Moto X 2016 may be more powerful than the HTC 10

Moto X Style


Until now little was known about what Motorola had planned for its next flagship, but we might have just got our first real insight into its specs, thanks to a new benchmark.

A GeekBench listing for the 'Motorola XT1650' was spotted by Phandroid, and while it doesn't make any specific mention of this being the Moto X 2016 it seems likely, given the flagship specs on show.

According to the benchmark it has a Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM, which would put the phone in line with the likes of the HTC 10 and LG G5.

Its scores are strong too, recording a multi-core result of 5344, which puts it on par with the G5 (5386) and ahead of the HTC 10 (4962), but behind the Samsung Galaxy S7 (6542).

Still a mystery

The benchmark still leaves us with a lot of unanswered questions about the Moto X 2016, such as what camera it will have, as the only other leaks so far suggest the possibility of a fingerprint scanner and a metal build.

We should know more soon though, as the Moto X Style was announced in July 2015, so we're probably not far off the Moto X 2016's launch. In fact, Motorola is announcing something on June 9, though that something could just be the Moto G4.
