Ever since the Moto Z handsets were announced, many had wondered if they would be replacing the Moto X lineup. Motorola has reassured us that they won’t, but given the lack of any Moto X announcements, we have to say that we are a tad skeptical. However it looks like some evidence has surfaced to suggest otherwise.
According to a recent sighting on GFXBench, a certain Motorola XT1650 has made an appearance. It has been largely speculated that this could be the 2016 Moto X, and if it is true, it seems that it could be giving the Moto Z lineup a run for its money, which is odd since why would Motorola/Lenovo creating competing devices?
That being said, the specs according to GFXBench reveal a 5.5-inch QHD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset. It also appears to be packing 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and interestingly enough what seems to be a dual camera setup. The benchmark reveals two sensors: a 12MP sensor and a 20MP sensor.
We’re not sure if this was an error or if Lenovo really has a dual camera handset in the works. The front shooter appears to be of the 5MP variety which is nothing to shout about. That being said, benchmarks can be faked so take it with a grain of salt for now, but if it’s true, the 2016 Moto X could prove to be a rather interesting handset.
