Possible Moto M sequel, loaded with deca-core chip, appears on Geekbech

Possible Moto M sequel, loaded with deca-core chip, appears on Geekbech
A phone labeled as the Lenovo XT1902-03 has been discovered on Geekbench. The XT prefix for a model number often indicates a Motorola handset and there is speculation that this device is the sequel to the Moto M. That assumption was reached based on the chipset found on last year's device, and comparing it to the SoC used on the unknown model that is the focus of the benchmark test.

The XT1902-03 features a Helio P20 MediaTek MT6797 chipset carrying a deca-core CPU. For the test, the ten cores were running at a clock speed of 1.85GHz. The device sports 4GB of RAM inside, and Android 7.1.1 is pre-installed. The Moto M contains a Helio P15 MediaTek SoC with an octa-core CPU under the hood.

Motorola recently unveiled the Moto Z2 Play and launched the Moto C, and we expect to see at least one more phone introduced on June 21st. More Moto branded handsets should be announced over the next few weeks. The Moto E4 Plus and its massive 5000mAh battery could greet the light of day on July 17th.

As for the just discovered Geekbench listing, the XT-1902-03 scored 1163 on the single-core test, and 4836 for the multi-core test. That is a vast improvement over the Moto M's Geekbench scores of  741 and 2487 for the single-core and multi-core tests respectively.

Helio P20 does not have 10 cores, even Mediatek's website says "a true octacore processor". It is clearly the X20, even the secondary source says so.

In any case it is a 10 core. However the MT6797 was first benchmarked back in April 2015. So it's old hat now.

Yes, kinda outdated at this point, 20nm and only LPDDR3 support, the P20 sounds like a better option since it's new and turned to be a nice midrange chip, at least on the new Xperias.

Such another worthless SoC, Mediatek when are you gonna stop producing crap like this? A good quad core that goes from 300Mhz (idle mode) to 2.4-2.6Ghz for performance mode is much better than 10 worthless cores.

They do not plan on stopping anytime soon, they plan to announce a 12 core chipset based on 7nm process. Edit, reply to #3, something is wrong with PA replies.

I don't believe they've officially announced that one yet Qualcomm, Samsung, Huawei and even Apple have adopted something like big.LITTLE So we know these clustered CPUs offers better perf/watt and are the future of mobile computing Unfortunately the Helio Series' potential is ruined by MediaTek/OEM's poor firmware
