Moto Z2 found on Geekbench?
When Motorola recently unveiled the Moto Z2 Play, it revealed a 15% lower battery capacity and a lighter and thinner design. A theory started circulating that Motorola made these changes so that it could sell the Moto Z2 Play as a sequel to not only the Moto Z Play, but also the Moto Z. By making the battery smaller and the phone thinner, the speculation had Motorola cutting the number of  devices in the Z line to two from three. This would allow consumers to decide between the high-end Moto Z2 Force and the mid-range Moto Z2 Play, giving them an easier decision than if a third phone was offered.

But as it turns out, this might turn out to be another theory that proves to be incorrect. A phone labeled the Moto Z2 has turned up on the Geekbench benchmarking app, powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset. That includes an octa-core CPU (which was running at 1.9GHz for the benchmark test) and the Adreno 540 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, and Android 7.1.1 is pre-installed.

As for the test scores, the single-core test tallied 1879 while the multi-core score was 6503. That indicates that as expected, the phone is not in the same class as the Samsung Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+, but it actually comes close to the scores put up by the Snapdragon 835 powered HTC U11.

If this benchmark test is legit, we should soon see the high-end Moto Z2 Force and the Moto Z2 introduced in the not too distant future.
