Rumored Moto M exposed before November 8 launch

Nothing’s sacred anymore

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.

Phone Arena obtained a specifications sheet detailing the presence of the brand-new MediaTek Helio P15 chipset, and GSMArena claims a battery capacity of 5100mAh could make an appearance.

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.
