It probably won’t be long before Lenovo and Motorola start running out of letters for all their smartphones. Well, obviously that’s not quite true, but they are about to add another letter to their mobile alphabet in the form of the Moto M. And even though no one has talked about it yet, apparently this new phone is set to drop before the end of the year.

The truth is we are never entirely sure what any of these letters stand for. It’s like they gave the Boggle dice a shake and picked whatever came out on top. Is the Moto G supposed to stand for “good value” and the Moto E for “economical choice”? Maybe it’s called the Moto Z because you add the Moto Mods modular bits to the end of it? Who knows?

In the case of the leaked Moto M, which you can see pictured above, it doesn’t look like anything too exciting is going to happen on the design front, aside from perhaps the rear-mounted fingerprint reader on the full metal build. What’s far more interesting is the spec sheet with a particularly emphasis on the battery.

According to the leaked specs, the Moto M will be getting a positively massive 5,100mAh battery with a super fast 4.5A rapid charger to boot. This is said to deliver nearly 80 hours of talk time and over a month of standby time. Really? Really?!?!

The rest of the guts align squarely with the mid-range, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD, up to 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage, plus a microSD expansion slot, a feature that’s becoming increasingly rare. Best guess points toward a 16MP main camera and a 8MP selfie shooter. And yes, it’s got a headphone jack, which is sadly becoming a “feature” these days.

The Moto M won’t be the first phone with a battery this size — the Acer Liquid Zest has a 5,000mAh battery — but that doesn’t color us any less interested. No word on price, but given the mid-range specs, a mid-range price would be appropriate. We won’t have long to find out either way as the Moto M is expected to launch this December.
