Update: It is likely that this placard is referring to the Lenovo P2, already officially revealed at IFA 2016, but leaked in further detail here. Check out this story for more details about the Moto M.
Do we need another Motorola device this year? We’ve got Moto Z’s to last us through the end of the year and a Moto G slate that looks to be still alive and kicking. Well, what we have been talking about is the Moto M, something like a Moto Z Play, but bigger.
A leaked promotional placard layout leaked by @krispitech on Twitter tells us about a phone that will launch in December with Android Marshmallow, a Snapdragon 625 processor, a 1.5W speaker (maximum output of 85dB), a headphone jack (rare as it is for Motos to have nowadays) and a weird configuration of memory: 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of storage in China while the rest of the world gets 3GB or 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 32GB of storage. Kinda tells where Lenovo’s heart is in driving Motorola for this product, though we do see microSD expandability, here.

A prior “in the wild” leak showed a version of this device, supposedly codenamed internally as the XT1662, with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, so we should expect a little availability bleed out from China on this front. That leak also outed a 16-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
There’s no mention of a fingerprint sensor, but a 5,100mAh battery makes up for that. It supports 24W fast charging at 4.5A.
December is all that’s hinted for the phone’s release. Maybe it will be called the Moto M, maybe it will be called something else. But the early winter season should see at least one new Lenovo phone out.
