Moto X+1 should feature Snapdragon 801 processor
The Motorola Moto X 1 specs have been leaked in some new benchmarks, confirming a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor.
Some new Geekbench benchmarks have been leaked online, revealing the specs for the Moto X 1 ahead of its potential launch later this year.
The benchmarks reveal it will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.6GHz with 2GB of RAM.
Previously it was suggested that the Motorola Moto X successor would come with a Snapdragon 800 processor, so it’s pleasing to see the newer CPU listed.
This processor would see the Moto X 1 match up with other flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and Sony Xperia Z2.
It is listed as running Android 4.4.4 KitKat, but knowing Motorola, we expect it will launch with Android L or be updated as soon as possible.
Other rumoured specs for the Moto X 1 include a 5.2-inch 1080p full HD display and decent 2,900mAh battery.
Rumours suggest that the X 1 might be kitted out with an AMOLED panel to improve colour accuracy too.
It is expected to feature a 12-megapixel rear camera, paired with a 5-megapixel front-facing alternative for video calling and the like.
You should get 32GB of internal storage as standard, bolstered by microSD card support.
As for the design, it should be largely in line with the current Moto X body. However, leaked image suggest the successor will feature a pair of front-facing speakers.
Although we’re not sure when the Moto X 1 will launch, some reports suggest it could be released at the same time as the Motorola Moto 360.
The round-faced Android Wear smartwatch is expected to be made available sometime this summer, but Motorola hasn’t yet pinned down an exact release date.
