Motorola Moto X (2016) certified by CCC in China
As we've told you before, the Motorola Moto X is not dead. A handset called the Motorola Moto X (2016) is reportedly coming to China, and a previous GFXBench listing revealed that the model number of the phone will be XT1662. A handset with that model number was recently certified by China's CCC. Also known as the China Compulsory Certificate, all smartphones manufactured and imported into the country must go through the process of obtaining the CCC safety mark.
Thanks to the aforementioned GFXBench test, we expect the Moto X (2016) to feature a 4.6-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The MediaTek Helio P10 MT6755 chipset is under the hood carrying an octa-core CPU, and the Mali-T860 MP2 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 16MP camera is located on back, with a front-facing 8MP selfie shooter on board. Android 6.0 is pre-installed.
Now that the CCC certification has been completed, one less task remains for Motorola to accomplish before the phone is unveiled. We could see that take place some time next month. We don't expect this model to join the Moto lineup outside of Asia.
