Lenovo’s latest Moto Z and Moto Z Play reached India just last month, and the company is already prepping to launch another phone, Moto M, possibly globally. Moto M is reported to launch on November 8 and just a week ahead of the launch its full specifications and several live images have leaked online.
The famous tipster, Steve Hemmerstoffer aka OnLeaks, has posted the upcoming Moto phone’s photos and full specifications on Twitter.
The latest reveal goes somewhat against the earlier reports. The phone was first rumoured to come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625, then it was said to be powered by MediaTek Helio P10. Now according to OnLeaks, the Moto M will run on MediaTek Helio P15 running at 2.2GHz.
The Helio P15 is an octa-core Cortex-A53 processor and is coupled with Mali-T860 MP2 GPU. According to the company, the P15 delivers 10 per cent jump in performance compared to Helio P10.
The Moto M features a 5.5-inch FullHD display and packs in 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The phone has a 13-megapixel camera on the back and an 8-megapixel camera on the front. Leaked images show that the phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Earlier reports had said that the Moto M is powered by a massive 5,100mAh battery. But according to Hemmerstoffer, the phone has a 3,050mAh battery.
Unlike the recent Moto phones, the Moto M carries a fingerprint sensor on the back, under the camera. The phone also features a full metal body, which is new for a mid-range Moto phone. A 3.5mm audiojack is also missing from the photos, something that Motorola tried with Moto Z smartphone.
While all the leaked specifications and photos suggest that Moto M is going to be a decent mid-range phone, there is a downside. The software running on Moto M doesn’t appear to be stock Android. Motorola has always kept its OS as close to pure Android as possible, the UI in the leaked photos look heavily customised.
It is not certain yet if Lenovo is in fact doing away with stock Android on Moto phones or it is just a launcher running on the leaked Moto M phone.
