It seems like Lenovo is wasting no time to capitalise on the success of the Moto Z, its modular flagship phone in 2016. The 2017 Moto Z has allegedly been spotted on benchmarking site Geekbench and by the looks, it is set to come with the latest hardware packed powering it.

Spotted first by Android Pure, the 2017 Moto Z, dubbed Moto XT1650, might be powered by the Snapdragon 835, Qualcomm's 10nm SoC that was unveiled at CES this year. The memory will likely remain the same as last year at 4GB. As a result, the benchmark scores posted on the website looked impressive- 1930 for single-core performance and 6207 for multi-core performance.



In comparison, the 2016 Moto Z posted scores of 1474 for single-core performance and 3847 for multi-core performance, proving the might of the Snapdragon 835 processor.

The phone may also run Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box. There is no news about the modular nature of the phone, though.

Lenovo, however has not mentioned anything about the new Moto Z, although an encore is almost inevitable going by the success it achieved last year. On the other hand, Lenovo has sent out invites for the launch of the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus on February 26th on the sidelines of MWC in Barcelona.

The Moto G5 was earlier leaked in screenshots by benchmarking app CPU-Z. It will reportedly be powered by the Snapdragon 625 processor (the same found in the newly-launched Xiaomi Redmi Note 4) coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, with a 5.5-inch full HD panel on top. It may also come running Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box. As for the optics, there may be a 12-megapixel rear camera with a 5-megapixel shooter in the front.
