Suspected to be the next Moto X, the smartphone enters India for testing. It's expected to feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 SoC and a QHD AMOLED display.

Motorola's Moto X series could use an update: its most advanced smartphone, the Moto X2, is gradually becoming obsolete with a now-outdated Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC. It appears that Motorola is already working on a new Moto X: the famous Indian import tracker Zauba has listed a few samples of a smartphone named "Motorola Calisto" brought in from Canada. Each of them is valued at INR 29,775 ($465), which places the upcoming smartphone in at least the upper mid-range category. It is unlikely that Motorola would introduce a new model in this price bracket.

Though the listing has not included any details about the phone's size or specifications, recently leaked screenshots have identified most of the components instead. According to them, Moto X3 will have a 5.2-inch display with a QHD (2560x1440 pixels) AMOLED panel. Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 coupled with 4 GB of RAM will be responsible for performance and a 3280 mAh battery will power the smartphone. A 16 MP camera will be installed in the back and a 5 MP one will be found in the front. Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) should be installed out of the box.

Currently, Motorola has not yet named a release date. However, an official announcement is expected at some point during this summer.
