The much-rumored Motorola X Phone or Google X popped up in the AnTuTu Benchmark database, which suggests it should hit the market soon. The new benchmark appearance still doesn't provide irrefutable proof that it's real, so take it with a grain of salt.
So far, all details regarding the purported Motorola X Phone/ Google X are still in the rumor stage and the device has made no physical appearance yet. Google and Motorola have yet to comment on the rumors of such a handset, and they will likely keep things under wraps until the actual launch of the device.
This alleged benchmark result is yet another detail related to the X Phone. According to GSM Insider (via Japanese blog Rbmen), a device called "Google X" popped up on the AnTuTu Benchmark result. The name itself does sound very similar to the much-rumored Motorola X Phone. Although reports dubbed it this way, Motorola X Phone is not the official name, which means the handset could ultimately bear the name of Google X Phone instead of Motorola X Phone.
The AnTuTu Benchmark result reveals that the mysterious "Google X" handset was undergoing tests in the U.S., the homeland of both Google and Motorola. According to the benchmark, the Google X device packs a processor clocked at up to 1.5GHz. The processor could be Snapdragon 600, Snapdragon 800 or Tegra 4 — it remains a mystery for now.
The most intriguing part of the AnTuTu Benchmark result is the Android version listed for the Google X. The elusive Google X device apparently runs on the upcoming Android 5.0.1, codenamed Key Lime Pie. If the Google X device proves to be real, the smartphone and the Android 5.0.1 Key Lime Pie software could be in BETA stage. The benchmark also mentions a score of 15,479, which doesn't exactly scream flagship or high-end. On the other hand, reports so far suggest the focus would be on the camera, not on top-notch specs.
Earlier this month, Google's executive chairman Eric Schmidt said Motorola's upcoming smartphones are "very, very impressive" and "phenomenal." The AnTuTu Benchmark result doesn't reveal much else about the Google X device, but it heralds an imminent debut. Google X, anyone?
