New 5.2-inch Motorola XT912A with Android 4.4.3 spotted in benchmark test?

Motorola already confirmed that it would introduce a second-generation Moto X (possibly called Moto X+1) later this year, plus other new smartphones, but it didn’t provide specific details regarding their specs - although we do know that they will offer a near-stock Android experience.

One of the company’s upcoming handsets might be the Motorola XT912A, which was spotted in a GFXBench test today (see the image on the left, and zoom in for a closer look). According to the benchmark test, the XT912A runs the latest Android 4.4.3, and sports a 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. Other features seemingly include a 12MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of ROM, and 32GB of internal memory.

If the XT912A model number looks familiar it’s because the original Motorola Droid Razr (released by Verizon in late 2011) was - and still is - known as the XT912. Is this XT912A a new Verizon-bound handset? We can’t know for now. In any case, we must keep in mind that data revealed by benchmark tests isn’t always accurate, as these things can be easily faked. So the XT912A might end up being... nothing after all. Until some official details arrive (if ever), we have no choice than to remain skeptical about all this.

Should have kept it at 4.7 and made it even more compact than the moto x.

You know they'll lock that bootloader down tighter than your first prom date's legs.

Let's just hope Motorola / Lenovo are not stupid this time & release it quicker in UK & launch the 32gb version & not just the 16gb version.

This will be the next Droid... The follow of the X will be X+1 and entirely different than this one.

But is the camera a camera since most Moto cameras are not cameras.

Looks like a downgrade/no improvement from my Note 3. Man I wanted a Motorola device this year. At least put the snapdragon 801 and 3 gigs of ram in there.

A moto running the 800 w/ 2GB will out-perform a touchwiz Note 3 every day of the week.

When I went from my razr to the HTC One m8 this week I tried out an s3 my razr buried it.

Do you think the 800 is wortless compared to the 801 you should remember that the 800 is the former strongest processor by qulacom he still pack alot of power and can rivel the 801 in power and speed beside putting it in means more affordable price than putting 801 and since it uses near stock android it will run very fast with this

You have to remember the graphics engine (GPU) is the same GPU for the 801 and the 800. They both use the adreno 330. What has changed are clock and bus speeds. Also things like dual channel ddr3 ram is supported in the 801.

Not a downgrade, an opponent from another OEM, another choice if you may. With less fluff on board, she may rival your phone sans fancy stick option. 801 is an over clocked 800, The hot new ones are 805 an 810 later in year. 801 is a filler soc for the time being.

"The hot new ones are 805 an 810 later in year." 810 it is and that's because that'll be proper generational change. 805 will be a lost cause on all current 800 users for obvious reason(s):- They just won't see/really feel that straight to the forehead performance loss especially those already running on near AOSP custom ROMs.

I'm guess that's a Snapdragon 800 plus their additional cores like that of the Moto X, so technically that's really not that bad.

That be pretty kick arse if it had the additional smart cores along side a full quad this time.

Yeah, so they really don't need to go with the latest quad out their, and it still would probably out perform the latest.

I think Moto should stay in the 4.7-inches range for the flagship! They should have some Moto U phablet (or whatever name they want) but don't change Moto X size!

Yeah. People can make 5.5" 1440p display but can't make a 4.3" to 4.5" 1080p displays. We really need someone to make take all the technological advancements and use it to miniaturize our phones.

Good point. We've started seeing QHD displays on a 5.5. Its about time 1080p comes to 4.5 or less. Besides HTC One already achieved that at 4.7 last year. BTW, nice name.

Amen! We want top of the line specs in a smaller package! I have a tablet for when 4.7 is too small and a TV for when the tablet is too small. KEEP PHONES PHONE SIZED!

it's probably a Droid and those specs are what i'm talking about! i wouldn't opt for this though. since i have the Galaxy S5 i'm counting on Motorola to present me with a smaller alternative more like the Moto X from last year which i still love.

Guys, it doesn't have a barometer. We can all go home. Nothing to see here.

Yes, it is. Thank you for pointing it out for all the other people who don't see it as well.

Does Android have a native Altimeter? I know some apps have them.

It doesn't have a native altimeter app, but there are a number of apps on the play store that have an altimeter option. Some are flight apps and are great if you have an ultralight.

I think the author of the article meant to say 2gb of ram instead of ROM. Unless the ROM is for the OS only? Either way Motorola release it soon. Also make moto maker available to people in Canada, or give users the ability to order it and then ship it from the states to Canada. I would pay a little extra for that ability.
