Motorola and Lenovo launched video trailers that hint at a common unveiling of the Motorola Moto M and the Lenovo P2 during an event in Guanzhou, China. The event where the two devices will be showcased is scheduled for Nov. 8.
Motorola Moto M Specs And Release Date
Quite a number of leaks depicting the Moto M landed recently. The handset carries the "Kung Fu" nickname and serial number XT1662.
Processing power for the device comes via a MediaTek Helio P10 SoC, which is backed by 4 GB of RAM. Moto M features a 5.5-inch display that is neatly protected by Gorilla Glass 4. The device sports a main camera of 16 megapixels, while the selfie snapper has an 8-megapixel sensor.
The juice keeps flowing through the Moto M thanks to a 3,000 mAh power source. Security-wise, the smartphone features a fingerprint scanner under the main camera, on the back of the device.
Rumors are that Moto M will come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, and the gadget will come in two color options: Silver and Gold. Motorola recently released a list of phones that will get Android 7.0 Nougat, but sadly the Moto M is not on it.
Insiders familiar with the matter point out that the phone is scheduled for a December release, and it will come embedded with Microsoft apps.
Lenovo P2 Specs And Release Date
Lenovo showcased its P2 device in September during the IFA 2016. The handset holsters a 5.5-inch screen capable of displaying resolutions of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels.
Below the chassis sits an eight-core Snapdragon 625 CPU. The default storage and RAM size will depend on the region. The European Lenovo P2 model will get 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of standard space, whereas the Chinese variant will sport 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of native storage.
Potential customers of the P2 should know that Lenovo featured the phone with a microSD card slot, which means that you can ramp up the storage space up to 128 GB.
In charge of the graphics is an Adreno 506 GPU.
Mobile photography fans are looking at a 13-megapixel main camera in the P2, while the selfie snapper only packs a 5-megapixel sensor. The power source of the device is massive, at 5,100 mAh. Security-wise, Lenovo P2 owners are also getting a fingerprint scanner, but the OEM did not place it on the rear of the device. Instead, the fingerprint sensor is embedded in the home button.
We are looking forward to the Nov. 8 event, when more information about the two smartphones should become available, alongside an availability road map.
