Moto Z (2017) with Snapdragon 835, Android 7.1.1 spotted on Geekbench

Motorola's Moto Z series consists of semi-modular smartphones, that comes with optional add-on accessories called Moto Mods. These accessories are backplates that snap to the rear of the devices to offer extra battery life, new rear design or turn the phone into a projector, professional camera or powerful speaker.

The company introduced the Moto Z last year, and now it appears that work has begun on its successor. A device carrying model number XT1650 alleged to be the Moto Z (2017) have been spotted on Geekbench running the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

As per the listing, Moto Z 2017 will feature Qualcomm's top tier 1.9GHz octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB RAM, which is surprising, because most of the smartphone brands are expected to use 6GB RAM on their top end flagship devices this year. Motorola's current flagship the Moto Z has Snapdragon 820 chip and 4GB RAM.Nothing else was revealed.

Similar to first-gen Moto Z, the Moto Z 2017 will also have support for Moto Mods. It is not known when Motorola will unveil the Moto Z 2017, but we can rule out MWC, as it's been little over six months, Moto outed the Moto Z 2016.
