprint scanner on the back. Besides this, it will also make a step forward in terms of design, sporting a fully metallic body, instead of the old plastic build seen at older models.
As for the specs, it is expected to come with a 5.5″ panel, most likely with a full HD resolution or, who knows, maybe QHD, and a MediaTek MT6750 chipset under the hood, with eight Cortex-A53 cores, clocked at 1.9 GHz.
The processor will be aided by 3 or 4 GB of RAM, while the internal storage capacity should count 32 or 64 GB. We don’t know anything about a potential microSD card slot yet.
In terms of camera, the Moto M should relay on a 16 MP rear-mounted snapper, placed above the fingerprint scanner and teaming up with an LED flash, so you can take better low-light shots, as well as an 8 MP sensor on the front, for all you selfie fans out there.
We should also mention that the phone will come with 4G support, a 3000 mAh battery and Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the best. However, it the manufacturer manages to keep its promise and deliver timely updates, the Moto M will receive Android 7.0 somewhere in the first quarter of 2017.
The handset is expected to be officially introduced somewhere in November. For the moment, there’s no exact information about the regions where it will be available though, the same thing going about the price.
