Motorola believed to be testing a new 64-bit budget smartphone

A new leak from Geekbench has revealed the existence of a mystery Motorola budget handset, sporting a Snapdragon 410 SoC. The name of the smartphone has not been shown in the listing, but it appears to be something like the Moto E which was launched earlier this year to widespread success in developing markets.

The chipset shown here is 64-bit and has a maximum clock speed of 1.4 GHz, which makes it pretty future proof especially with the arrival of Android 5.0 around the corner. The Geekbench listing also shows the handset to be featuring 1GB of RAM with Android 4.4.4 on board, but that could change during the device’s official launch as Lollipop starts becoming mainstream.

Considering the fact that Motorola handsets run a relatively stock version of Android, it’s not hard to imagine the smartphone running Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. But we’re still some distance away from that as this is merely a benchmark listing at the moment. We expect to hear more about this mystery budget device from Motorola. Could this be the Moto E successor? It certainly looks that way.
