As expected, Lenovo subsidiary Motorola is expanding its Moto line of smartphones with the launch of a Moto M.

The new phone is a mid-range device with a few premium touches and it’s now available in China for 1999 yuan, or about $295.

The price, spec sheet, and letter of the alphabet all put the Moto M squarely between Motorola’s more affordable Moto G phones and high-end Moto Z handsets.

It has a metal unibody design and a waterproof case, and there’s a fingerprint reader on the back of the phone below the 16MP rear camera.

On the front of the phone, there’s an 8MP camera and a 1920 x 1080 pixel 5.5 inch display.

Other features include a MediaTek Helio P15 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. The phone has a 3,050 mAh battery.

There’s no word on if or when the Moto M will be available outside of China.
