Motorola's Moto Z and Moto Z Play may have turned some heads, but the Lenovo-owned smartphone making company is not done yet. Motorola is planning to launch two new devices later this year, which will put the company back in the radar.
Rumours are rife with details about a new Motorola smartphone, the Moto M, which is expected to wear the flagship crown for its maker. The launch of the new premium handset is expected to take place sometime in December, but some details of the Moto M have already made it to the online world.
According to media reports, the upcoming Moto M smartphone will have a massive 5,100mAh battery, a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a 16MP primary camera and a 5MP or 8MP front snapper. There will also be a fingerprint scanner at the back to authenticate the device owner with a single tap, unlike the Moto Z series.
As per a post on Tech Droider, the handset will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC and come paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Motorola might also launch a China-exclusive variant of the Moto M with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. Both variants will have microSD card support up to 128GB.
The full metal body will give the Moto M a premium look, making it competent enough to take on the rivals from Samsung, Apple, Oppo and others. The device will run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out-of-the-box, but get upgraded to Google's latest Android Nougat at a later time.
Nothing is official on the Moto M smartphone as of now, but the December launch isn't far off to see what the real deal is. Stay tuned.
