Moto X+1 benchmark leaks, confirms a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor

Moto X+1 benchmark leaks, confirms a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor
Moto X+1 is expected to be announced soon, together with the Moto 360 smartwatch, judging from the bunch of leaks pouring for both devices lately. This latest one depicts the Moto X+1 handset, codenamed as Motorola XT1097, being benchmarked on Geekbench, showing results consistent with a processor of the latest Snapdragon family.

The Geekbench database reads the processor as MSM8974, which lead previous leakers to the deduction that Moto X+1 might sport a Snapdragon 800 chipset. The clock speed of 2.46 GHz that is shown now, however, indicates that Motorola's new flagship will be powered by the fastest Snapdragon 801, the MSM8974-AC that is in the Galaxy S5, for instance.

The rest of the claimed specs are a 5.2" 1080p display, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage plus a microSD slot. A 12 MP rear, and a generous 5 MP front camera round up the offering, while everything should be backed up by a decent 2900 mAh battery capacity. All in all, it sounds like a great update to the unique always-on Moto X, which will bring Motorola's portfolio in sync with the times in terms of specs, so we can't wait for the flagship to be unveiled next to another drool-worthy gear - the Android Wear poster kid, also known as the Moto 360 smartwatch.

805 is not much better than 801.

The major difference is the GPU. Also the dual channel ddr3 ram support.

If you're using a SD800 Device, better jump straight to SD810.

It would be nice, but the 810 is not out yet. We would all love a 64bit 810 CPU in our phones. The only one from Qualcomm that will be out soon that supports 64bit is the 410 and its a cortex-A53 and not a cortex-A57

A little old, definitely not slow.
It will be fine.

My moto X has a custom S4 pro and beats the s**t out of S5 in terms of lag and smoothness, its all about optimization and the fact that moto doesnt use a custom skin like most of other OEM do. Lesson No. 55.342

Honestly anyone saying that the 801 processor is slow shouldn't be allowed to reproduce... While I love the idea of more power you have to stop for a minute and think "why"... There are no apps/games that truly use the power we have now let alone the 805. If they can wrap this up with that sweet bamboo back in a pretty affordable package I think this will be a hit. This is the area that I've been critical of moto in the past is with the midrange specs but this will fly I'm betting.

Your absolutely right, not to mention the battery saving life of the 801 over the 805.

Now it makes absolute sense to avoid the 801/805 all together if you're coming from a Snapdragon800 device.

thank you Qualcomm for saving me a lot of money!

Yes cause a phones cpu is all it matters, when Moto X came out it had custom S4 which was a year old cpu compared to the 600/800 of that years flagships and it had 10 times less lag than galaxy S4.

800, 801 , 805 are more than enough but the true upgrade will be Android L and 64 bit processor. So I will wait untill smartphones with those specs arrive. Untill then my Note 3 has everything I need.

Seems to me there is a shortage of snapdragon 805 SoC-s,think about it,galaxy s5 prime is the only phone with S 805.Whyyy???
You ask why Snapdragon 805,i say futureproofing especially now when 64bit SoC are around the corner.

Yea Qualcomm have disappointed this year
The 810 should be in these Q3/4 phones

Hopefully rumors of the next Nexus tablet with the 64bit Nvidia Tegra K1 are true

I would like to contest that screen size. Why can' they just leave it at 4.7 or give it a modest jump to 4.8/4.9. 5.2 isn't needed really.

I agree. Moto X is perfect size for me. I don't understand why Motorola has to follow this illogical size race.

LOL all these benchmarking trolls in here bragging about processor speed. Go ahead, navigate around and pull your status down and navigate your apps in your S5 and G3 and that lag is still there, even with those high end processors. I love my G3, but I can't deny that it lags even with its beefed up specs because the OS is not optimized properly and smoothed out.

Considering how well the Moto X holds up with a processor that snobs considered underpowered last year, I think that it's safe to categorize anyone whining about the processor choice in the Moto Algebra as a "blithering idiot."

Motorola has always been at the forefront in the Android space, even though they haven't been very successful. Their Motorola DROID smartphone kicked off Android's dominance with its awesome design and keyboard, and the Moto 360 will make Android Wear more appealing to consumers with its circular watch dial. Keep it up Motorola!

A lot of complainers on here. It's like kindergarten on this website's comment section anymore. The difference between the 800, 801 and 805 is negligible. For example, my Nexus 5 still runs more smoothly than any other Android phone since.

I have a phone that has a 2 years old CPU and performs better than galaxy S5 with its brand new 801. Its all about android skins and optimization.

only a real android fan would say that the 801 isnt good enough

cpu matters jack squat... it is all about optimization

if i were to choose between a laggy 810 device and a smooth 400 device guess which one i choose

The bezel is way too thick, this is big let down compare with current version.

Not up to date processor. This never be good as this means they give you more cheaper price thing but selling same expensive as others that bundle with much better spec.

The current Moto X runs just as smooth as the Galaxy s5. The Moto "Algebra" is going to blow the s5 out of the water due to optimization. And the touchless controls/active listening is better than any new feature on the s5. Also, the current Moto X has very small bezels, If you don't like the image being posted on this site of the X+1, take into account that's it's most likely an unfinished product and not in its final form factor. Wait and see the final product before you say anything about the looks of the product.
