New images of upcoming ‘Moto M’ leak

Motorola is reportedly working to launch a pair of new all metal smartphones, one of which is currently codenamed ‘Kung Fu’ but will likely launch as the Moto M.

It’s not the first time information about the device has surfaced online but new renders along with update spec info give a better indication of the final handset that could arrive when Motorola officially unveils it.

According to TechDroider, there will be two versions of the device – a Moto M and an M Plus – and that the smaller of the two will have a 5.5-inch 1080p HD display, 4GB of RAM and a 16-megapixel camera on the rear. Fear not, selfie fans, you should get a perfectly respectable 8-megapixel front-facing sensor too.

It remains to be seen whether the device will replace the Moto X in the lineup, or be introduced as a complementary device. Interestingly, TechDroider says that manufacture of the handset appears to have been led by Motorola rather than Lenovo, its parent company, as was previously thought.

Images that have surfaced so far have shown a gold unibody design and fingerprint sensor located on the back of the handset, which is a location often favoured by other handset makers, rather than Motorola.

There’s no word on pricing or release date as yet, but it looks like the Moto M and M Plus are shaping up to bring a touch of the premium to the mid-range of the market.
