Keeping up with tradition Lenovo has just launched the Moto M in India at a very competitive price point. The Moto M was launched earlier in China and it has finally arrived in India priced at just Rs. 15,999. It comes in gold, silver and gray color options, available exclusively on Flipkart.
There is a huge change in design from the Moto G4 series, the Moto M has a metal back and the fingerprint sensor has also been moved to back. Coming to specs, the Moto M packs a 5.5-inch 1080p full-HD IPS display with 2.5D curved glass for protection on top. It runs on the new Helio P15 octa-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Mali-T860 MP2 GPU. There's 4 GB RAM onboard and 64 GB storage which can be expanded up to 256 GB with a microSD card. There is a 3 GB RAM variant with 32 GB onboard storage as well.

Coming to cameras, we have a 16 MP rear camera here with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus and dual-LED flash. There's also an 8 MP front camera with 85-degree wide angle lens. The Moto M runs on vanilla Android 6.0 Marshmallow and should be updated to Nougat in the coming months.
Again, getting back to the build there's P2i nano-coating to prevent any damage from water splashes but you can't dip it in water.
Connectivity options include dual-SIM 4G VoLTE support, dual-band WiFi ac, Bluetooth, and GPS. It has a USB Type-C port which supports fast charging for the 3050 mAh non-removable battery. You will get the fast charger within the box.
