Motorola Moto X 2015 updates: phone to feature 5.2-inch QHD, but with no fingerprint scanner


The upcoming Motorola Moto X 3<sup>rd Generation is certainly the subject of hype these days, as details about the upcoming new flagship phone have leaked and have been continuously surfacing online.

A report over GSMArena said that the Moto X 3<sup>rd Gen is expected to feature a 5.2-inch QHD display. This is from a photo of the supposed Moto X 3<sup>rd Gen’s full phone details.

Just recently, photos have surfaced online teasing fans with the hardware features of the new phone. The first set of leaked photos of the alleged Moto X 2015 phone came from a report over GForGames. The report showed the phones chassis with a slot for what seems to be a fingerprint scanner. The Moto X was not previously rumored to have this feature, and that made news that gave excitement from some of the fans waiting for its release.

However, barely a day after the said “leak” of a supposed inclusion of a fingerprint scanner, a new report surfaced along with a brand new set of “leaked” photos for the Moto X 3<sup>rd Gen. Phone Arena posted the said follow up to the previous report, with photos posted by HelloMotoHK on Facebook. The new set of photos still showed the phone’s chassis. However, the slot for a fingerprint scanner was scrapped and not there anymore. It is said that the image with the alleged fingerprint scanner was an old engineering sample, and that the production model won’t have that opening for such a feature, making the phone look like the latest leak by HelloMotoHK.

The Motorola Moto X 3<sup>rd Generation is expected to run under a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 Processor with an Adreno 418 GPU. The phone will come with two different models, one with 32GB of built-in internal storage, and another with a 64GB capacityboth equipped with 4GB RAM, and without support for external microSD expansion.
