Not sure if this has come up elsewhere, regarding the Moto X/M leak a few weeks ago (just move it if it has), but I can't seem to find any information on the SOC that is being reported. Only thing I seem to find is that it's Cat-6 compatible, but it doesn't appear that this chipset is used in any existing Sprint phones (or other US phone, seems only to be overseas) to get an idea of how well the radios work and what the connectivity would be like.
Obviously, it would only have 2-band CA as well as other limitations, but do we have anything comparable to this to give us an idea if we should be watching for a mid-range phone that will be hitting above its weight class? Or should we all just suck it up and go with the next Nexus and the Snapdragon 82X? I'm really gunning for the 4.6" Moto, but if the reception is lacking (whether LTE or WiFi), or it's not Sprint LTE Plus compatible, I'd rather just not waste my time. I'm still rocking my 2013 Moto X, I just really wish it were LTE Plus at this point, with a little bit better RAM management.
When I think more about this merger now that we're approaching April 1, I think back to these old Sprint advertisements and how things have turned out since.
These are first rate ads, and they certainly rival anything that the other three carriers put out there. However, this merger was bound to happen when these advertisements were better than the actual network. The icing on top was great, but the cake was falling apart underneath.

And here's how that turned out: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/softbank-drops-10-oneweb-files-012729027.html
