Moto X (2015) leaked images show front-facing flash, possible fingerprint reader

Leaks regarding the Moto X (2015) haven’t been as frequent as those of its Moto G (2015) cousin, but they’ve been regular, to say the least. We have now chanced upon alleged images of the former which seeming to be showcasing two very important aspects about it.

First among them is that the Moto X (2015) will apparently ship with a front-facing flash, giving it the ability to click well-lit self-portraits. Selfies are a trend that manufactures can simply not afford to ignore. Rumor has it that even Apple has incorporated a selfie-friendly front flash on its iPhone 6S smartphone range.

The image that shows the rear end of the third generation Moto X is indicating that Motorola has given up on the fancy ring flash that was found on its predecessor. The traditional dual LED flash module can clearly be seen sitting inside the new strip design of the device.

The source of these pictures, Perú Android is claiming that the bottom speaker of the new Moto X will double up as a fingerprint scanner that will work with swipes. That seems like a far-fetched speculation; so we’re taking it with a grain of salt right now.

This upcoming Motorola flagship is believed to feature a Quad HD monitor of 5.5 or 5.2 inches in size. It will apparently carry onboard the controversial Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset. A 16MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera and a 3280mAh battery are some of its other speculated specs.
