The Moto M, which was unveiled in China earlier this month will be making it way to Indian shores very soon. Motorola confirmed the same via its twitter account where it teased an image of the all-metal Moto M and said “"Something different is coming your way. Stay tuned to know more!”.
All new design
The Moto M is an exciting smartphone as its a departure from the design language of previous Motorola smartphones. It rocks a full metal unibody design with antenna bands on the top and bottom edges, much like the iPhone 7.
What is different here is that unlike the Moto Z and Moto G4, the fingerprint sensor isn't located below the screen but at the rear, below the camera module. Because of this, the Moto logo has shifted to the bottom of the device, which definitely looks unique.
On the hardware front, the Moto M is a typical mid-range device with a 5.5-inch fullHD display, a MediaTek hello P15 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 3,050mAh battery with fast charging support. The internal storage can be complemented with a microSD card of upto 128GB.
The Moto M is also splash proof, with a double layer nano coating to protect it from minimal water exposure.
On the imaging front, the Moto M comes with a 16MP rear camera with dual-LED flash and phase detection auto-focus. On the front there is an 8MP camera for your selfie needs.
Headphone jack intact!
On the connectivity front, the handset supports 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C and NFC. And yes, it does come with a headphone jack!
Price and availability
The Moto M was announced in China at a price of CNY 1,999, which translates to approximately Rs 19,700. We hope Motorola prices the handset aggressively when it launches in India.
