For the past few months, Motorola’s X phone has been the thing of rumors and speculation, but right at the start of May we finally started tying some physical evidence to the talk, upon the discovery of some photos that just might reveal the X phone in the flesh. Today we get what could be a new look at the hardware thanks to the FCC, as well as get to look at some possible X phone benchmarks.
The FCC just published the paperwork for Motorola’s model XT1058. That line rendering of it up above sure does tend to match the imagery we’ve seen of the X phone, from the camera and flash positions, to the centered headphone jack, to that curved design up along top. The hardware shows support for AT&T bands, which would fit with the “XFON ATT” label we saw attached to this month’s imagery.
Armed with that model number we could check out some benchmark results, but the info is a little confusing. The XT1058 appears to have only a 720p resolution and run an older Snapdragon S4, yet some of its graphics performance is far beyond what should be possible for that hardware. Either something’s screwy with this benchmark data, or the phone’s been misreporting its own silicon in an effort to hide its true capabilities.
