A snapshot of the purported Moto X 2016 surfaced, revealing that the upcoming smartphone will sport a fingerprint sensor and what seems to be a USB Type-C port at the bottom.
First things first, the alleged photo of the phone seems to have been taken on a train, but anyone's guess is as good as everyone else's at this point. As mentioned earlier, it shows a fingerprint scanner right below the phone's display and a USB Type-C port positioned at the base, but aside from those two tidbits, the easily recognizable Motorola logo is on the upper left corner and a white dot is found on the upper right corner, which could indicate the return of the front snapper with flash to boot.
The fingerprint sensor shouldn't come as much of a surprise, though, as a Lenovo executive already confirmed that top-of-the-line Moto handsets in 2016 will have the feature embedded in them.
For those who don't know, Motorola is under Lenovo's corporate umbrella.
Now, about where it came from, the reliable provider of leaked pictures hellomotoHK posted it on Google+, giving everyone a blurry but good glimpse of the anticipated handset.
While the image is already exciting, it's also interesting how the leakster mentioned "Moto Infinity." That could mean just about anything for now. Perhaps it's a new lineup or just an exaggerated remark.
It's also worth mentioning that this could be the rumored Moto X3 that Lenovo-owned Motorola is expected to roll out this year, as a Zauba listing indicated that it's going to be a 5-inch device and the handset in the photo seems to be roughly the same size.
To boil things down, it's difficult to jump to conclusions with the sole cloudy evidence at hand, but nevertheless, it does provide a pretty good idea of what the new Moto roster will turn out to be.
