Motorola will launch its successor to the original Moto M by October, according to a reliable Twitter tipster. The handset, which has been dubbed the Moto M2, is rumored to sport a “cutting edge” MediaTek processor and will be available in two variants: one with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and another with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
It’s believed that Motorola has opted for a MediaTek processor instead of the latest and greatest chip from Qualcomm so that it can keep the device’s price lower than the competition. Don’t expect it to be a slouch when it comes to performance though, because MediaTek makes some great CPUs.
The Moto M2 is expected to debut in China
The Moto M2 is expected to debut in China, before making its way to other regions as we move into 2018. There’s also a good chance that the variant that will launch in the People’s Republic will be slightly more powerful than the models that will hit the shelves in Europe, as consumers in the country typically require more punch.
