Motorola’s officially launched the Moto M after weeks of numerous leaks and rumors revealed a number of key details about the phone. The handset has now been listed on the brand’s Chinese site and is up for sale over at Lenovo’s website.
The Moto M is priced at CNY 1999 (roughly $295 or Rs 19700). The cost marks it for the mid-range market sector and its specs reflect that status for the most part. A layer of nano-coating protects the phone from minor splashes. It’s been carved out of metal and is the first Motorola offering to feature a fingerprint scanner on its back.
In terms of photography, the Moto M comes with a 16MP rear camera which is accompanied by PDAF, an aperture of f/2.0, and dual-LED CCT flash. The module has been paired with an 8MP front-facing snapper for selfies and video calls.
