Moto M makes its way to India for ₹15,999
The first Motorola phone with an all-metal chassis.
After an unveil in China earlier this year, the Moto M has made its way to India. The phone will be up for sale exclusively on Flipkart starting December 15 for ₹15,999 ($235). That’s for the variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. Lenovo is also selling a model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage for ₹17,999 ($270).
The phone offers a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 2.2GHz quad-core MediaTek Helio P15 SoC, microSD slot, a 16MP camera that’s unchanged from the Moto G4 Plus, 8MP front shooter, USB-C, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, LTE with VoLTE, fingerprint sensor at the back, and a 3050mAh battery. The phone also comes with a nano-coating that protects it from the occasional splash. And yes, the 3.5mm jack is intact. It’s running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.
Lenovo is incentivizing the Moto M with several launch day offers, including a ₹1,000 discount for those using Citibank credit cards, ₹1,000 discount on the Moto Pulse 2 Headset, attractive EMI options, and an exchange scheme that knocks up to ₹2,000 off the price of the handset.
The Moto M slots in perfectly between the plastic Moto G4 Plus and the feature-rich Lenovo Z2 Plus. Considering it’ll sell for just ₹1,000 more than the Moto G4 Plus and doesn’t have the fingerprint sensor at the front, it is definitely worthy of your consideration if you’re in the market for a budget phone.
