After days of teasing, Moto India on Wednesday confirmed that the mystery device in the teasers is indeed the new Moto M series phone and will be released in India soon.

"A phone that is Majestically metal, a phone that reflects who you are. #MotoM Coming soon-," Moto India said with a 17-seconds video clip on Twitter. However, the launch date and price details of the mid-range phone are still under wraps. Going by the company's recent past, Moto M is expected to be made available exclusively either on Flipkart or Amazon India and later at brick-and-mortar retail stores.
