Motorola's next major smartphone may be lot faster than Moto X

Motorola's next major smartphone will represent a serious upgrade from the Moto X in terms of hardware, according to a recent leak.

Tech blog PhoneArena spotted some alleged test results for a phone that's believed to be the Moto X+1, which would tell us exactly what's inside Motorola's Moto X successor.

Based on the results, the Moto X+1 is believed to run on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. This is the same chip found in several of today's high-end smartphones such as the HTC One M8 and LG G3.

More cores in a processor essentially means better multitasking — the more cores a phone has, the more tasks it can handle at a single time. The number of cores doesn't really impact the technical clock speed of a phone, but since it enables a phone to take on more tasks, it can make the overall experience feel smoother.

What's more, the Moto X+1 is expected to feature a full HD 1080p 5.2-inch display, a 12-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front camera, with 32GB of storage space.

This suggests the Moto X+1 will be marketed as a true competitor to other flagship Android phones on the market.

The Moto X, compartively, ran on a chip that was already a couple of generations old that only had two cores. It also had a display that was smaller (4.7 inches) and had a lower resolution display (720p) than most other phones at the time.

The Moto X's flagship feature was its Touchless Voice Controls — i.e. its always-listening capabilities that enabled you to ask Google Now a question without even turning the phone's display on. It also came with a chip made by Motorola dedicated to processing your natural language, which means it was able to understand your words a little better than Siri and Google Now on other Android phones.

Based on leaks we've seen, it doesn't seem like the Moto X+1 will have this natural language processor. Instead, it looks like Motorola is upping its hardware quality to take on devices like the Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8.
