Moto M shows up at TENAA with 5.5" screen, metal body, rear fingerprint scanner

Vlad, 30 August, 2016

Mere hours ago we reported on a rumor claiming that Lenovo is working on a new Moto-branded handset that will have a rear fingerprint scanner. And now exactly such a device has been spotted at TENAA, the Chinese agency akin to the US FCC.

However, the Moto M has been claimed to sport the model number XT1663 (and in fact this phone has been caught in a benchmark database too a while back). The smartphone seen at TENAA (and pictured below for your viewing pleasure) is the XT1662. So this may be another handset entirely, perhaps the Moto M Plus.

Or maybe this is the Moto M. Then again, it could be launched with any other branding. At this point, it's just not 100% certain what it will be called. On the other hand, what is obvious from TENAA's images is that we're dealing with a phone with a full body metal construction, and a slightly rounded back reminiscent of older Motorola devices.

As for specs, TENAA hasn't revealed much yet. The XT1662 has a 5.5-inch display, a 3,000 mAh battery, 4G LTE support, and it runs Android obviously (but the exact version isn't mentioned). Its dimensions are 151 x 75 x 8 mm.

If it is in any way related to the XT1663, then it might also get the MediaTek MT6750 chipset (with a 1.9 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16 MP main camera, an 8 MP selfie shooter, and Marshmallow on board. All this said, do keep in mind that these two could end up being completely different devices.
