New Moto X may fix your low-light selfie problems with front-facing flash

Leaked pictures also indicate Motorola found a way to integrate the fingerprint sensor into the bottom speaker.


The next Moto X may bring a burst of light to those nighttime selfies. 

A new batch of leaked photos indicate that Motorola may include flash with the front-facing camera in its next flagship device. The latest leaks first appeared on an Android fan site called “Android Peru.”

Motorola may bump the screen size to 5.5 inches for the next Moto X.

The other unique feature is a fingerprint sensor integrated into the bottom speaker. This would be a huge space saver and give the phone a cleaner look compared to rivals. For example, the Galaxy S6 and Apple’s iPhone have the fingerprint scanner integrated with a home button.

The bottom speaker may also contain a fingerprint sensor.

The back has a very textured look, though this could be one of several options as Motorola allows you to customize its phones with the Moto Maker tool. Additionally, the Facebook fan site reports the screen will be 5.5 inches, a bump up from the current model. The new device may also have a 2K display and a 21 MP rear-facing camera.

Why this matters: The front-facing flash and fingerprint sensor/speaker combo would be some nice differentiators for the Moto X. While Motorola has typically built solid phones with stock Android, we’re most curious about the camera quality. Both the current Moto X and Nexus 6 suffer from sub-par shooters, which has kept them from getting our full seal of approval. If Motorola can solve this issue, the next Moto X could indeed be a tempting option.
