It’s funny how leaked photos of upcoming products always turn out so blurry, considering how great the cameras of the subjects usually are. The latest live images of the rumored Moto M aren’t any different, but they do give away everything we need to know before the possible November 8 launch.
Unlike the Moto Z series everyone’s falling in love with, the rumored M-series handset doesn’t seem to have any form of modularity, bringing it closer to the midrange G-series Moto phones.
To make up for the incompatibility with Moto Mods, the upcoming midranger will instead have a full-metal body and fingerprint scanner on the back, the latter of which would be a first for the company.
Like in any unreleased gadget, some of the specs and features are still up for debate. What most sources can agree on is that the Moto M will have a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 4GB of memory, and at least 32GB of internal storage.
Those don’t sound too special, but if some leaks hold true, we might be seeing a new processor or high-powered battery on board.
The latter leak is the more unlikely one, but if there is in fact another phone launching on November 8, it might be the 5100mAh-capacity Lenovo P2, which was revealed during IFA 2016 but hasn’t begun shipping yet.
It’s difficult to tell how legitimate each piece of information is, but either way, the Moto M is shaping up to be worthy of occupying the middle ground between the Moto G4 Plus and Moto Z Play.
Our only concern is the origin of the leaks. All screenshots and information sheets have appeared with written Chinese on them, pointing to an exclusive release in China.
Such a launch would make sense when you think about the company being owned by China-based Lenovo, but every other Moto handset has experienced a worldwide release.
Pricing is also a mystery, as this will be a fresh series altogether. We see it falling between $300 and $400 — enough to distance itself from the rest of the Moto pack.
