Lenovo/Motorola continues to flesh out its Moto smartphone lineup, and we’ve been impressed with what we’ve seen so far in recent months (Moto Z/Moto Z Force, Moto Z Play). A new member of the Moto smartphone family will soon be making its way to the public according to new leaks, and it should be a boon for customers that value battery life.
The Moto M is reportedly powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz. The smartphone is said to include 3GB or 4GB of RAM (depending on the variant), 32GB internal storage, a microSD slot for expansion (up to 128GB), a 5.5-inch 1080p display and a rear-mounted fingerprint reader.
But perhaps the most intriguing feature is the massive 5100 mAh (non-removable) battery that will power the device. For comparison, the Moto Z and Moto Z Force have 2600 mAh and 3500 mAh batteries respectively, while the Moto Z Play has a 3510 mAh battery. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the Moto M get around two days of heavy usage with ease given the lower-end processor onboard.
Other rumored specs include a 16MP rear camera and an 8MP selfie camera. The smartphone’s aluminum unibody is also said to be available in a natural silver finish or in gold.

The Moto M will reportedly launch this December, and it will unfortunately come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow preinstalled instead of Android 7.0 Nougat. We’re certain that more details will leak between now and it’s official unveil (we’re looking at you, Evan Blass), so we’ll keep you informed as the leaks continue to drip.
