Moto M unveiled in China with metal body and 3050mAh battery
After a spate of leaks, the Moto M is now official in China. The specs are in line with what we’ve seen in the leaks, with the phone offering a 5.5-inch Full HD display with 2.5D curved glass, 2.2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P15 SoC with Mali T860MP2 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 32GB storage, microSD slot, 16MP camera with dual-tone flash and PDAF, 8MP front shooter, 4G with VoLTE, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, USB-C, and a 3050mAh battery,
Essentially, the phone looks like a metal-clad variant of the moto G4 Plus with the fingerprint sensor moved to the back, and USB-C connectivity. The Moto M also has a nano coating that makes it resistant to the occasional splash, and Lenovo has bundled Dolby Atmos tech. On the software side of things, we’re treated to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
The phone will go on sale starting November 11 in the country, retailing for ¥1,999 ($295). It will be sold in gold and silver color options, and as of now there’s no mention of global availability. Given its retail price, the Moto M slots in between the budget Moto G4 Plus and the mid-range Moto Z Play.
