After the recent launch of the Moto Z series of smartphones by Lenovo-owned Motorola, the China-based brand seems to be preparing to come up with a new Moto M phone range.

News of this development has been prompted by the emergence of images that are speculated to be that of the new Moto M smartphone.

Also, a new TENAA certification of a handset named Motorola Moto M XT1662 adds substance to the rumour.

These listings point at the launch of a new Motorola device, and rumour mills (having a degree of credibility due to their past track record) have hinted that this device is the Moto M.

The leaked images show a metallic outer structure bearing stark resemblance to a metal unibody.
