More pictures of the Motorola Moto X (2015) leak, no fingerprint scanner present
It was a week ago when images allegedly exposing the 2015-edition Motorola Moto X smartphone surfaced on the web. According to the source's leak, the handset was equipped with a Snapdragon SoC and 3GB of RAM, along with a Quad HD-resolution display. Then came the leaks suggesting that the phone might also pack a fingerprint scanner on its back. Or at least that's what an opening in the device's chassis was expected to accommodate.

Today, the stream of Moto X (2015) leaks continues with a new set of images. First and foremost, the source of the latest leak claims that a fingerprint scanner won't be found on the device. It is said that previous leaks were showing an old engineering sample of the handset and that the production model won't have the aforementioned opening. The finalized version of the 2015-edition Motorola Moto X should look a lot more like the device seen in the first image below.  

The same source is also presenting us with a photo of a mysterious Motorola handset's frame – the third image in the gallery below. While details are scarce, it is clear to see that the device is supposed to boast wireless charging capabilities. It is speculated that the phone could be a new Nexus model, but evidence in support of this claim is non-existent. In fact, the statement is in contradiction with previous rumors, claiming that Huawei and/or LG could build this year's Nexus device or devices.

And if that's not enough, we're also heading that a "Droid Mini" smartphone of some kind is in the works. The device is supposed to launch this year with Verizon. However, the source has not shared any images of it. 

We apologize if this leak raises more questions about the Moto X 2015 than it answers. In any case, if we learn any further details about the upcoming smartphone, we'll pass them along ASAP. Until then, feel free to drop a line below and say whether you really want a fingerprint scanner in the next Motorola Moto X smartphone.

I really hope one of these is the Moto G3 with 1080p 5" screen, QC610 and similar handy design, nano coating, better camera and bigger battery. Sell it at the Xiaomi Mi 4i price (200-240USD) and you've demolished the rest of the midrange.

AFAIK from the flipkart leak, MOTO G3 may have Snapdragon 610 + 2 GB RAM + 5.2" 1080p Display ...

Yeah but that one borders on the slightly over optimistic side. SD610 + .2 larger FHD points to a bit of a markup for the G territory just sayin..

I wonder if Motorola will strike a home run with this one or will it be strike three?
