Grasshopper, Lenovo Moto M is nicknamed "Kung-Fu" and will launch internationally?10
Just yesterday, we showed you live images of the Lenovo Moto M (XT-1662). Originally expected to be launched in China only, a new report on Friday states that there will be a version of the phone that will be launched internationally. The report says that the version of the Moto M getting a wider release could be model number (XT-1663). When we say that the phone will launch internationally, it most likely will still be limited to a release in Asia.
According to those in the know, the Lenovo Moto M carries the code name of "Kung-Fu." The device has already been certified by China's TENAA regulatory agency, which revealed the specs of the phone. The model features a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The MediaTek MT6755 chipset is under the hood, with an octa-core 2.1GHz CPU and the Mali-T860 MP2 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 16MP camera graces the back of the handset, while an 8MP selfie snapper can be found in front. A 3000mAh battery powers the whole shebang.
While the new reports says that the XT-1663 will be the international version of the Moto M, a previous GFXBench benchmark test of the model revealed a device with a 4.6-inch screen and a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Powered by the MediaTek MT6750 chipset, the handset carries an octa-core 1.9GHz CPU and the Mali-T860 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of flash memory. The camera combo from back to front weighs in at 16MP/8MP.
In other words, the XT-1663 appears to be a compact version of the Lenovo Moto M rather than a copy of the XT-1662 for the rest of Asia. We should find out for sure when Lenovo introduces the Moto M. Since the phone already has its TENAA certification, the unveiling could happen soon.
