GFXBench reveals more details about the low-cost Motorola XT1032 (Moto G?)

A Motorola device, carrying a modelnumber XT1032, has been spotted over at GFXBench's corner of the web,giving us a bit more information on what's likely the last pipelineMotorola device for the year. We'veheard of the XT1032 once before, though it has largely remained shroudedin mystery until now.

The specs of the device areadmittedly low mid-range, including a 720p panel with on-screennavigation buttons and a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8226(S4) with Adreno 305 graphics. Furthermore, it's nice to see that thetested unit ran on top of Android 4.4 KitKat, meaning that even though the XT1032 is not as low-powered as some other devices, it may live up toGoogle'spromise of spreading the KitKat joy over the entire spectrum.

Rightabout now would be a good time to specifically note that the XT1032could very well end up as the upcoming Moto G, considering thematch between the recently leaked specs. While on the topic ofspeculation, it's also necessary to mention that no fingerprintsensor is coming with the XT1032, as has been widely reported aroundthe web – it's nothing but a simple case of misunderstanding theGFXBench listings. Not that it makes sense to install one on alower-end device, anyway.

Fascinating. I wonder, if the Moto G truly does use the same touchless controls that the Moto X has, whether the battery life will be similar. Or maybe their main selling point will be the swappable backs.

I'm waiting for someone to comment that this phone must beat the Moto X because it's a quad core. It makes more sense now being that it's an 8226/305 (Snapdragon 400).

maybe in terms of cpu only the moto x uses a 320 adreno gpu which is better than 305 even though a dual core snapdragon s4 plus should handle stock android with out any lag

I doubt it even beats the Moto X in CPU power. It might be quad core, but it's using Cortex A7, which has much less per core performance than Krait 300 used in the Moto X. I'm not sure if the 2 added cores can make up for the higher frequency and naturally higher performance of Krait 300.

How does this compare to my year old Galaxy s3? (International version) Want a new toy and selling my s3 would cover the price of this :-D

Considering that KitKat is coming soon and will most likely end up on this device at some point soon (maybe at launch), it should run quite well and would be an improvement over the S3.
