Leaked photos allegedly show Motorola Moto X 3rd Gen with a fingerprint scanner

According to a previous leak, the Motorola Moto X 3rd Gen will be available in two variants. One will sport a 5.7-inch screen (exclusive to US network operator Verizon), while the other will sport a 5.2-inch screen, presumably for international markets and other carriers in the US. A new leak shows the internals of the smartphone, and what seems to be a fingerprint scanner.

The photos were leaked by Chinese-speaking MyDrivers, revealing that the fingerprint scanner may be located on the Motorola logo under the camera flash. The photos of the smartphone’s internals show a square cut, suggesting where the fingerprint scanner may be found.

According to previous leaks the Motorola Moto X 3rd Gen will sport a Quad HD screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (pixel density of 565 ppi), a 16-megapixel Clear Pixel rear-facing camera with OIS (optical image stabilisation), a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32 GB to 64 GB of internal storage, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, an Adreno 430 GPU, 4 GB of RAM, and the new Type-C USB port. It will run Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) out of the box.

So when do we get to see the Moto X 3rd Gen? According to Motorola president Rick Osterloh, the smartphone will be launched in either August or September.

Of course, since we can’t confirm if the photos are authentic or not, take this with a pinch of salt.
