The Moto M has been speculated for a while now. The device was first spotted on the TENAA certifications a couple of months ago.
Now, a number of live images of the phone have cropped up to give more insight on the device. The Moto M will attempt to bring back a familiar feel to the Moto brand – something it has been missing for the past few years. The Moto M will go back to the older days of the company by offering curved edges with real metal throughout the device. The design is not ground breaking but it is not bad either.
Motorola made some of the best looking smartphones in the past, but the Moto M will be remembered only for its features. The phone has a 5.5 inch display which is sure to draw a lot of power from the batteries. Aware of this element, Moto M comes with a decent sized 3000 mAhbattery. It may not be sufficient to offer more than 4-5 hours of screen on time, but the fast charging feature should help the device overcome this hindrance.
Unlike the models in the last few months that have relied upon snapdragon processors, the upcoming Moto M seems to offer only MediaTek MT6750 chipset. It is unlikely to be the fastest around but it may be just enough to help Motorola achieve an aggressive pricing. This processor will be assisted by a healthy 3 GB of RAM although the possibility of seeing a version with 4 GB of RAM is quite significant. These figures should ensure adequate, if not excellent, performance figures.
Given the specifications of the phone, it is highly likely to offer 4G LTE support, which will be a major selling point in major markets. The phone is likely to ship only with the Android marshmallow but given its specifications it is highly likely that an update to Android Nougat will be available sooner than later.
Motorola is about to provide its lower end models like the Moto G4 Plus with an android update in the next few weeks. The Moto M with its better specifications is likely to be great with Nougat. The availability of the Moto M remains a mystery just like the pricing. It should not be available later than November while pricing is likely to be slightly higher than the Moto G4 Plus. With such specifications, Motorola may very well have a winner on their hands.
