Back in late April this year, we reported on a mysterious Moto device with the model number “XT1650,” which was believed to be the 2016 iteration of the Moto X. Now, the very same device has been spotted again on a benchmark tool called GFXBench. Based on the listing, the alleged 2016 Moto X will be packing a dual-camera setup and a slew of high-end specifications.
Interestingly, unlike the dual-camera setup of the Huawei P9 (where both cameras are 12MP sensors that work in tandem), the one found on this mysterious Moto device have 21MP and 13MP rear cameras. This is similar to the dual-camera system of the LG G5, which work independently of each other. As for selfies, a 5MP camera takes care of that.
Other specifications of the XT1650 include a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, and supposedly, a microSD card slot. Needless to say, these are very respectable specifications befitting of a flagship device.
Lenovo has previously confirmed that the Moto Z series will not be replacing the Moto X lineup, going as far as to say that the latter “is alive and well.” If the Moto XT1650 is indeed this year’s iteration of the Moto X, it will be interesting to see exactly when Lenovo will officially introduce it.
