Is this the Motorola Moto X (2016) revealing its specs on GFXBench?

Last week, when Motorola unveiled the new Motorola Moto Z series, a statement attributed to the manufacturer hinted that the Motorola Moto X range is still alive and was not killed off by the new high-end Moto Z models. However, if a handset with the Motorola model number XT1662 proves to be the Moto X (2016), the latest version of the phone will be completely different than its predecessors.

According to a GFXBench test, the Motorola XT1662 will feature a 4.6-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. We have to consider the possibility that this is a mistakeThe MediaTek MT6755 chipset is under the hood carrying an octa-core 2.1GHZ CPU, and the Mali-T860 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. A 16MP snapper is found on the back, with a front-facing 8MP camera for selfies and video chats. Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

Now obviously these specs are far removed from last year's Moto X series which included screens in the range of 5.5-inches to 5.7-inches. Outside of one model, the displays on those handsets had a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution, and all of them were powered by a Snapdragon chipset.

If the Moto X is not dead, as Motorola claims, it has apparently been transitioned into a smaller device with less imposing specs. Hopefully, we will hear more about the Motorola XT1662 soon. As soon as we do, we will pass the information on to you.
