The third generation of the Moto X series may come in 5.2-inch and 5.7-inch variants with built-in fingerprint scanners

The rumor-mongers are at it again with more speculation on the upcoming third generation of Moto X smartphones. This time, there will supposedly be two models of different sizes in a manner similar to the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The larger 5.7-inch model may be exclusive to Verizon for U.S. customers, while the smaller 5.2-inch model would sport a 2560 x 1440 resolution display and be available for all carriers.

Recent pictures from China supposedly reveal the chassis and internals of the upcoming Moto X 2015. The leaked images show a cutout of where the camera and aperture would be placed and what appears to be a fingerprint scanner adjacent to the Motorola logo.

Other internal specifications include the model name XT1542, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 SoC, 4 GB RAM, USB Type-C port, stereo speakers, Android 5.1.1, and 16 MP and 5 MP rear and front cameras.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
