Motorola’s most likely got a new Moto smartphone coming

Motorola’s been launching so many devices this year, we’re having trouble keep up with them all. And now, rumours are circulating of yet another Motorola Moto device, but we’re not complaining.

Leaks have surfaced on a testing site, Geekbench, of a new Moto device in the works – which sources are speculating could either be a refreshed Moto E or an upgraded version of the second generation Moto G.

And the main highlight of the device is that it’s most likely going to feature the Snapdragon MSM8916, more commonly known as the Snapdragon 410 processor.

In addition, it’s said to house a 64-bit quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU that can run up to 1.4GHz. By the looks of the purported specs, the device in test is seems to be one that will fall under the mid-range price spectrum.

Geekbench also revealed that the unofficial unit will sport the Cortex-A53, which will run at 1.19GHz and be backed by 1GB of RAM (reported as 884MB). It also describes that the smartphone’s being tested with Android 4.4.4 KitKat, but might come out of the box with Android 5.0 Lollipop depending on when it’s unveiled.

But apart from this, no other details of the device were revealed on the testing site. We were hoping to catch a glimpse of what specifications might surround its display, battery, and especially its camera.

Considering that a codename is yet to be determined for the device (it’s been only described as a Motorola TBD), it will be a while before the smartphone hits retail. But since the Moto G was most recently unveiled, we think the Moto E will be the name allotted to this unit.
