Motorola fans, who were ruing about the possibilities of their favourite Moto X series being discontinued, can now heave a sigh of relief as the flagship line is reportedly alive and could be released soon. A new leak has suggested that Motorola could be working on the fourth generation Moto X that may be called the Moto X (2016) or Moto X (4th Gen).

It was earlier reported that Motorola would kill its flagship series Moto X and replace it with a new Z family. The company has released two handsets -- the Moto Z and Moto Z Force -- from the newly floated line.

A new Motorola device with model number Motorola XT1662 has been spotted on GFXBench benchmarking site (via Timesnews) and it is believed to be the Moto X (2016) or Moto X (4th Gen). It is spotted sporting a 4.6-inch full HD touchscreen with 1,920x1080 pixel resolution, powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 processor clocking at 2.1GHz, houses an ARM Mali-T860 GPU, and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system out of the box. 

The new new device is also seen with a 32GB internal memory, 3GB RAM, a 16MP main camera with LED flash and an 8MP front-snapper. It also supports WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, and USB.

Nobody knows the release date of the device but it could come in July, as the Moto X (3rd Gen) will complete a year cycle in the market by this time.
