The Android 5.0, Key Lime Pie powered Motorola X phone recently showed up in a new smartphone benchmark.
The software actually appeared as Android 5.0.1 and the device was listed as the Google X phone. There is a screenshot which displays the Motorola X Phone sighting.
Neither Google nor Motorola has officially confirmed the existence of the handset, and the device is not expected to see the light of day until the end of the summer or after, according to a recent report from Phone Arena. The site predicts the Motorola X will not launch until August or after. This means the smartphone might not be unveiled until after Google I/O.
A render of the rumored X Phone surfaced on the internet last month, and more specs were also revealed by an anonymous tipster who stated that the X Phone could be IP57 certified, which means it could be submerged in a meter of water for as long as 30 minutes and will still function. It will also have Gorilla Glass protection and no microSD slot.
There have been many rumors regarding the new high-end Motorola smartphone and other specifications for the device surfaced yesterday. The handset will feature a 4.8-inch display made from sapphire glass and a 4,000mAh battery, PhoneArena reported. This information seemed to line up well with an earlier report from Google's CEO Larry Page, who stated that future Motorola smartphones would feature better batteries and impact-resistant designs.
There were also more specifications revealed in the report, including corners being made with rubber bumpers, a carbon fiber back case, and a quad-core 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
Androidworld.nl recently received information on the specifications for the upcoming device. However, the site claimed to have two conflicting sources, and the report did not match up with this recent one by PhoneArena.
