While a recent leak had hinted at a December release for the upcoming Moto M, a new teaser out of China suggests the smartphone will be unveiled on November 8th, alongside the Lenovo P2. In case you aren’t aware, the Lenovo P2 was first shown off at Lenovo’s IFA press conference in September this year.
In most areas, the Moto M and the Lenovo P2 are rumored to be identical to each other. Both smartphones will feature a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 Full HD display and are going to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 octa-core 14nm chipset. However, the display technologies will be completely different. The Lenovo P2 comes with an AMOLED display, while the Moto M is expected to sport an LCD display. The previous leak also claimed the Moto M will ship with a gigantic 5100mAh capacity battery inside, identical to the Lenovo P2.
The two smartphones will be offered in two basic memory configurations – 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM & 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM. However, in case of the Moto M, the variant with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of onboard storage will only be available in China. Rest of the world will be getting the Moto M with 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
In the camera department however, the Moto M and the Lenovo P2 will be very different from one another. The Moto M is expected to feature a 16MP rear camera with a dual-tone LED flash and an 8MP selfie camera on the front. Lenovo’s P2 on the other hand features a 13MP primary camera with a dual-tone LED flash and a 5MP selfie camera.
