The Moto M smartphone will be available in its Grey colour variant in the country via Flipkart on Monday, with the sale starting at 12pm IST. To recall, Lenovo made the announcement on Friday, and the smartphone was originally launched by the company back in December in Gold and Silver colour variants.
The highlight of the Moto M is that it’s the first smartphone from the brand with an all-metal body. As before, it will be available at Rs. 15,999 and Rs. 17,999 for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage and 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variants, respectively. The company is also detailing a Flipkart exchange offer with a discount up to Rs. 15,000, which brings down the price of the two Moto M variants down to Rs. 999 and Rs. 2,999. However, even the Apple iPhone 6 does not fetch the full Rs. 15,000 in the Moto M exchange.
The dual-SIM (Nano-SIM), Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-powered Moto M has a 5.5-inch IPS display with 2.5D curved glass and full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution. The new Moto smartphone packs the 2.2GHz quad-core MediaTek Helio P15 processor under the hood. For storage expansion, Moto M users can slip microSD cards of up to 128GB capacity in the secondary SIM card slot.
On the imaging front, Moto M has a 16-megapixel rear camera with Phase-Detection Autofocus (PDAF), and an 8-megapixel front camera for selfies. The Moto M connectivity suite includes Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS/ A-GPS, 4G VoLTE (with support for Indian LTE bands), USB Type-C (USB 3.1), and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Moto M’s battery is rated at 3050mAh and supports fast-charging; the smartphone measures 151.35×75.35×7.85mm and weighs 163 grams. Other key features of the new Moto M smartphone are fingerprint sensor and Dolby Atmos support.
