Moto X+1 Benchmarks Appear On GFXBench – To Feature 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 800 (801?)
We've seen quite a lot of news about the Moto X+1 for the past couple of months. July started off with a major Moto X+1 leak which ended up covering almost everything about the flagship smartphone. After that there was word that Motorola's next flagship would be running Android L. And the finally we received word from Motorola itself that the Moto X+1, Moto G2, Moto 360 and what looks to be bluetooth headphones will get a September 4th launch date.
The device codenamed as Moto X+1 (XT1097) confirms several details about the Moto X+1 that we learned about earlier, and add several new options to the mix as well. The core clock of the chip running the Moto X+1 is shown to be 2.5 GHz. Yet it is labeled as a Snapdragon 800. This could be a mistake as the version of the Snapdragon that is capable of achieving 2.5 GHz is the MSM8974-AC, which is the Snapdragon 801. Apart from this, the Moto X+1 is also shown to be equipped with 2 GB RAM, a detail which was revealed in earlier leaks as well.

Other details for the Moto X+1 include 2 GB of RAM on the device and 10 GB of storage. The rear camera on the device has a resolution of 12 MP and is capable of recording video in UHD i.e a resolution of 3840 X 2160. As revealed earlier, the display size on the Moto X+1 is 5.2 inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. All of these specs point out to the fact that the main selling point of the Moto X series has never been performance. The Moto X was loved by many due to the diverse configuration options that it offered. Same seems to be the case on the Moto X+1, although the Snapdragon 801 with 2 GB of RAM do not put the device behind any flagship out there. What Motorola intends to offer with the Moto X+1 we'll find out soon. So stay tuned folks.
