It appears that Lenovo has big plans this November and is busy prepping a launch even for not one, but two brand new smartphones.
While unconfirmed by Lenovo, a promotional flyer leaked on the 29 October which pictures the Lenovo P2 that debuted at IFA 2016 and an unannounced Moto-branded device dubbed the Moto M. Based on leaks and rumours, the pair are expected to fit into Lenovo's mid-range family of smartphones.
The flyer image lists the possible launch event date as the 8 November in Guanzhou, China. While the P2 is already a known quantity after it went on display in Berlin, the Moto M will draw some attention as the cut-price offerings in the wider Moto range expands beyond the Moto E and Moto G.
Codenamed 'Kung-Fu' and carrying the model number XT-1662, the Moto M was recently outed in a TENAA certification and pictured in several in-the-wild photos. The 5.5in device is expected to arrive with a 1080p screen, MediaTek's Helio P10 processor, Mali-T860 GPU and 4GB of RAM.
The design sticks closely to the Lenovo subsidiary's recent output, resembling the Moto Z family in particular. A rear fingerprint sensor, 16 megapixel main and 8 megapixel selfie camera and a 3,000mAh battery. As for colour options, so far the Moto M has only been seen in metallic Gold or Silver.
The Lenovo P2 – also referred to as the "Vibe P2" – is mostly comparable in terms of specs, sporting the same 5.5in 1080p display measurements. But while some components could under-perform when put up against the Moto M (for example, the camera drops to 13 megapixels and the RAM lowers to 3GB), the massive 5,100 mAh battery should add to its appeal. The P2 also opts for Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 processor and an Adreno 506 GPU.
Both mobiles are expected to include 32GB of internal storage and run Android Marshmallow out of the box, although we will have to wait until 8 November to see if the large amount of leaks were correct.
