Lenovo Moto M arrives at the UAE with stock Android inside; model is compatible with U.S. carriers
One big difference between the two Moto M units is found under the hood. Instead of the MediaTek Helio P15 SoC that powers the model unveiled in China, the handset announced today happens to have the Snapdragon 617 chipset under the hood. That means that the device has an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU inside, along with the Adreno 405 GPU.
The XT1664 offers a model with 3GB of RAM/32GB of internal storage, along with one sporting the 4GB of RAM/64GB of internal storage found on the XT1662. A 128 capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking additional storage. A hybrid dual nano SIM tray includes one tray that doubles as the microSD slot, and a Type-C USB port is on board.
A16MP rear-facing camera carries an f/2.0 aperture and PDAF auto focus, while the 8MP front-facing snapper comes with beautification software to make your selfies look great. Pictures can be housed for two-years on Google Photos at their original quality. A rear-facing fingerprint scanner allows you to unlock your phone and verify your identity with just a fingertip. The 3050mAh battery offers a rapid recharge system, and P2i's nano-coating protects the Moto M from specs and light rain.
No pricing or availability information was made available. What we can tell you is that when the phone was unveiled in China, it was priced at the equivalent of $295 USD.
