The Moto M is set to launch on Tuesday, the 8th of November and we pretty much know all the basic features already, save for the exact price. More details of Lenovo’s new phone under the Moto brand have surfaced from official press releases.
First on the list is the audio of the phone. The Moto M will come with Dolby Atmos, providing 360° surround sound when you watch videos or listen to music.
Another feature is the waterproof dual nano-coating which protects the phone from splashes and light showers. So you shouldn’t worry about whipping out your phone and making a call if there’s a drizzle but just don’t take it for a swim.
Lenovo also says the Moto M’s 3050mAh battery supports fast charging. We assume this to be Motorola’s Turbo Power fast charge technology which is similar to Quick Charge 2.0.
The Moto M has full network support, VoLTE, dual nano-sim slots, and offers download speeds of up to 300Mbps. The main camera is a 16MP sensor with PDAF, CCT, fast focus, and a LED flash. The camera up front is an 8MP shooter with an 85° viewing angle which should suffice for selfies.
Other details already known include the 5.5” FHD display, a 2.2GHz octa-core Helio P15 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Moto M will be available in Gold and Silver variants and is expected to be priced at about 1999 Yuan (roughly $300) which puts it in the mid-range category. While there are phones with more powerful features that sell for less, Motorola may still score a win in China with the device amongst those who are fans of their almost-stock android UI and lack of bloatware.
