Lenovo’s metal body mid-range smartphone, the Moto M, that recently went official in China was today unleashed in India, priced at 15,999 INR (for the 3GB RAM variant).
The new Moto M has a 5.5-inch Full HD display, is the first Moto phone with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and brandishes a metal body with dual nano-coating that makes it resistant to splashes.
The handset is powered by 2.2GHz octa-core Helio P15 chip that, according to MediaTek, will provide 10 percent performance boost over Helio P10. Since this is a 28nm process based true octa-core chip (rather than a big.LITTLE architecture chip as Helio P10) we will be watching out if power efficiency takes a hit at the expense of the performance boost.
The base variant includes 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, while a more expensive model with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage will also retail in India. For now, the Moto M will be running Android Marshmallow, but it you can expect the Android Nougat update to be around the corner.
The handset houses a 16MP rear camera with PDAF and dual Tone flash and an 8MP front selfie shooter. Other features include 4G VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and 3050mAh battery
