After the “mega leak” last week, two new live images of the upcoming Moto M mid-range smartphone have leaked online today. The fact that we are starting to see new Moto M leaks on a regular basis could mean that the official launch could be drawing near.
One of the images shows an information screen, which confirms that the handset will ship with the older Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system out of the box and not the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. The XT1662 model number can also be seen quite clearly.
The Moto M was certified by China’s TENAA last month, but so far no confirmed release date has surfaced online. It will feature a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution and is going to be powered by the MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 octa-core SoC clocked at 2 GHz. Motorola will be offering the Moto M in multiple memory configurations, with either 3 or 4GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB onboard storage. At the back, the Moto M will feature a 16MP primary camera, below which there will be a circular fingerprint scanner. On the front, the Moto M will be equipped with an 8MP camera for selfies. There will also be a 3000mAh capacity battery inside, which isn’t particularly impressive but not too bad either.
It is expected that the Moto M will be announced in China first, after which it could be rolled out in a few other markets around the world. However, as we mentioned above, the release date remains a complete mystery at this point.
