Next Tuesday, Motorola is going to show off new products to us at an event in New York. Some of us think we’ll only get a new Moto G (3rd gen), while others are hopeful that a new Moto X (3rd gen) will join the party as well. For those on the new Moto X wagon, we present to you the photo below, which is purportedly of the front of the device, fitted with all the marks necessary to get someone fired.
Is it the real deal? I don’t know, but I kind of hope so.
The photo comes courtesy of a guy on G+ named Paul Faz, who included accompanying text of “Moto X 3rd generation front flash.” That does appear to be a flash in the top right corner, and yes, early rumors for the new Moto X did suggest that it may have a front-facing flash.
Paul did mention in the comments of his G+ post that the display is 5.5-inches on this phone,
but that there may be a second phone joining it called the “Moto X Sport” with a 5.2-inch display. (Edit: Paul more than likely is just passing on internet rumors, so I wouldn’t buy into what he’s dropping. He grabbed this photo from another location.)
Other than that, we are seeing a similar shape to the past couple of Moto X phones, though hopefully the front speakers are actually stereo this time around. There is little bezel, a familiar boot animation, and what is more than likely some shine off of a metal frame.
Update: And would you look at that, more pictures! This time courtesy of this Peru Android Facebook page. According to this page, Motorola may have included a fingerprint sensor in the bottom speaker (would require a swipe), though I have my serious doubts about that being possible. We are seeing that front flash again too!
Moto, here we come.
Update 2: And another, now in white and gold.
