Motorola is working on new editions of its Moto X, Moto G and Moto E smartphones. The specifications of a prototype variant of Moto X (2016) aka Moto X3 have surfaced on GeekBench benchmarking platform.
According to Mobi Picker, a new Motorola flagship device has passed the GeekBench benchmark test. The smartphone carries a codename of “Sheridan” and has a model number of Motorola MT1650.
The listing of MT1650 on GeekBench has revealed that it will be powered by Snapdragon 820 that features a quad-core processor and Adreno 530 graphics along with 4 GB of RAM. It features Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS.
The Moto X (2016) is expected to arrive in two storage editions of 32 GB and 64 GB. The smartphone has scored 2,309 and 5,344, respectively, on single-core and multi-core GeekBench benchmark test.
The Moto X (2016) was recently found listed with “Moto X3” moniker on Zauba, an Indian website that keeps track of imports and exports to and from India. Since the website has a consistent record of revealing actual names of the unreleased devices, it is likely that the Moto X (2016) may launch as Moto X3.
The Moto X3 is heavily pegged to sport a metal unibody design. Speculations indicate that it will be coming with an improved camera that will be coupled with a dual-tone flash.
The Android N OS will be unveiled at the Google I/O 2016 event in May and its final build is expected to be public by July. Since Moto X3 won’t be arriving with Android N OS, Motorola is likely to make the latest Android version soon available for its flagship smartphone users.
Rumors suggest that Motorola Moto X (2016) release date is June 9. The company is also expected to announce the Moto G4 on the same date. The rumor mill has also revealed the purported specs of Moto E which indicates that it may also get unveiled on June 9.
