Moto X+1 benchmark pass reveals 5.2'' display, Snapdragon 800 processor

Moto X+1 benchmark pass reveals 5.2'' display, Snapdragon 800 processor
Rumors and leaks related to the Motorola Moto X have been fairly abundant, but it's been hard so far to piece together a more thorough expectation of the type of hardware that will be packed into the next Motorola flagship. A device with model number XT1097, believed to be the Moto X+1, made an appearance on Geekbench recently, and put the doubts that the Moto X+1 will stick to an older, Snapdragon 800 processor to bed. As it turns out, however, there's still some mystery left over.

According to GFXBench's database of devices that have passed its tests, the XT1097 will indeed come with a Snapdragon 800 chip. That said, the cores' clock speed of 2.5GHz indicates that this is actually the Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974-AC) -- the same chip packed into the Galaxy S5. Perhaps this is an unresolved issue on GFXBench's side, and their system doesn't yet understand the subtle differences between the two.

Anyways, moving on, the benchmark pass indicates a 5.2-inch, 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution screen, which would constitute a significant increase from the Moto X's 4.7-inch glass. Interestingly enough, the device currently known as the Motorola Shamu, believed to be the Nexus 6, will also come with a 5.2-inch screen, but a higher, Quad HD (1440 x 2560) resolution. Perhaps Motorola really has been tasked with producing the next Nexus phone? Time will tell.

The rest of the scoop includes a 12-megapixel rear camera (could be 13MP, as GFXBench has been known to mistake these) with support for 4K UHD video capture. At the front, there appears to be a 2-megapixel selfie snapper. Lastly, the device comes loaded with 2 gigs of RAM, and runs on the very latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat update.

Quite frankly, all of these do sound plausible, at least in a world where the Moto X is any benchmark -- after all, Motorola went easy on the hardware with the X, too. Thankfully, we're getting closer and closer to an actual announcement, so it won't be long until we're sure.

I'm just worried about cost at this point. I'm willing to spend $450 on it because I'm planning to buy Motorola's 2-year insurance ($99), and there will probably be a shipping cost (I asked Motorola is the shipping always free or is it promotion, one of the reps said it's promotion now for the Moto X),and of course there will be taxes. That'll end me at $600. Unless I can purchased insurance later, but I'm set on Motorola's insurance.

Sounds like it'll still be a great update from the original X.

When I have the money I'll have to make a choice: lower specced Moto Algebra with all of the Motorola software, or higher specced Motorola Nexus 6 without.

I'm leaning toward the Algebra, but it sounds like I really can't go wrong either way.

I'm in the same boat. Back to topic, I think this is more of a Droid maxx successor, What say?

I think one of the big selling points of the original X was the smaller size. Otherwise there are plenty of choices in smart phones in the 5"+ range. Unless they pull a Galaxy S4 and put a 5" screen in a case the same size as the original X. But considering the minimal bezel on the X, I don't know if that's possible.

There was no selling point of Moto X. The sales were heartbreaking even though the phone ran great and had everything and more, now increasing the size may help them seeing that they will be between the huge note 4 and smaller iPhone. If the phone is designed well with a curved back and thickness of the sides kept to a minimum it will be good enough for one handed operation. And well they cant put that big a screen on something as compact as the X. Personally I wanted a 5" X+1 and a 4.7" G2. Time will tell. I hope Motorola establishes itself once again cause well their designs were always revolutionary and their engineering is top-notch.

There can be a selling point of something, without huge sales. A selling point is some part or feature of a product that may entice someone to buy it. The phone running great and having everything on it (as you say) would also be selling points. But many of the people who had it and liked it mentioned the size and feel in the hand as being a selling point.

Personally 5.2" is out of my spectrum for phones. Sure it's large and great for media consumption, which I do a lot of, but it almost feels uncomfortable and awkward to use a phone with two hands for me. The HTC One M7 was very comfortable for me and I could reach all corners pretty well without having to do a lot of hand gymnastics. As much as I love these larger screen phones, not everyone enjoys having to use two hands pretty often to accomplish tasks. That's just me though, there's many people out there who love 5.5 inch screens. I just wish there were better Android phones with smaller screens, since most smaller screen Android phones give up specs and resolution.

Motorola incorporates last year's technology into their Motorola X flagship devices it seems, as a method for cutting production costs down.

The main thing with Motorola is what they're able to do with "last year's tech". The Motorolas run almost lagless due to their optimization and minimal UI. If they could put a better camera in it it would be almost perfect for me. The current camera is OK, but seems very environment dependent and nothing spectacular. If they'd only give the user more control over things like white balance and ISO, I think that'd help.

They are within 6 months of the first release of the S800, but alas we must scream that this isn't a flagship because they are using last year's technology...

^ (to those above)
Thanks for clearing that up..

Now can we stop with the "the 930 is not a flagship or a worthy 920 upgrade because it doesnt have the latest 801/805" BS

I didn't realize that anyone cared enough about Windows Phone to pay attention to the specs in its flagships.

There's also a lot of ridiculously rabid MS fanboys around these days, despite the fact that Windows Phone has had almost as much time as Android to grow and...hasn't, really. In fact, it declined in Q2 of this year compared to last year. That's not good for an OS with a miniscule marketshare to begin with.

801 is just an overclocked 800, so fail for 801, but it would be great if they added an 805.

But the extra 100ghz helps the gpu to play more complex games and push more pixels.

Everything is top notch here except the 5.2" display. They didn't keep 4.7 and moved to 5, I was like "wtf, okay we'll see", Now thats freakin' staggering 5.2" display, that's way too far and beyond ergonomics meter, no matter how much they trim the bezels.
I hope this turns out DROID MAXX successor instead.

I dunno man. The Galaxy S4 was fine with a 5 inch display, and that had to leave space at the bottom for physical buttons. I think the 5.2 incher will be fine. I would suggest at least reserving judgement until we see the phone in the flesh.

Wait, the Xperia Z2/LG G2 were not mocked for their 5.2 inch displays, yet the Moto Shamu and the X+1 were said "Why have a 5.2 inch display?" we'll see if it will be like the G3 like it had a 5.5 inch display in a 5 inch body.

So... The rumors that the new Motorola flagship will have processor X have been "put to bed" by the fact that it will indeed have said processor? Do you even know what "put to bed" means in this context? Appalling.
