Moto M: Lenovo has come up with a really quirky name for its upcoming device. The company is set to launch its Moto M handset nicknamed ‘Kung-Fu’. The handset was originally expected to launch in China alone, but new reports have emerged that the phone will be launched internationally.
According to PhoneArena, the version of the Moto M getting a wider release could be a model number (XT-1663) and that the phone is most likely going to be limited to a release in Asia. Code named ‘Kung-Fu’, the handset has already been certified by China’s TENAA regulatory agency. Apparently, the device sports a larger display than was first anticipated. , a previous benchmark listing pointed out that the XT1663 variant could equip a smaller 4.6-inch display with 1080×1920 pixel resolution. It’ll feature a 5.5-inch, 1080 x 1920 display with 2.1 GHz MediaTek MT6755 chipset and 3GB RAM plus 32GB of internal storage. Although in the previous listing it was pointed out that Moto M could also run an octa-core 1.9GHz MediaTek SoC instead. Speaking of the camera, there’ll be a 16-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel front camera.
There’ll be a fingerprint sensor on the rear below the camera. Lenovo’s handset will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box or Android 7.0 Nougat. It’s backed by a 3000 mAh. According to rumours, the Moto M could have a full-metal body except for the home button in front. Rumour has it that the price of the device will be lower than Moto Z smartphones.
A couple of days back there were rumours that Lenovo has passed a cross-licensing pact with Microsoft that allows the smartphone maker to pre-install certain Microsoft productivity apps on some Android devices manufactured by the company. One of such device would be the Moto M.
It’s being believed that the Moto M along with Moto Z series will serve as a continuation of the Moto X line.
