Unannounced Motorola smartphone spotted online, might be the Moto M

Motorola Moto M Plus

After announcing the Moto Z and the Moto Z ForceMotorola focussed on the mid-range smartphones. It recently announced the Moto Z Play, and now it seems to be prepping for the launch of a new mid-range smartphone. As we all know, the Moto M was already certified by TENAA. It features a metal body and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Now, an unannounced Motorola smartphone has been spotted online, and we think that it could be the Moto M.


The Motorola Moto M (with codename XT1663) has also visited the GFXBench’s database, revealing its 4.6-inch display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. Coming to the hardware department, it is expected to feature a MediaTek MT6750 processor with an octa-core CPU clocked at 1.5GHz and Mali-T860 MP2 GPU. It is coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space.

The Moto M could feature a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The rear-facing camera supports 1080p video recording at 30 frames per second. Along with the Moto M, the beefed up variant of the device dubbed the Moto M Plus could also be announced. The Moto M Plus could sport a slightly larger, 5.5-inch 1080p display and running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system.

The official launch date of the upcoming Moto M and the Moto M plus haven’t been announced yet by Lenovo, but we expect these smartphones to be announced soon since they’ve already passed certifications in China. The company revealed a few days back that it will release Android 7.0 Nougat to 17 smartphone models in Q4, 2016. Lenovo has also launched the Moto Z and Moto Z Play in India, and they went on sale earlier this week. The company hasn’t launched the Moto Z Force in the country, though.
