Motorola Moto M now official: 5.5-inch 1080p screen, octa-core CPU and 4GB RAM
As expected, the Motorola Moto M is finally official, launched in China today by the manufacturer. The phone leaked like a sieve, which means that there aren't any surprises to speak of. The Moto M carries a 5.5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution and 2.5D curved glass. Powering the handset is a MediaTek Helio P15 chipset with an octa-core 2.2GHz CPU and the Mali-T860MP2 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage.

The 16MP rear-facing camera comes with PDAF focusing, and an 8MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats; a fingerprint scanner is placed right under the rear camera. Keeping the lights on is a 3050mAh battery, and a USB Type-C port is included. P2i's nano-coating protects the Moto M from light rain and spills, and Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed.
The Motorola Moto M (XT1662) will go on sale November 11th, priced at the equivalent of $295 USD. Color options are Gold and Silver. At this point, there are no plans to bring this model into the states.

They seem to have messed with the software it does not look as "stock" as the degular Moto's from the past.

It looks pretty stock to me, aside from the apps, besides this is intended for the Chinese market... Sigh... I miss the old Motorola.

This one if you switch out Moto to any other brand, it would work, would look just the same, this is Lenovo, not Motorola, really. Esp with Mediatek P15. And it's not avail in all black or "any colour you like" (Pink Floyd).
