While the month of September may be busy with the much-awaited iPhone 8 and other announcements from Apple, Indian smartphone buyers can look forward to action in October also. This time, it will be Lenovo which may be releasing its next M series Moto smartphone, the Moto M2. While the actual release is still three months away, some renders have already appeared of the phone and are shared here.
The Moto M2 is the sequel to the Moto M launched previously and will sport a 5.5inch full HD 1080p display. It has also been disclosed that the phone will be released by Lenovo in two variations, 4GB and 6GB and the corresponding internal storage might be 32GB and 64GB respectively.
There is also speculation that this new smartphone to be launched this October may be fitted with a “cutting edge” processor from MediaTek. Here again, different reports speak of different possibilities. One of them feels the manufacturer may release the Moto M2 with one set of chips for the Chinese market and a slightly lower range processor for the other markets. The reason being given is to keep the costs lower for the more price sensitive markets.
Whatever the purpose or the actual course adopted by Lenovo, the expectation among the market watchers is that this new phone will try and take on some of the top brands like LG, Sony and even Samsung. The strategy is to pack the phone with the power and the features that the popular brands offer but keep the prices at a much lower level thereby giving more value for money.
Keeping in view the different specifications that the predecessor, the Moto M had, it will be justifiable to assume that the OS will be the Android Nougat version 7.1.1 and the battery would also be closer to the 4000mAh mark and the cameras and other provisions will be made to match the latest developments in the smartphone space.
The Indian market is definitely on Lenovo’s radar and the Moto M2 will be seen in the country in October 2017. Watch this space for more details as and when the phone gets released.
