Moto X+1: Forthcoming Smartphone Could Come with Snapdragon 801 CPU

A recent report, as per some benchmarks, claim the Moto X+1 to come stuffed with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The new benchmark reveal the upcoming handset will be powered by a 2.6 GHz quad-core processor, paired with 2GB of RAM. Previously it was reported the Moto X+1 to flaunt an older generation Snapdragon 800 processor.

If the Motorola-made Moto X2 (Moto X+1) gets launched with a Snapdragon 801 processor, we'd see the device matching the likes of Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8), Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro and Sony Xperia Z2.

The Moto X+1, which is yet to be launched, will run the latest Android 4.4 Kitkat mobile OS. It would also sport a 5.2-inch 1080p HD display, alongside a 12MP rear-facing camera. Also add a 5MP front-facing shooter for selfies. The phone is also speculated to arrive with a 2,900mAh battery inside.

The media reports consider the Moto X+1 as one of the rivals of the Galaxy S5. The current generation, the Moto X, comes with a 4.7-inch 720p HD display and an above average processor under the hood.

We expect more about the Moto X+1 as we get closer to IFA. Some expect the new device will be launched alongside the heavily buzzed - Moto 360. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
