Image of third-generation Motorola Moto X surfaces (UPDATE)
posted by Alan F. / Jun 04, 2015, 2:47 AM
A wood backed version of the third-generation Motorola Moto X has allegedly leaked. The image of the phone is said to have been disguised in order to prevent the source from getting into trouble. Before we start talking about the specs, we suggest that you head over to the spice rack and take this all with a grain of salt.
According to this new leak, the third-generation Motorola Moto X will come with a 5.64-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. An unknown Snapdragon chipset is under the hood with 3GB of RAM inside and 21GB of native storage available to the user. While not confirmed, a Type C USB port could be on board. Stereo speakers grace the handset. The phone will be offered in Plastic, Wood, Leather and an unnamed new material. Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed
It's not too surprising that images and specs relating to the third-gen Moto X have started circulating. After all, we recently saw the third-generation Motorola Moto G accidentally listed on Flipkart, and a phone that could be the third-generation Motorola Moto E recently received Bluetooth Certification.
Motorola is apparently working on its next-gen Moto models and we could see some more leaks popping up soon.
Thanks for the tip!
UPDATE: We have some new information to share related to this leak Apparently, there will be two versions of the third-generation Moto X. One variant with a 5.7-inch QHD screen will be a Verizon exclusive. The other model will feature a 5.2-inch QHD panel.

They haven't been able to get the X right since they started making them.

The X is fine, though it's always outdated. Their Verizon exclusives are the dumbest financial move ever though. On another note, QHD at 5.2 will be a no-thank you. If the price of the Nexus 6 stays at about $500, they'll have a huge problem competing against themselves.

Don't forget this earlier story: "Motorola is working on a pair of Snapdragon 808 & 810-powered QHD smartphones for Verizon" (can't post links) This seems to be the Moto "Clark" and the Moto "Kinzie" should come with top specs but a smaller screen. Maybe everyone will be happy after all?

Another phablet. Noooooooooo Last year, we had 4 'phone' flagships. Namely; S5, M8, Z2 and Moto X 2014. This year, we don't have a Z4 yet and Moto X is going phablet. This is depressing.

Personally there is a big difference between a 6" and a 5.64" phone, especially if we get nice small bezels. 6" is just too big, 5.64" is still big but will probably fit nicely in both the pocket and the hand. But yeah, the sweet spot is probably a little lower.

Why can't no-one get their flagship right?! Only coming close is Samsung, but s**tty battery and no SD card...rest all too big or some other failure..... 5,1 inch, SD, replaceable battery, snapdrag 810 or new Exynos, water resistant, 3500 mAH battery, Quad HD and 32GB minimum onboard --- whoever makes that has my money!

It's seems like phone technology have gone backwards. In the 80's available commercial phones are a size of a brick. As technology advances,phones got smaller and smaller,until it reached the smallest size (in the mid 2000's).And then after that everything grew bigger in size. Stop this nonsense

I really hope the screen size is fake: if the 560dpi (not ppi, but still) is correct, that would still make it a 5,2" inch like the Moto Maxx (QHD @ 5.2" is 565ppi). Even the X'14 is too wide for a 5.2" phone (see Nubia Z9 for reference).

WOW the back plate actually looks very decent - I didn't like the looks of 2nd gen X, but this is damn sweet. Nice one Moto.

The second generation moto x was supposed to have a finger print sensor where that logo was. I talked to some big wigs from Motorola and lenovo. The company they were it talks with went under some huge investigation or something and they lost faith in the company

Dudes, dudes this is probably a seperate phablet they're making, like a replacement for the Nexus 6 or something... I believe Rick Osterloh or someone at Motorola already said they were content with the 5.2" screen size... lol
