Rumor: Motorola XT1055 (Google X Phone?) apparently spotted in benchmarks

A new unannounced Motorola handset has been spotted in AnTuTu benchmark results, a new report says.

Like always with such early AnTuTu results that hit the web well before the handset is official, we’ll remind you that nothing is confirmed at this time and we can only speculate on this rumor.

According to rbmen, we’re looking at an U.S.-bound Motorola XT1055, a device that apparently sports a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and scores 18252 in AnTuTu. Other specs and features are not available at this time for this rumored device.

Obviously, the first question that comes to mind is whether we’re looking at the Google X Phone here, although we have no way of answering it at this time. Don’t let that XT1055 model number fool you into believing this must be the X Phone because it has the “X” in there. Motorola happens to have various Android devices part of the XT group, with the Droid Razr HD (XT925/XT926 ), the Droid RAZR M (XT907) or the RAZR I (XT890) being some of the recent ones.

Moreover, a variety of reports have suggested that Motorola may be launching several new Android handsets this year, with several code names being thrown around. Those reports have not been confirmed either.


Interestingly, a previous AnTuTu benchmark showing a score of around 15000 hit the web a few days ago for a device said to be the X Phone and run Android 5.0.1.

Meanwhile, Android 4.3 appeared in the picture as the potential next Android OS version launch (it showed up in our logs as well) instead of Android 5.0.1, and now we see this new Motorola handset supposedly running “just” Android 4.2.2 in this new test result, but also getting a much better score.

Whether this handset is real or not and whether the XT1055 will turn out to be the X Phone or not, what’s clear is that Motorola has a few interesting Android handsets in the works, at least if we are to believe Google execs including Eric Schmidt and Larry Page who seem to be very excited about such future devices. Following various comments provided by Schmidt, Page and other execs, we expect new Motorola handsets to drop out of the race for specs, come in just the “right size”, run a stock version of Android (or a very close-to-stock OS), and offer users a more than decent battery life and increased durability.

With Google I/O just a few weeks away, we’re certainly curious to see whether any new Motorola products will become official at the show.

    Motorola was shut down in India by Google :-( :-( :-(

    Most of these are fake

      It is not.

      • MasterMuffin

        Yes THEY are, 5.0.1 for example :)

  • Nick

    This is the X phone. I know so for a fact.

    • magic source the artical and the rest of us seemed to have missed?

      • Nick

        Nope. Let’s just say I know someone. :)

        • as per the fact that you are posting this on the internet, pics or it didnt happen.

  • Considering I always root my phones and install a custom ROM (which is usually clean of all the crap) if future Motorola phones follow the Razr line and release average specs, then I won’t be interested in it.

    Why they don’t want to offer a high end phone is beyond me. At least have it as an option for us who are interested in max performance.

    As long as the benchmark is beyond 14000, I wont be concerned about the performance. I’m hoping the device will be what they teased. Durable & Beautiful build, large battery, well optimized to the software, and some sweet features that would make life convenient is what I would want.
