After getting a sneak peek of the 2016 Moto G, it looks like we're now getting reliable leaks of the 2016 Moto X. Both Evleaks and HelloMotoHK have posted pictures of a new Motorola phone identified as the company's new flagship.
Long smartphone product pipelines mean this will be the first round of Motorola phones that new owner Lenovo has had a significant hand in, and the new Moto X definitely seems like a departure from past models. The "all-metal" design would be a big improvement over the old Moto X, but it also makes us question if the low price will stick around. On the back there's a very large camera assembly and a rear-facing speaker. Motorola has been a big proponent of front-facing speakers in the past, but it looks like that's coming to an end with Lenovo.
The bottom of the phone has a huge bezel, which houses a new fingerprint reader, just like the Moto G. On the front, there are four sensors at each corner of the display, which most likely means active display—a feature that lets you wave a hand over the display to turn it on—will return. It looks like the Moto X will see a launch on Verizon, too. HelloMotoHK has a version festooned with Droid logos.
