The Moto X+1 seems to have been all but confirmed, having been subjected to a fair amount of rumors as well as possible sightings in the past, but despite all of those alleged rumors, specifics on the hardware remain difficult to track down. Thankfully, there is always room for “improvement” in this area, if you were able to call it so, with one of the more recent leaks pointing to several hardware qualities of the upcoming Moto X+1. For starters, a device with model number XT1097 (which incidentally, has been associated with the Moto X+1) appeared over on Geekbench not too long ago, revealing a Snapdragon 800 processor.
This might come across as a surprise, considering Snapdragon 800 is not exactly the newest chip on the block. Having said that, the cores’ do feature a clock speed of 2.5GHz which points to it being the Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974-AC), which is pretty much what you can find when you pry open the Samsung Galaxy S5. Maybe this discrepancy could be attributed to GFXBench’s system that has yet to figure out a way to tell the difference between the two.
Other than that, the benchmark results do point to a 5.2” display at 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, which would certainly be a vast improvement over the 4.7” display that is found on its predecessor. That will be accompanied by a 12MP camera at the back, although one should not also rule out the possibility of a 13MP camera instead, a 2MP front-facing shooter, 2GB RAM and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
