As the launch of Motorola’s Moto X (3rd gen) approaches closer, numerous leaks have been doing the rounds as to what specifications the phone is going to offer. One such apparent leak comes from GFXBench, the graphics performance benchmarking application, and the serial leakster @OnLeaks (Stever Hemmerstoffer) spotted it and uploaded the information of Motorola “Kinzie” (XT1585) on his Twitter account. While it isn’t apparent that “Kinzie” refers to the Moto X (3rd Gen), the specifications and the impending launch tend to give it away.

According to the information available as of now, the Motorola’s “Kinzie” comes with a 5.5-inch QHD display with a 5-finger gesture support. It appears that the device is equipped with a 1.9GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor along with the Adreno 430 GPU, and 3GB of RAM. It is also likely to run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box. Moreover, it will also provides 32GB of internal storage space. The leaked specifications also suggests a 20MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and a 3,280mAh battery.
Motorola’s Moto X (3rd Gen) is expected to be launched this September, and as expected there is heavy buzz around its details. A previous leak had suggested that this phone is likely to have a Snapdragon 808 processor, something that this tipster’s post negates. Another rumour doing the rounds suggests that this device is likely to come with a fingerprint scanner at the back, inside the famous “dimple” of Motorola logo.
Another leak previously had suggested that this device would sport the USB-C type charger port instead of the microUSB port. This particular move of letting go of the microUSB port for the USB-C port had been previously taken up by OnePlus for its OnePlus 2. Even Google added support for USB Type-C port with the announcement of Android M during Google I/O 2015.
