Moto X 2016 Might Exist after All, and Its First Benchmark Is Very Promising

We spent almost the first half of the year receiving rumors and leaks from Lenovo and by associating them with the renewal of the Moto X line, and finally had to retreat before the presentation of a new line, the composed of Z Moto and Moto Z Force, both with the surname “by Lenovo”. Everything did think we would not have a Moto X This year although its manufacturer did not hesitate to deny it.

Now, a month after that, reaching networks a filtered benchmark. Although maybe we should not call filtering an analysis of performance that is recorded on a publicly accessible web. The terminal object of this analysis is the Motorola XT1650 and both their characteristics and other rumors give it a name early. Moto X 2016 which we both hoped it could be.

This would be the future Moto X 2016

The specifications you see on these lines, reflected in a screenshot of Geekbench, correspond to this so-called Moto X 2016 by Lenovo, although by now there are few rumors in lathe to it and it is difficult to ensure emphatically that exists or that is real’s unmistakable form. Characteristics, certainly place him at a great height.

This so-called Moto X 2016 by Lenovo would have a screen of 5.5 inch QHD resolution, 2560 x 1440, thus matching the density to other models on the market as Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge or his own brother, the Moto X by Lenovo, and very similar to the Moto X Force. It would have a Cryo and 4 GB RAM quad-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820.

To the internal memory, Lenovo would have opted for a basic model, and we do not know if only, 32 GB with possibility to expand through a microSD, although this year Lenovo movements make us think that there will be at least another version with 64 GB. Cameras we would have 21 megapixel and 12-megapixel back, with some kind of dual sensor, and 5 megapixel camera to the front, as z-Moto.

The last thing we know of this future phone from Lenovo, the so-called Moto X 2016, is that by now, in its phase of testing, 6.0.1 Android has Marshmallow. We don’t know, having so little information, if finally arrive with 7.0 Android Nougat or would have an update waiting for you. They are data that will unravel later.

The so-called Moto X 2016 front Moto Z

While the first is still a rumor in the air, despite the emergence of the first benchmark that speaks of the existence of a future terminal of Lenovo in the Moto line, the second is a reality and now we will put both on a comparative table. So it will be easier to see what will differentiate one and other.

May to September

The proximity of the IFA in Germany suggests that this future Moto X 2016 by Lenovo may arise there, in Berlin, although Lenovo tends to be of exclusive events held in their own country and would not be surprising to have a presentation in China, Although it coincides with the IFA in date.

We hope that in the next few weeks go having more data on this expected Moto X 2016 by Lenovo, about whether we will have one or two models and, above all, about the dates both presentation and put on sale. Now that Samsung has overtaken again Note to August, as it did with the S6 Edge and Note 5, It’s not unreasonable to see this new bike in August.
