The new Moto G has been leaking a lot this month, but what about the company’s new flagship Moto X? A fresh benchmark from Geekbench may reveal what we can expect from the high-end smartphone.

The listing in question covers a device called the Motorola XT-1650, which sounds like a sequel to last year’s Moto X Pure Edition (model number XT-1575). The new phone packs a Snapdragon 820 and 3778MB of RAM (likely rounded up to 4GB at launch). That’s all we know for the moment, but we should learn more as the device continues to leak out.

Considering that the new Moto G is expected to pack a fingerprint scanner it seems likely we’ll see a similar sensor included in this year’s Moto X. It’s unclear how else the design might change, though it looks like Motorola and Lenovo could also be working on a redesigned rear camera.

Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanquing recently revealed that the company has some “exciting” news planned for June 9. So we may get an official look at the new Moto X and Moto G lineup in a little over a month.
