Lenovo is expected to launch the Moto M alongside the Lenovo P2 in China on Tuesday, however even before the event begins, the company has listed the Moto M smartphone on its website. The listing reveals that the Motorola Moto M is priced at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 19,700), and comes with a fingerprint scanner at the back and an 8-megapixel front camera.
The smartphone’s Gold colour option is listed on the company’s China site, and was first reported by MyDrivers. It retains the capsule-like camera module at the back seen on most Moto smartphones these days. The Moto M sports a full metal unibody design with antenna bands running on the top and bottom edges. The volume and power buttons are on the right edge, and the navigation buttons are fitted on screen. Because the fingerprint sensor is housed right below the camera capsule, the Moto logo has shifted to the bottom of the device.
This listing has gone live soon after the promotional images were leaked. The design and build pretty much resonates with what has been leaked earlier. As for specifications, the Moto M sports mid-range specifications with a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display. It is powered by a 2.2GHz MediaTek Helio P15 octa-core processor with 4GB of RAM. The smartphone offers 32GB of inbuilt storage, but no details about storage expansion have been provided.
For photography, the Moto M sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash, and PDAF. There’s also a 8-megapixel front sensor for video chats and selfie photography. The smartphone packs a 3050mAh battery to keep the lights on, and also comes with support for fast charging. The listing claims that the Moto M comes with a double layer nano-coating to protect it from drizzle, spills and splashes.
While most of the specifications are now official, the company still may have withheld some information for the big stage. As mentioned, the Lenovo P2 and the Moto M are expected to be announced officially at an event later today.
