Google-owned Motorola has been relatively quiet over the past few months, allowing its rivals to gain traction, while it bides its time and develops new handsets.
Now a benchmark, which appeared on Japanese site Rbmen, appears to reveal that the next Motorola smartphone will be the XT1055.
Equipped with a quad core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, the XT1055 will definitely have the muscle to keep up with its closest competitors.
It will also be running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, although by the time it actually gets to market, there could well be a newer iteration of Google’s operating system onboard.
Ever since Google took over Motorola there has been speculation about what the newly forged relationship between the two companies might achieve, with various sources stating that a device, known only as the X Phone, was being built.
The XT1055 could well be this mysterious handset, although with limited information to go on, it is difficult to work out what other hardware components and features it will offer.
We are just a few weeks away from Google’s IO conference, which is often the venue for big product announcements. Could the Motorola XT1005 be unveiled there?
