Is this the 2016 Motorola Moto X flagship?
Last week we got a sniff at a potential incoming device from Motorola, with the so-called 'Moto X3' having been spotted en route to India via the Zauba tracking website. Now, a snap of an unspecified Motorola smartphone has been leaked online, which may provide us with our first proper look at what the Lenovo-owned firm has in store for 2016.

The aforementioned Zauba info gave little away about the X3 besides its 5-inch display and the fact that it's a single-SIM GSM handset; not the most riveting of feature run-downs. But pictures are much more exciting than mere words, and hellomotoHK has shared an image that may or may not relate to the smartphone referenced a week back. 

The device looks to have been snapped on a train, unbeknownst to the apparent owner. At a guess, we'd say the display is of at least five inches, though it's pretty hard to tell for definite. There looks to be a fingerprint sensor below the display, a feature that a Lenovo executive already confirmed would make its way to the higher-end Moto devices this year. The port at the bottom, meanwhile, looks to be of the USB Type-C variety. 

The famous Motorola logo is barely discernible, but it's there, and though details are scant for now, here's hoping this sighting is trailed by some more substantial information

Is that a round front home button?

I'm pretty sure that is a fingerprint sensor.

If we're looking at a physical home button, deal breaker for me...

Throw in Project Fi support and I'll get one day one.... then again, I think that's more up to Google than Motorola/Lenovo.

If the X-Force had this & Qi charging, I would have gone for it and not the S7 Edge

Looks like another front speaker falls victim to the fingerprint scanner.

I really hope that they will come with a full metal phone, top notch hardware, and those stereo speakers, also unlocked like the current Pure Edition good for all US major carriers.
Then I will consider as a candidate, alongside the upcoming HTC10 and Nexus. I'm patiently waiting...
