Lenovo's soon-to-be-launched Moto M smartphone has made a stop at AnTuTu benchmarking website, revealing key features of the device.

As per the performance-testing website, Moto M bearing model number: XT1662 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 16MP primary camera and 8MP front snapper.

An interesting thing to note is that the Moto M model featured on AnTuTu shows that the device will be powered by MediaTek Helio P10 (MT6755) octa-core CPU with Mali T860 GPU, and not Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, as previously reported.

If this report turns out to be true, Moto M will be the second phone in the Moto series to house a MediaTek processor, after Moto E3 Power.

In a related development, a weibo user in China has leaked a fresh set of Moto M images, confirming that the device will have a metal-based shell on the back and will also be compatible with Moto Mods.

Going by the specifications, Moto M is likely to be retailed as a mid-range phone positioned in between the Moto G4 series and the Moto Z series.

By making Moto Mods available to the mid-range Moto M, Motorola will be able to find traction among the price-sensitive consumers in emerging market like India.

More will be known about the mid-range phone soon, as the device is expected to make its debut in China on November 8.
