The Moto M is the next Moto smartphone to be greenlit for the local market after the latest Moto Z and G series handsets.
Pricing and release details have not been disclosed, though Moto M units with 32GB storage and 3GB RAM and 64GB and 4GB are already available in India for 15,999 rupees ($239) and 17,999 rupees ($269), respectively. It’s likely that the base model will retail for around P12,000 here, while the higher-end version with more memory will cost you at least P1,000 more.
The phone features a metal body — a first for Moto devices — and a 5.5-inch, full-resolution panel of the LCD variety. The fingerprint reader on the back provides added security, while the Dolby Atmos-branded sound system should make listening to music and watching movies more enjoyable, even if only slightly.

On the imaging front, a 16-megapixel unit takes care of main camera duties; for selfies, there’s an 8-megapixel camera. Processing power is expected to come from either a MediaTek Helio P10 or P15 processor, but we’re hoping it’s the latter — even if it’s only a teensy bit faster.
As with the current generation of Moto phones, the Moto M will ship with Android Marshmallow, with the promise of Nougat to come soon.
