We aren’t sure about what Motorola is cooking up, now that Lenovo purchased it from Google, but we are glad to see that the inventors of the mobile phone are working on new devices.
After Motorola announced their first Android Wear-powered smartwatch, the 360, the rumor mill started talking about Moto X successor (unofficially dubbed Moto X+1) and a new, cheaper-than-Moto G smartphone. Details about a new Motorola smartphone codenamed XT912A have been spotted by Phone Arena in GFXBench.
Even though it was reported that the XT912A might be the rumored Moto X+1 the XT912A it’s most likely a member of the Droid family. Back in 2011 Motorola launched a smartphone codenamed XT912 which was Verizon’s Droid RAZR.
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to check the veracity of the report. Keep in mind that the benchmark listings can be easily faked so we shouldn’t trust them 100%. It’s quite odd though to see Motorola re-use the model number of the Droid RAZR. Anyway if the benchmark listing proves to be the real deal, the Motorola XT912A will most likely be a Droid smartphone, rather than the Moto X+1.
The GBXBench listing also shows that the Motorola X912A sports a 5.2-inch display with full HD (1080 x 1920) resolution. Among the technical specifications listed by the benchmark result you’ll also find a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of native storage, 2 MP user-facing camera, and 12 MP rear-facing camera.
Interestingly enough, the Motorola XT912A is running Android 4.4.3, the new Android iteration that is expected to roll out for the likes of Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and Google Play Edition devices in the next few weeks.
Depending on when the Motorola XT912A will be launched, its hardware rather recommend it as a mid-ranger. Anyway, the Moto X didn’t have high-end specs either, and nor are the current Droids. Anyway, the full HD screen is an upgrade to the 5.0-inch HD screen of the Droid Ultra.
