Motorola already made it clear that the Moto X will remain on the market and that the Moto Z will be an entirely different line. Following the release of the Moto Z, attention now shifts to a Moto X 2016, following the appearance of a new device spotted at a benchmarking site.
Now, a Motorola handset surfaced over at the GFXBench benchmarking site bearing a model number XT1662. Not only did the spotted Motorola device affirm that the Moto X line is staying, it has now started a whole new wave of rumors to an alleged Moto X 2016 model.
Moto X 2016 Unofficial Specs
The Moto X 2016 will reportedly feature a 4.6-inch full HD display (1920×1080 pixels), powered by a MediaTek MT6755 chipset, an octa-core Helio 10 processor clocked at 2.1 GHz, Mali-T860 graphics, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage that is expandable via microSD, Time News UK reported.
Moreover, the alleged Moto X 2016 will also come with a 16 MP main camera, an 8 MP front-facing shooter and come pre-installed with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The battery information was not specified on the listing.
Moto X 2016 Will Be a Mid-Rrange Smartphone
The specs enumerated above hint that the Moto X 2016 will be a midrange device. This somehow redefines the Moto X line, which was best known as a line carrying flagship specs.
The notable changes include the screen display and the chipset in use. Looking back at previous Moto X devices, screen displays normally measured about 5-inches. The alleged Moto X 2016 only totes a slightly smaller 4.6-inch display.
The new Moto X will bank on a MediaTek chipset, departing from the traditional Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets current and preceding Moto X models sport according to Tech Times.
It may only be a matter of time before the device turns up at TENAA or the FCC for proper certification. Once that happens, the next thing that consumer will want to know is the official release date and of course the price of the purported device.
