There have been a lot of rumors over the past few weeks that Motorola is preparing a new mid-range handset that’s going to be launched in the near future. The company today unveiled the Moto M by listing it on Tmall which is basically China’s version of Amazon. This mid-range handset has a metal unibody build but its specs are nothing to write home about, but then again, it does cost $295.
Moto M features a splash-proof metal unibody build that packs a MediaTek Helio P15 eightcore processor inside it along with 4GB of RAM, a 16 megapixel rear camera, a 5.5 inch full HD display, 32GB of storage, dual SIM support as well as support for Dolby Atmos sound. It doesn’t have the rumored 5,100mAh battery, unfortunately.
Motorola’s mid-range lineup has made quite a new for itself as models like the Moto G and Moto X Pure Edition have performed very well in the market. However, this latest addition to the lineup doesn’t seem to be a device that can take the baton forward from those great handsets.
This handset has only been listed on Tmall in China for now and it’s unclear if and when Motorola is going to release it in other markets across the globe. That possibility hasn’t really been ruled out yet and it’s quite likely that the Moto M might eventually make its way to markets outside China.
