Moto X4 (XT1789) to carry Snapdragon 660 processor as per Geekbench

Motorola’s upper-midrange smartphone, the Moto X4 has been doing the rumor rounds for quite some time now. It was also touted to be released on July 25th which clearly didn’t happen. It has hit the news headlines once again by landing at benchmarking site Geekbench.

Bearing model number XT1789, the Motorola device is seen packing underneath a Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor clocked at 2.21GHz. Although there’s nothing to confirm that the listed XT1789 Motorola model on Geekbench is indeed Moto X4, the SD 660 processor on board falls in line with past reports suggesting that the fourth gen Moto X will be powered by this latest mid-range SoC.
