Motorola has unveiled the Moto Z, the Moto G4 and the Moto E3 so far this year, with the entire range undergoing a refresh and compounding to cover almost every section of the pricing spectrum. But it seems that they’re not done quite yet. Numerous leaks point towards a new lineup which will reportedly sit between the Moto X and Moto G, called the Moto M. And the first device in that lineup, the XT1662 has just shown up on the TENAA certification website.
The same device was also spotted at GFXBench earlier this year, with leaks at the time detailing a 4.6″ 1080p display, 3GB of RAM and 16MP and 8MP shooters on the back and front respectively. However, the TENAA listing varies on the display size, specifying a 5.5″ display, and adding a 3000 mAh to the list of features. While the TENAA listing appears blank to us, one website seems to have got their hands on a bunch of shots of the device, and the images show off a metal unibody, a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel, as well a textual Moto logo on the front.
The rear of the device bears the signature Moto batwing logo, but towards the bottom for some reason. It could have been possible to incorporate the logo with the fingerprint sensor, but the technical challenges may have been too high to undertake for a non-flagship device.
With no word on a Moto X successor this year, the Moto M might fill the void created between the Moto G and Moto Z. The device looks good on paper, and with a purported launch date of later this year, we’re a short time away from finding that out.
Are you anticipating the launch of Moto M? Will you be getting your hands on it when it launches? What are your thoughts on Motorola launching yet another lineup? Sounds off in the comments below!
