Third Gen Moto X Poses For Paparazzi, Shows Off 5.5-inch Display And Front Flash

Motorola is getting ready to unveil new mobile devices, which we know because it's been sending members of the press invitations to a livestream event scheduled to take place on July 28 (next Tuesday) at a bright and early 6 AM Pacific. While nothing has yet been confirmed, it's generally believed that Motorola will unveil a new Moto 360 smartwatch and a new handset or two.

Speculation is all over the place on what smartphone Motorola will unveil. Some believe it will be the a third generation Moto G, while others are holding firm that a third generation Moto X (see our review of the second generation Moto X) is in the cards. If you're hopeful for the latter, you may be encouraged by photos of the purported Moto X starting to leak on the web. If the photos are real, it would be a pretty strong indication that a Moto X launch is imminent.

Moto X

The folks at Droid-Life rounded up a handful of supposed Moto X photos from multiple locations, including Google+ and Facebook. Unfortunately, none of the original sources seem particularly reliable -- Google+ user Paul Faz added commentary to his photos that seem to parrot existing Internet rumors. However, it's all we have to go on at the moment, in terms of pics.

In any event, Faz claims the forthcoming Moto X will sport a 5.5-inch display and a front-facing flash to help with selfies in low-light conditions. There's also mention of a fingerprint sensor, perhaps integrated into the bottom speaker, as weird as that may sound.

The pictures show a textured back and an extremely thin bezel on the sides of the display. Otherwise, there's not a whole lot that can be discerned from the photos.
