Motorola is set to join the fingerprint scanner camp together with Apple, HTC and Pantech. A mysterious Motorola XT1032
with fingerprint scanner was spotted on GFXBench database.
The Motorola XT1032 is also known as the Motorola Falcon from the codename. Well. The Motorola XT1032 is similar like the Moto X, which isn’t a high end smartphone. The Motorola Falcon is powered by a Snapdragon S4 MSM8226 quad-core chipset and Adreno 305 GPU. Filing from GFXBench revealed that the Snapdragon S4 chipset is clocked at 1.2GHz at maximum.
The Motorola XT1032 has a fingerprint scanner as mentioned by the “android.os.Build.FINGERPRINT” from the filing. The display resolution of the Falcon is 1196 x 720. The Motorola XT1032 is set to become second device after the LG Nexus 5 to come with Android 4.4 KitKat.
After we crawled into older press releases of Qualcomm, we found out that the Snapdragon S4 MSM8225 supports UMTS, CDMA and TD-SCDMA networks. The chipset also supports support multi-SIM capabilities with Dual SIM, Dual Standby; and Dual SIM, Dual Active. In addition to quad-core CPU processing power, the MSM8226 incorporate the new WTR2605 multi-mode radio transceiver, optimized to address China specific requirements such as support for TD-SCDMA, CDMA 1xAdv and HSPA+.
Cristiano Amon, executive vice president and co-president of mobile and computing products, Qualcomm Technologies said that the Snapdragon S4 MSM8226 is for the low budget markets.
From the statement from Qualcomm, it seems like the Motorola Falcon is likely to enter the Chinese market soon. China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom are the possible destinations for the device since the chipset supports TD-SCDMA, CDMA 1xAdv and HSPA+.
Of course, the Motorola XT1032 aka Falcon may still on its way to the American and European markets in the future. We expect more leaks coming out soon.
Update: This “android.os.Build.FINGERPRINT” is not related to fingerprint recognition feature. You can find “android.os.Build.FINGERPRINT” from Nexus 5’s benchmark info as well. Sorry for the wrong information.
