Lenovo owned Motorola has launched the stunning new all-metal Moto M in India on 13 December at a very lucrative prices of Rs.15,999 for 32GB variant and Rs.17,999 for a 64GB variant. The phone comes with a tagline “mesmerizing, masterful, majestic (just like you)’’ and has it all, to be on to the buyer’s list.
So let’s unfold some technical specifications and mesmerizing features of all new Moto M
Stylishly designed in all metal, the Moto M is all you need to stay in vogue. There is no denying that metal is the new black in Smartphone world , makers everywhere embracing this and launching smartphones that feature metal bodies, and the Moto M is just that. Their is no plastic, fabric or rubber used here; the Moto M rocks a full metal unibody design with antenna bands on the top and bottom edges.
With the Moto M the makers first time tried the fingerprint sensor at the rear, below the camera module unlike Moto Z and Moto G4 where it is located below the screen. Because of this the Moto logo has shifted to the bottom of the device, which definitely looks unique and giving more premium look to the phone.
On the hardware front, the Moto M is a typical mid-range smartphone with the following specifications:
Display: The Moto M features a 5.5 inch IPS LCD display with full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution at a pixel density of 401 PPI and 2.5D curved glass. The Moto M display offers sharp picture quality and good color reproduction which is the benchmark of Motorola devices and you will not be disappointed this time also.
Processor: The Moto M packs a 2.1 GHz Octa core Mediatek Helio P15 processor under the hood. Helio P15 processor is good enough for those who aren’t power users but is not the high performer that some were hoping for at this price. The phone seems a little out of place in a lineup of phones with Qualcomm chips.
Storage: The device boasts either a 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage or the higher variant packed in 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage with expandable memory upto 128GB via micro SD card.
Cameras: On the imaging front the Moto M flashes a hefty 16MP rear camera with dual LED flash and PDAF(phase detection auto focus) support. The front unit comprises a 8 MP camera with inbuilt beautification features for your selfie needs.
Battery: The Moto M houses a 3050mAh battery with Turbo charging support. The capacity of 3050mAh might disappoint some heavy users but for normal usage it is enough to last a day.
Speaker: The Moto M’s speaker is at the bottom of the phone and features Dolby ATMOS tuning for better sound quality. It is the first Moto phone to come with Dolby ATMOS sound and it’s a great addition to the device.
Sensors: Sensors on the Moto M are Fingerprint Sensor, Vibration Sensor, Accelerometer Sensor, Proximity Sensor, E-compass, Gyroscope and Ambient Light Sensor.
OS : The Smartphone runs Motorola’s barebones Android 6.0 Marshmallow implementation and expected to get the update to latest Android 7.0 Nougat soon.
Connectivity : On the connectivity front you get the usual connectivity options, including support for 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth v4.1 .
On the whole the Motorola Moto M is a beautiful, well-built phone that puts aside the typical approach of higher performance and good software and makes its new way with more focus laid on styling and finishing to meet the “life-style centric” approach of consumers.
When it comes to specifications the Moto M’s display, camera , and fingerprint sensor are all top tier specs but the makers still leave a little to be desired in terms of processor and battery capacity.
An Qualcomm processor and 4000mAh battery might take the phone to another level. The reason to have a all new Moto M is if you want the fantastic build quality and feel of having a metal unibody smartphone.
