Motorola Moto X (2016) appears on GFXBench with 5.5-inch display, SD-820 chip and dual rear cameras?

When talk first surfaced about a new Motorola Moto Z line for 2016, the first thought by many was that the Moto Z was replacing the Moto X as the manufacturer's new flagship phone. But after the Motorola Moto Z and Motorola Moto Z Force models were officially unveiled, it was Motorola that came out and said that the Moto X was alive and well

Today, we just might have seen the specs of the Motorola Moto X (2016) leaked via GFXBench. First, some background. Back in April, a Geekbench benchmark test of Motorola model XT1650 surfaced, and was quickly rumored to be the Motorola Moto X (2016). That device featured a Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and Android 6.0.1 on board.

The model discovered today on GFXBench shares many of the same specs. It also shares the same XT1650 model number. So based on the latest leak, it appears that the Motorola Moto X (2016) will carry a 5.5-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Under the hood you should find the Snapdragon 820 chipset with a quad-core 2.1GHz CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage.

It appears that a dual camera set up will be found on the Moto X (2016), with both a 21MP and a 16MP rear camera listed on GFXBench. 4K video can be shot with the pair. A 5MP front-facing camera will take selfies and handle video chats, and Android 6.0.1 looks to be pre-installed.

The specs sound familiar, don't they? That's because they match the specs on the Moto Z Force except for one difference, the dual rear cameras on back. Is it possible that the only thing separating the Moto Z and this year's Moto X is the addition of a second camera on the back of the latter? Is it possible that the Moto Z series supports the Moto Mods and the Moto X doesn't?
