We have been hearing rather a lot about the Moto X 3rd gen during the last couple of days.
It is a time we have a look at what’s coming from Motorola since they tend to introduce new Moto X phones around the end of August. With the purchase of Motorola by Lenovo now complete, this 12 months must be especially interesting for the Chicago-based smartphone maker if something, to see how Lenovo treats one of its new outlet’s product launches.
Chinese website MyDrivers is back once again, exhibiting what they believe are a number of images of the next-gen Moto X, well, its chassis anyway. Apart from giving us a take a look at the basic outline of the device, the frame has a peculiar cut out quite below the camera gap. It is rather a sq. in shape, leading some to believe that the phone’s “M” logo will act as a fingerprint scanner. Apart from that, not a lot else was revealed from this leak.
1st, model number XT1542 is one to keep an eye on. The character has popped in supposed benchmark screenshots, together with references to a 5.2-inch QHD display screen (2560×1440), 16MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 4GB of RAM, & a Snapdragon 810 processor (with Adreno 430 GPU).
These numbers, in fact, differ from the set of numbers that popped up over on Reddit a month or so ago. Then, we saw numbers of XT192A, XT1585, and XT1578.
As you can see within the image above, the device appears to be just like what we’ve come to anticipate from Motorola during the last couple of years. Rounded edges and overall form shape comply with Motorola devices as well. However what’s more interesting right here today is that if you look carefully at the picture above and below, you’ll see what seems to be the slot for a fingerprint sensor.
While a number of components are missing from this alleged chassis of the Moto X, probably the most striking is the fingerprint sensor. If true, this most likely implies that Motorola’s device will also be coming with a fingerprint sensor on its rear. Whereas the merits of having biometric recognition on a device’s rear vs the front will be debated, Motorola will lastly be joining the checklist of manufacturers shipping units with this rising trend. The 3rd Generation Moto X is shaping up to be fairly an interesting device indeed. Keep tuned for more updates and tell us what you think within the comments section below.
