Motorola XT1058 blows away the competition with two graphics tests on a benchmark site

0. phoneArena 13 May 2013, 15:07 posted on

The unannounced Motorola XT1058 appears to be a version of the Motorola Ghost for AT&T, this is the English translation of the 'Obake' code name that showed up on the AnTuTu benchmark site. In other words, this is the eagerly awaited Motorola X phone that has been a major topic of discussion this year. During the weekend, we told you that benchmark tests revealed that the Motorola X would not be a top of the line model...

I agree. 1080p flagships have become the standard in 2013 moving forwards.

Reminds me of the fiasco with the Bionic.

Your memory is kinda fuzzy then. This phone has yet to be officially or even half officially announced. The Bionic was announced right with or after the Atrix. Then it went thru a major over haul.

Then again, you are right. It might remind you and others of what happened with the Bionic. Being reminded of and being exactly like are 2 different things.

I see no concrete difference here. The situations are the same. The X phone was announced but it's stuck in limbo.

The X phone is NOTHING like the Bionic at this point. The Bionic was announced in January of 2011, with full specs listed, official pictures from Motorola, official name, and even hands on footage with the press at the event. Then, within the course of 8 months; the Etna was scrapped due to its terrible battery life, completely rebuilt into the Targa, and then in September of 2011 was released on Verizon as an entirely new device that looked and operated completely different from the Etna.

Now, the X phone hasn't had any event for it, no official specs, no official pictures, no official name, no official ANYTHING. All Google and Motorola said is that they were working on it. It was never unveiled like the Bionic was, Google and Motorola made it VERY clear that the X phone had STARTED development in late December of 2012; and now, 6 months of development later, they are getting ready for an unveiling.

Now, once the X phone has official pictures, an official name, and is officially unveiled by Motorola and Google with demo units to give out to the press, then you can start spouting off about how this is going to be like the Bionic. When the phone is delayed for 8 months after the official reveal, I will be happy to agree with you. Until then, hush.

I loved the design of the original bionic it was beautiful but I think it was more than just battery issues that had to make it change

Mxyzptlk, you're not an analyst, you're not working with Motorola or Google, so don't act like an expert.

And I guess you're not using an iPhone, you're using a Bionic right?

Every time when there is an X Phone article, you always post BIONIC BIONIC BIONIC comments!

i never loved the Bionic and i'm a Motorola fan boy that had a Bionic. it impressed the hell out of me to begin with though being that it was the first phone powerful enough to really be able to put that blazing fast 4G LTE to any good use.

In your attempt to compare the Bionic to the X/Ghost/XFON, you're forgetting a tiny, little insignificant detail:


If you make this claim one more time before it's ACTUALLY announced, I WILL report you for trolling, as you now have no excuse to be wrong again.

Then every Apple phone is in the same situation as well. Rumors usually start within weeks of the new model's launch. Then we keep hearing rumors moving the date closer/later/closer again/etc until it comes out around a year later.

The previous poster is right. The Bionic was announced with the Thunderbolt, Charge, & Revolution in January 2011. The release date was originally set for May/June, but problems with the Tegra chip & LTE arose, which pushed it backed and finally resulted in a rushed redesign. They couldn't simply drop the Bionic because Verizon had ordered it, along with the Razr. The first gen LTE phones (Bionic,TB, Charge, & Rev) were all supposed to launch the first half of 2011, & the 2nd gen (Razr, Rezound, GNex, & Revolution2) in the second half. Moto couldn't simply drop the Bionic, they owed them a phone. But the main difference between the Bionic & the X phone is that the Bionic was announced and given a launch date, the X phone has no concrete details, only rumor and speculation, just like any other phone before it's announced.

If anything, anyone who went with the Bionic deserved what they got. When Moto announced early summer of 2011 that they were completely redesigning the phone, that should've been a red flag. No phone goes from concept to launch in 3 months and not have MAJOR issues. Why do you think most of the phones launched take about a year to get to that point? Honestly common sense is in such short supply these days it might as well be a super power.

Snapdragon 800 or Tegra 4.

Tegra 4 is for tablets
Tegra 4i is too weak to compete against the snapdragon 800

It could even be Snapdragon 600...the yield must be because of the lower resolution.
Cause the Snapdragon S4 pro on a 720p device with Adreno 320 almost comes close to the S4 and the One.

The S4 and one have the same gpu as the phoens getting close to them.

25. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 4249; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)

Yes, it is. But what i'm saying is, the processor on this Moto phone can also be the 600 instead of the 800, if the readings given up there are true. If it was the 800, it will like double, if not triple the frame rate, provided the resolution be 720p.
