A new Motorola device, presumably the successor to the Moto X, was spotted in benchmark testing. Performance marks aren’t the juicy bits we’re after, here — the hardware specs are. What we find is everything we wished the Moto X was on launch, but it could be a different device altogether.


The screen on this device is a 5.2-inch offering, checing in at 1920 x 1080. The benchmark stats also note it has “at least 5 finger gesture support”. The device also sports a Snapdragon 800, clocked at 2.2GHz. An Adreno 330 rounds out the processing power, here.

The device tested notes 1.7GB ROM and 24GB memory. Those are both very odd numbers, and we’re not quite sure what to make of them just yet. A 12MP camera is set to adorn the rear of the device, and is said to be capable of full HD video.

The XT912A moniker is also causing some confusion. It’s eerily similar to a previous DROID model, and a rumored Motorola X variant. A larger screen tends to tip the cap toward a DROID, as many expect the Moto X form factor to stay the same. Android 4.4.3 powers whatever device is on test here.

Motorola announced both devices in fall of last year, so seeing these kinds of leaked specs at this time of year is nothing out of the ordinary. We’ll be sure to keep an eye on what develops from here, especially if we start seeing pics pop up.

    Oh, I really hope those funny numbers are what I think they could be. Ever since the system/avaliable memory confusion with the Surface tablets, I’ve thought that manufacturers need to market only the avaliable memory. That is to say, the system should have is own partition, and the sticker volume advertised for memory should be ALL user accessible.

    If they’ve got ROM listed separately, maybe that’s what they’re after. 1.7 seems small, but maybe that’s enough. If all the apps are in regular memory, it might work…

    The 1.7 GB is definitely available RAM out of 2 GB and the 24 GB internal storage is likely what is left over from 32 GB after the system uses 8 GB.

    5.2 inch screen? come on the screen on the Moto x was the perfect size
