Moto Z (XT1650) Being Imported Into India

By 07:35 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments

Before mentioning the import documents, I just want to shine some light on the rumors about a 2016 Moto X with the model number ‘XT1650’ which claim to be a 2016 MOto X with dual cameras.

These rumors aren’t accurate (surely, an honest mistake), so let me explain.

A “mysterious device” with the model number “XT1650” appeared this past weekdiscontinue on GFXBench. Since we didn’t know what model this was, it was assumed to be a Moto X with two cameras.

Here’s where it gets interesting. We got both the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid devices from Verizon last Thursday, which carry the model numbers: XT1650-01 and XT1650-02, respectively. Both models share the same main number with a different trailing number of either 01 or 02.

What likely happened is benchmarks were run with these review devices which assigned them a database entry in GFXBench. The Moto Z Droid and Z Force Droid are only different on a couple of specs: Thicker build, bigger battery, and higher-res camera. The Z Droid has a 13MP capturing camera and the Z Force Droid has a 21MP camera. Which would elaborate why GFX assigned both of these cameras to the same database entry.

Putting all that aside, the Moto Z was spotted coming into India from China via Delhi Air Cargo. The device in question is in fact, the Moto Z. The listing says “Motorola ZT1650 Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) Mobile phone single SIM with capacitive touch 5.5 (with valid IMEI…)

The Moto Z Droid Editions were officially announced last week at a Verizon event in NYC and we got some hands-on time with the devices as well. You can also find the “XT1650-02” model number on the bottom-view of the Z Force Droid next to the USB-C Port.
