Moto X Play 2016 specs surface through GFXBench listing
Another day, another leak in the smartphone world and this time around it comes from the popular benchmarking site GFXBench. The Moto X Play 2016 has possibly made an appearance, which means we have the skinny on those specifications.
Whenever a company announces a new product line similar to an old one, fans always wonder if their favorite line is being phased out. When Motorola unveiled the modular Moto Z, many feared a member of the X lineup had seen its last hurrah, but that apparently won’t be the case just yet. A device bearing the model number Motorola XT1662 has gotten benchmarked and appears to be a solid upgrade over last year’s version of the X Play.
According to the listing, the Motorola XT1662 is set to sport a 4.6-inch FHD display… which is a drastic drop from the 5.5-inch panel found on the previous model. The chip running the show is a 2.1Ghz octa-core MediaTek MT6755, and the GPU is listed as an ARM Mali-T860. 3GB of RAM will help keeps things moving along, which is a gig higher than the 2015 edition. Other options listed include 16GB of storage, a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, and Android 6.0.
For now, you’ll want to take the Motorola XT1662 listing with a small dose of salt. The listings can occasionally have errors and the small display and a few other things just don’t sit quite right at the moment. Considering the 2015 edition was announced in July, we should hear something official in the coming weeks ahead.
