It was revealed earlier this week that the Moto M will soon be treated to Android 7.0 Nougat, which is a real boost for owners and would-be owners of the device. It’s not uncommon for mid-range handsets to be quickly forgotten when it comes to firmware updates, but the global appeal of the Moto M will only be enhanced by such news. In addition to launches in parts of the Asian and Arab world, the Moto M is now being peddled to consumers in Europe.
The Moto M is available as of today Slovakia at a starting cost of €279 ($290). It is without question that other nations will be drafted in very soon, so if you are based in Europe and the Moto M is on your radar, one suspects that your wait is almost over. For now, it seems the Czech Republic, Russia and Hungary will be among the first along with Slovakia, but the handset could also reach Western parts as well.
The Motorola Moto M includes a MediaTek Helio P15 chipset clocked at 2.2 GHz, with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage at base level. There’s also a more capable model touting 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of on-board storage, though both variants include microSD expansion capabilities. There is a 16-megapixel main sensor and 8-megapixel front camera, along with a 3050 mAh battery to keep the lights on. On the software front, you get Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box but as aforementioned, Nougat shouldn’t be too far away.
