We've not heard a lot from Motorola shortly with regards to a brand new flagship software, and it kind of feels in lots of ways in which new proprietor Lenovo is operating a extra secretive display than we are used to, however now the Moto X 2016 version has been noticed in benchmark tool wearing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4GB of RAM. Previous statements from Lenovo stated that the company shall be "phasing out" the Motorola branding however the "Moto" logo will survive for premium-grade units. We have now additionally noticed a variety of proof of a few mid-range fashions within the type of 2016 editions of the Moto G and a brand new Moto G Plus could also be rumoured.

In the Geekbench database, picked up through Mobipicker, the Motorola XT1650 (feels like a killer robotic from the Terminator films) chalked up a single-core rating of 2,309 and a multi-core rating of 5,344 with its Qualcomm hardware. That is in fact the similar chipset within the LG G5, HTC 10, and a few editions of the Samsung Galaxy S7 collection (even though most effective those bought in Asia), and the scoring is in a equivalent ballpark. In addition to the Snapdragon 820 and 4GB of RAM there is additionally Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow onboard. The telephone is not published because the Moto X 2016, however that is flagship calibre stuff and until Lenovo is enticing in some unexpected re-branding workout it kind of feels not likely it may well be anything.

A Lenovo tournament has been scheduled for June 9, which might see the handset release along a brand new Moto G and different Lenovo units. Will the Moto X stay the "Taste" and "Natural" branding editions we noticed ultimate yr? Frankly we are hoping now not, as diluting the logo did not appear to do it any favours; we actually hope Motorola will get a chance to hone in on making one constant and in point of fact stellar flagship this yr.
