New benchmark suggests the Moto X+1 will have the killer specs you’ve been craving

Moto X+1 Specs: Processor and RAM

After an unknown Moto XT1096 handset box was photographed recently, Smart Droid spotted a new version of the same handset in a Geekbench browser benchmark test. The device, which was codenamed the XT1097, seems to sport the kind of high-end specs the Moto X+1 might have to offer.

According to the benchmark test, the XT1097 packs a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat. However, it’s not clear whether the XT1097 is actually the Moto X+1, Motorola’s 2014 flagship device.

A previous leak claimed the Moto X successor will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU and 2GB of RAM while adding that the phone will likely have a 5.2-inch Full HD display, 32GB of storage, microSD support, 12-megapixel camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera and 2,900mAh battery. The benchmark found by the German publication does not reveal any other hardware details.

Given that XT1097 is very close to XT1096, it makes sense to assume these unannounced devices are actually two versions of the same handset – for example, last year’s Moto X has various similar model numbers, from XT1052 for Europe, all the way up to XT1060 for Verizon.

Motorola is expected to unveil several Android handsets this year, including the Moto X+1, new Droids for Verizon, but also a Nexus 6 smartphone for Google, although it’s not clear when they’ll be available to buyers.

An image showing the Geekbench browser benchmark test for the XT1097 follows below.
