Lenovo is ready to drop a battery behemoth on us this December, it seems. A new Tweet published by @Krispitech on Twitter allegedly lists the specs for the new Moto M.
There’s good news and bad news.

The good news is the Moto M looks like it’s going to pack a huge 5,100mAh battery. That’s large even by power-hungry flagship standards, where most smarphones pack around 3,000mAh to 4,000mAh batteries. The Moto M only offers a Snapdragon 625 processor, according to the leaked specs, which means it should lasts for days and days. The listed talk time is nearly 79 hours.
The Moto M might run old software
Now for the bad news. For whatever reason, it looks like Lenovo wants to kick the Moto M to the market running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. There’s really no excuse to launch a new smartphone with anything older then Android 7.0 Nougat at this point, so we’re hoping this spec sheet is either old or Moto promises a quick turnaround to Nougat.
Moto proved with the Moto Z Play that it’s capable of delivering pretty amazing battery life, and that phone only had a 3,510mAh battery. Imagine what the Moto M’s endurance will be like.
