The Moto M is a premium Moto G4 Plus with a metal back.

Lenovo has sent out invites to the media for the launch of the Moto M in the country on December 13. The phone is essentially a premium variant of the Moto G4 Plus with a metal body.

Moto M India invite

The Moto M made its debut in China last month with a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 2.2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P15 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 32GB storage, microSD slot, 16MP camera, 8MP front shooter, 4G with VoLTE, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, USB-C, and a 3050mAh battery. It is likely to be powered by a Snapdragon SoC in the Indian market. On the software side of things, the phone runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

No word on pricing, but it should retail for under ₹16,999. Considering the 32GB variant of the Z2 Plus sells for ₹17,999 and offers much better hardware, it makes sense for Lenovo to price the Moto M slightly lower.
