Motorola XT1650 smartphone spotted on Geekbench
Another dive into an Android benchmarking database has revealed more information on an upcoming Motorola smartphone. Listed as the XT1650, the unannounced device will supposedly carry a Snapdragon 820 SoC with 4 GB RAM, which suggests that it will be a successor to the current Moto X series. This particular series is being sold under the Motorola brand instead of Lenovo who acquired the American company back in 2014.
Whether or not the upcoming Motorola smartphone will carry different names around the world is unknown. The Moto X, for example, is sold under the name Moto X Pure in North America and Moto X Style in Europe. Furthermore, the Moto X Force in Europe launched as the Droid Turbo 2 in the U.S. through exclusive contracts with Verizon Wireless. The smartphone was marketed as having a shatterproof display.
The next Moto X device will almost certainly run Android 6.0 Marshmallow as the Droid Turbo 2 had its software update just recently earlier this month. Motorola may officially announce the next Moto X at an upcoming press event this coming June.
