Motorola Moto M
Moto M launches in China with lacklustre specifications amid high demand for Motorola handsets Motorola

The Moto M is finally up for sale on Lenovo's Chinese website while the Motorola website now carries the advert about the newly launched flagship phone. Featuring an all-metal body, the phone runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out-of-the-box instead of the famed Nougat update or Android 7.1.

Among other lacklustre specifications, the Moto M ships with a Mediatek MT6755 CPU in place of the industry-standard Qualcomm chip, a 32GB memory expansion slot and 4GB of RAM. On the camera front, it features a 16MP rear sensor and an 8MP front sensor.

The phone is powered by a large 3060mAh battery, which is bigger than the one on Moto Z but smaller than the Z Play. It also features an USB Type-C port at the bottom.

As the phone is exclusively designed for the Chinese market, it is unlikely to make its way into the US or North America. Nevertheless, interested users can go ahead and purchase the handset via Lenovo's Chinese site for ¥1999.00 which roughly translates to $410SGD or $294USD.
