This sorta stuff happens all the time. A purported next-gen device shows up in an Antutu benchmark and the whole world goes nuts — you know the drill. So, why are we bringing you guys news of a mysterious Motorola XT1055 that just popped up in yet another unreliable benchmark sporting a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, with results posted from the US? Because… it actually makes a lot of sense.
Yes, it’s easy for anyone to edit a build.prop and spoof their results to show the “Moto Uncanny X-Phone Nerxus Plus+,” but that’s not what we’re seeing here. The Antutu bench discovered by RBMen is showing something a lot more subtle — just a codename that follows Moto’s current naming scheme — and modest specs, to be expected from a high-end, low-cost Nexus-ish device. It goes without saying that it’s nothing solid, but if you were crossing your fingers for Motorola X Phone with a 4K display, 4GB of RAM, penta-core processor and running on Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, you might find yourself disappointed.
