Until now, we have had a lot of reports about the Motorola X Phone that seemed to contradict one another. Some said that the X Phone will allow the customers to customize its hardware, others suggested that it will be rather a mid-ranger with not such a powerful processor whatsoever, while other rumors claimed that it will be available in I don’t know how many colors. It can be very frustrating and confusing as well, especially because we don’t even know for sure if the device is in development or not. However, the rumors keep and coming and we can’t just ignore them, can we?
A couple of days ago, the Motorola XT1058 was spotted in the FCC logs, and the report suggested that the handset was in fact the AT&T variant of the Motorola Ghost, also known as the Google X Phone. A new benchmark has appeared on the web, this time allegedly made by GFX Benchmark, which features the Motorola XT1058.
The previous report claimed that the X Phone is far from being a high-end smartphone and that it will be sporting a rather poor 1.7 GHz CPU. We naturally can’t know for sure, but we expect that the CPU to be either the Snapdragon S4 Pro or the Snapdragon 600. Further, the display of the X Phone will not be that great either, as according to the GFX data, it will not be full HD, but it will have a pixel resolution of 1196 x 720.
Of course, with these specs in mind we can’t say that the Motorola X Phone will be a bad device, but will not be one of the top either. Usually, when Motorola launches smartphones with modest specs, the manufacturer equips it with a very goo battery. Maybe it will be the case with the X Phone as well.
So, the X Phone seems like just another average phone. However, things are about to get interesting as the GFX graphics tests are pretty mind-blowing. In the first performed test called “GFXBench 2.7 T-Rex HD C24Z16” the device managed to achieve 1485 frames (26.5 Fps), which is really great if we compared with the HTC One which achieved 853 (15.2 Fps) and the Galaxy S4′s 704 frames (12.6Fps).
The second test is called “GFXBench 2.5 Egypt HD C24Z16, in which the Motorola X Phone managed to achieve 6078 frames (53.8 Fps). Again, way better than the HTC with 853 frames (15.2 Fps) and he Galaxy S4 with 4572 Frames (40.5 Fps).
There are two possibilities here. The first one is that the tests are fake and they have nothing to do with reality, while the second one is that the X Phone is more that a mod-range device, at least when it comes to graphics. The Google X Phone might actually be powered by the Snapdragon 800 CPU, but this is just a supposition.
Actually, there is nothing official about the news and the X Phone is still yet to be confirmed by the company.
