  • Snapdragon 400 and 5.5 inch 720p in late 2016?! :((
  • My sentiments exactly......and I'm not even a spec nerd lol D:
  • Jeez you understand that snapdragon 400 is the name Qualcomm use for their lower powered budget CPU?! It doesn't make any sense at all to say "snapdragon 400 in 2016?!"
  • According to the other article it "uses an ancient Snapdragon 400. Yeah, as in the same three-year-old chip powering the original Moto G from 2013". Posted from my unlocked S7 Active/ bomb Note 7/ peerless Note 4/ or iPad Pro 12.9
  • Should be the 410 processor, which is the 64 bit version I believe. That would be more inline with today $150-$250 phones.
  • More like SD430. 410 is crap too.
  • I bet you they will overprice these phones.
  • And that snapdragon 400 can handle 6.0 while other snapdragon 80x cant?
  • You're thinking of 7.0 that does not have support for 800/801
  • Terrible specs
  • Snapdragon 400? Even my first phone a.k.a Moto E had that... 3 years ago, and it was dirt cheap!
  • Terrible processor choices. Should've been SD430 in the LifeStyle and X10 in the Pro, if they were hell bent on a Mediatek one in the latter. The RAM and storage options are good, I guess.
  • I doubt that the processor is as lame as people are whining about here. What really interests me is getting into another phone with Boomsound stereo speakers. The way I use my phone for podcast playback more than for any other purpose, this is a great advantage over most every other device currently available. Any word on US carriers?
