According to a new leak, the upcoming Moto M mid-range smartphone will be released in the month of December this year. While numerous alleged live images and renders of the handset have surfaced over the past several weeks, this is the first time that a release timeframe has been rumored.
Along with the release date, the latest leak also sheds more light on the specifications of the Moto M. As revealed in the TENAA listing a few weeks back, the smartphone is going to be powered by the Snapdragon 625 octa-core chipset, paired with 3GB of RAM. For the Chinese market however, the Moto M will be equipped with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The Chinese version will also come with higher 64GB of built-in storage as opposed to 32GB on the global variant.
Unlike what previous reports had suggested, the latest leak points to a huge 5100mAh capacity battery inside the Moto M. Smartphones with a 5000+ mAh capacity battery aren’t very common, so this could be Moto M’s single biggest USP. Like other 2016 Moto smartphones, the Moto M too will support fast charging, with a 24W (4.5A) rapid charger. The humongous battery will reportedly allow the Moto M to deliver a talk time of 78.69 hours and standby time of up to 768.61 hours.
Other details revealed by the latest leak include a 1.5W loudspeaker, dual microphones, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Lenovo configured TI TAS2555 SMART amplifier. The smartphone will ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, which is slightly disappointing.
