We don't have an official release date for Lenovo's next Moto handset just yet, but we do have a leaked set of specs that hint at what's to come. According to some grainy renders that made the rounds earlier this week, the Moto M aka "Kung-Fu" will be the first Motorola smartphone to feature a rear-facing fingerprint sensor and its unibody frame puts it solidly in the mid-tier of current generation handsets. Its 5.5-inch 1080p display should also serve well in the Asian markets.

According to TechDroider, the Moto M runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and packs an unknown MediaTek processor plus 4GB of RAM. No surprises here given its mid-tier positioning. On the camera side, the main imager comes in at 16 megapixels while the other one does 8 megapixels. Not bad so far. There's also going to be a Moto M Plus, but the site didn't provide any further info about it -- we'll just have to wait until they launch some time this year to find out.

Update: The original report mistook the specs for the Lenovo P2 as those for this leaked Moto M. We have now updated our article to reflect this correction.
