The Moto M is one of Lenovo’s mid-range offerings. This handset was originally announced last month in China, and it arrived in India a couple of days ago. Lenovo had confirmed recently that the Moto M will be getting Android 7.0 Nougat soon, and join the likes of the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. That being said, we were wondering when will the company launch this smartphone in Europe, and whether they plan to do it at all. Well, you’ll be glad to know that the company has just introduced this smartphone in Europe as well.
The first European country that the company decided to launch Moto M in is Slovakia, and the official name of the device in the country is the ‘Lenovo Moto M’. Lenovo has ditched the ‘Motorola’ brand when it comes to Moto devices, so this was to be expected. The Moto M starts at €279 ($290) in the country (we still don’t know how much the 4GB RAM variant costs), and is actually expected to hit other markets in Europe really soon, though we do not have any specific details when it comes to that, so we don’t know what countries exactly will Moto M launch in. As far as specs are concerned, the Lenovo Moto M comes with the same spec sheet as the model that launched in China, which means it is fueled by the Helio P10 64-bit octa-core SoC, while the Indian model of the phone comes with the Helio P15 64-bit octa-core processor. The rest of the specs are completely identical, and so is the design of this smartphone.
The Lenovo Moto M features a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, along with 3GB / 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of native storage. As already mentioned, the phone is fueled by the Helio P10 SoC, and the 3,050mAh battery is included in this package as well. The 16-megapixel shooter is placed on the back of the Moto M, and an 8-megapixel snapper can be found on the phone’s front side. This smartphone is made out of metal, and its fingerprint scanner is located on the back. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on the Moto M, and on top of it, you’ll find some of the company’s applications, even though this is an almost stock build of Android.
