Motorola X Phone XT1056 for Sprint Pays FCC a Visit, Release Date Might Be Near
It seems that the Motorola X Phone release date is closer than we are expecting, as a Motorola terminal codenamed XT1056 has been spotted in the FCC logs. The Motorola X Phone XT1056 seems to be the Sprint variant of the smartphone co-developed by Google and the US-based phone maker.
Of course, the Google officials didn’t confirmed the existence of the X Phone yet, the AT&T variant also leaked on the web, codenamed XT1058, that also payed the FCC a visit. Moreover, there’s another US carrier that will reportedly have the X Phone in its offer, as a Motorola device codenamed XT1060 has been spotted in Motorola’s documents, and the terminal will reportedly hit Verizon later this year.
The Motorola X Phone TX1056, the model that was recently spotted at FCC is definitely part of the same smartphones tribe. Moreover, the FCC logs are indicating that the X Phone TX1056 is compatible with the LTE bands of the Sprint carrier. Summing up, we will see the X Phone at AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint, and even though no details were found yet, the handset might also hit T-Mobile.
Anyway, another Motorola X Phone XT1055 variant has been caught in some benchmark tests, which will probably be another variant of the upcoming smartphone. Is the XT1055 the T-Mobile model?
The FCC documentation for the XT1056 doesn’t reveal any other details about the X Phone, thus we can’t know for sure what are the technical specifications of the terminal that was labeled as “a game changer.”
The rumor mill speculates that the Motorola X Phone will come with a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display with HD resolution and that will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz. If the rumors are accurate and the terminal will indeed sport a Snapdragon 600 SoC, the we should also expect an Adreno 320 GPU and 2 GB of RAM.
Since Larry Page himself said that one the biggest problems of the modern smartphones is their battery life and because the X Phone will be co-developed with Google we should expect the new handset to provide a decent autonomy. Moreover, it was reported that the terminal will be shatter proof, too, so don’t expect it to be very thin.
The gossip has it that the X Phone release date has been set for this fall, and in case Google changes its mind and launched Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the new Motorola flagship might run it out of the box.
