The rumors have been getting pretty wild lately about what to expect from the folks at Motorola and Google now that they’ve joined forces. The X-Phone has been a hotly debated device, and we’ve seen a few fake benchmark results appear of the Google X phone too. However, today something a little more realistic sounding has appeared. Read on for our thoughts.
An unknown Motorola device being listed as the XT1055 has surfaced in the popular benchmarking applications AnTuTu. Now these are extremely easy to fake with a simple build.prop edit that any average rooted Android user can do, but this seems somewhat plausible. The Google X running Android 5.0.1 Key Lime Pie was obviously fake, and we’ve even seen a Nexus 4 LTE with Android 4.3 in here too. Again, that’s probably just a fake based off of recent rumors.
Now to get down to why this sounds a bit more realistic and reasonable to us. The DROID RAZR HD was model XT926, and others before it had even lower numbers in the title. We even saw a glimpse of a brand new Motorola design direction with the XT912A back in March. So what could this XT1055 be? The Motorola X-Phone? Maybe.
The leak doesn’t reveal a screen size but the hardware sounds pretty much like what we’d expect from Motorola right about now to follow the RAZR HD. That includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 series quad-core at 1.7 GHz and 2GB of RAM. Just like the HTC One. Running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, this could be a device in testing by Motorola, since Google hasn’t officially released the next version of Android yet.
Google’s own Eric Schmidt recently suggested some good things coming from Motorola soon, and even called them “phenomenal” and “phones plus”, whatever that means. If Motorola drops something similar to the 4.7-inch 1080p HD HTC One with a closer to stock version of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and RAZR MAXX-like battery would you be interested? We’ll see in a few weeks as surely something will be revealed at Google I/O.
