Motorola new Moto X smartphone to use Snapdragon 810  Reuters

Motorola's next-gen Moto X flagship model will use Snapdragon 810 instead of Snapdragon 808, as reported earlier.

GSMArena has released a couple of screenshots containing the hardware details of the new Moto X handset -- Moto X (3rd Gen) or Moto X 2015 bearing model number XT1542. The screenshot suggests a 5.2in screen with Quad HD resolution.

Other features such as Android version 5.1.1, 4GB RAM, 3280mAh battery, 16 megapixel rear camera and five megapixel selfie front camera match the previously leaked details.

However, noteworthy among them is the MSM8994 chip, which is Snapdragon 810, replacing the 808 chip. The duo support 64-bit computing, but the former is an octa-core processor with quad-core ARM Cortex A57 and quad-core A53, whereas the latter consists of six cores having dual-core ARM cortex-A57 and quad-core A53.

However, the Snapdragon 808 is still a beast of a processor, which LG has used for the G4 smartphone, but it would be still interesting to see the performance bump with more cores in the new Moto X.

As confirmed by Motorola president, Rick Osterloh, the handset would be available in line with its other Moto X series, as the company maintains an annual cycle for its products including flagship range devices.
