Third-generation Motorola Moto X might be equipped with a fingerprint scanner
A recent leak that discussed specs and showed images of the third-generation Motorola Moto X claimed that there will be two variants of the phone. A 5.7-inch version is said to be a Verizon exclusive, while a 5.2-inch Moto X will be available for other carriers. Another new leak surfaced on Tuesday morning. Pictures that alleged to show the inner workings of the third-gen Moto X showed that the phone has cut outs designed for a fingerprint scanner module.

The picture of the chassis didn't show many components in place, so the lack of the fingerprint scanning module doesn't mean that it won't be offered on the device. In fact, with a square cut out perfectly located underneath the camera, the odds would seem to favor that a fingerprint scanner will be embedded inside the Motorola logo on the back of the phone.

With the number of leaks for the third-generation Moto X picking up over the last week or two, it is a pretty strong indication that we could see the next Moto X hit the market in August or September as stated by Motorola president Rick Osterloh. When it does get launched, the next Moto X will be powered by the Snapdragon 810 SoC with 4GB of RAM inside. A 16MP camera graces the rear of the phone, which will have stereo speakers and the new Type-C USB port.

Thanks for the tip!
