To recap, the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based Moto M was launched in India starting at Rs. 15,999. The smartphone is Motorola's first all-metal offering. The device sports a 5.5-inch IPS display with 2.5D curved glass and full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) resolution. The Moto M packs a 2.2GHz quad-core MediaTek Helio P15 processor and is available in two variants - 3GB of RAM with 32GB storage and 4GB of RAM with 64GB storage.

The Moto M sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with Phase-Detection Autofocus (PDAF), and an 8-megapixel front camera. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS/ A-GPS, 4G VoLTE (with support for Indian LTE bands), USB Type-C (USB 3.1), and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Meanwhile, a recent leak suggests that the Moto X Play will receive the Android 7.1.1 update, skipping the Android 7.0 update entirely. Since the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update started rolling out last week, it is unsure as to exactly which Nougat update Moto M will be receiving.
Motorola did not let out a specific date from when the Nougat update will start rolling out. The tweet, however, hints that the rollout will begin soon enough so Moto M users should keep a look out for it.
