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

Moto X+1 benchmark leaks, confirms a 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.
