A rumoured Lenovo Moto M has been doing the rounds in the rumour mill for a while now. A leak back in September showed us our first glimpse at the phone with a surprising metal unibody construction and a rear facing fingerprint reader. Okay so this is so common these days you say, why is it surprising? Well, this has never been done to a Moto.
And it seems, we’re starting the month with fresh Moto M images and leaked specs coming from Steve Hemmerstoffer, who is responsible for leaking plenty of other devices and details about those devices in the past.
The popular NowhereElseFr editor and OnLeaks superstar has a good track record preceding him, so we would say this is as legit as leaks can get. In regards to the specs, the ones mentioned by Hemmerstoffer look to be ripped straight from the screen on the phone, so chances are quite likely that what consumers can see here are what they will see when the phone is made official in the near future. Based on the images and the details mentioned, the Moto M will come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space, while coming powered by a MediaTek Helio P15 processor clocked at 2.2GHz.
The unit is said to come with a 5.5-inch 1920×1080 display, a 13 MP main camera and an 8 MP front shooter. Lenovo has gone with USB Type-C for the charging and data transfer port that’s located on the bottom of the device which makes the Moto M right on par with the latest devices as far as this single detail is concerned. While earlier rumours claimed a 5100 mAh battery for the Moto M, this new leak suggests a 3,050 mAh battery.
Though the phone has a seemingly good construction and pretty fair specifications, it also doesn’t seem like it should be an over-priced one. Although, what is most surprising about these leaks is that the software on the phone, while based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, looks far from stock android.
Perhaps it is just the app launcher and not a lot of skinning has been done, it is still surprising to see a Moto with a not so stock look. There are also rumours that the Moto M might ship with bundled Microsoft apps. I hope this is just a one off experiment from Lenovo, because this smartphone definitely doesn’t look or feel like a Moto.
What do you think about this new direction? It could be that the device is made only for asian markets, considering the entire build and the launcher style. SWould you be interested if the device is available worldwide?
