There are persistent rumors that confirm that the Moto X will be released in 2016, and will include specs and features that would be worth every penny spent on it.
And to prove that the Moto X has not permanently signed off as others would like to believe, its 2016 model has in fact been given certification in China. It is a tangible proof that the smartphone’s maker is still bent in conquering the heart and minds of more users.
This is certainly good news for Motorola, as the latest iteration of its Moto X handset – bearing the model number XT1662 – was officially certified by China Compulsory Certificate (CCC).
Obtaining a certification from the CCC for the Moto X is necessary for all manufactured goods that enter China to ensure that products will pass the nation’s stringent safety protocol, according to Tech Times.
Specifically, the XT1662 code refers to the Moto X 2016 as confirmed by a recent leak of GFXBench. It was also in June of this year when the Tech Times also reported that the XT1662 tag was most likely meant for the latest version of the Moto X.
The CCC listing bared that the Moto X 2016 would most likely be powered by MediaTek’s Helio P10 MT6755 chipset, and at the same time, offer support for Turbo charging.
The Helio P10 SoC is a mid-range processor. This could mean that Motorola is looking for a way to shift the Moto X line to the mid bracket, which can be considered a strategic move on the part of the handset maker.
According to Gizbot, the CCC listing also revealed that the so-called Moto X 2016 will come packed with 3GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt storage on board, a 16MP/8MP camera package. It will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
And as the Moto X 2016’s supposed specs and features have been highlighted by the CCC listing, there is a very big chance that the model will be joining the Moto line up that will be shipped outside of China.
