Lenovo started a new series of smartphones with the Moto M last year. It was a mid-ranger with an all metal design. Indian user’s are now reporting that their handset is receiving Android 7.0 Nougat.
The Moto M was launched in two RAM/storage options- 3GB+32GB costed Rs.15,999 while the higher end 4GB+64GB model costed Rs.17,999. The smartphone came with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the box.
The Nougat update weighs in at a significant 1.5 giga-bytes. The only major addition noticed is the addition of the Google Duo app. Other than that, it’s just the jump to the newer version of Android. Even the change-log only mentions the addition of the Duo app.
The Moto M sports a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display (1080×1920 pixels) with a 2.5D glass on top for protection. Talking about specs, the smartphone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P15 chipset coupled with 3/4 GB of RAM. The phone comes with a 3050mAh battery with support for Turbo Charging.
As for optics, the Moto M comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera with support for Phase-Detection Autofocus. Up front is an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies. The phone has USB Type-C connectivity and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Moto M launched as a Flipkart exclusive smartphone and was recently made available for offline purchase. But with the Moto G5 Plus available in around the same price point, the Moto M is a tough sell at the moment.
