By on Email @exolete


Moto India has just begun teasing the launch of a new smartphone and if you look deep enough you could see the silhouette of the recently announced Moto M. The metal clad smartphone is a huge departure for Moto, with a curved back and a rear fingerprint sensor, instead of front like the Moto G4 series.

The Moto M is one of the first smartphones running on the MediaTek Helio P15 octa-core SoC which brings in better performance and a slightly more powerful GPU. Rest of the specs are also similar to other mid-range smartphones including 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage which is expandable with the hybrid dual-SIM slot on the device. On the camera front, there's a 16MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture lens, PDAF which could be using the same sensor as the Moto G4 Plus. Then there's an 8MP selfie camera as well and a 3050 mAh battery.

It differs from other smartphones in its segment due to it's 5.5-inch AMOLED display and stereo speakers. The Moto M is somewhat more water resistant as well with its dual P2i nano-coating which protects in case of water splashes.

Moto M Expected Pricing in India

Again going by clues from its launch price in China, the Moto M in India could come in at around Rs. 19700. Although given how aggressive Lenovo has been of late we may see it priced below the Z2 Plus.
