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
