The first we heard of Motorola working on the Moto M, there was little more than some rumblings and images of a new device. The images showed an aluminum body, along with a fingerprint scanner and similar camera module to what we’ve seen from the 2016 Moto G lineup.
The initial rumors suggested the Moto M would feature 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and would include a 5.5-inch 1080p display. The device would also include a mid-range MediaTek processor along with a 16MP rear camera. However, it seems that the cats out of the bag, as a list of full specs has been leaked.
The device will come in two different variants: one for the US, and one for China. The difference lies within the fact that the base model Moto M will feature 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, while the Chinese variant will “only” include 4GB of RAM and is offered with either 64GB or 128GB of storage. There will supposedly be another US model which includes 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, turning this one into the go-to option. The list also shows that the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 625 processor, and will include a 5,100mAh non-removable battery. As with most Motorola devices, you won’t have to worry about a slow re-charge rate, as the Moto M will include a 24W rapid charger. Finally, since headphone jacks seem to be all the rage nowadays, the Moto M will include a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you won’t be relegated to just Bluetooth headphones. The device will also run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, but we’ve already seen the company begin testing Android Nougat on other devices.
UPDATE: It looks like these could be the specs for an upcoming Lenovo P2. Not exactly the Moto M, but a close sibling from the same parent company.
We still aren’t sure as to when the Moto M will be released, but some rumors are claiming it could be released as early as December.
