    What is not? 5.7 not a verizon exclusive or the new X not being 5.2"? or both?
    I have no inside info. I just read about that on phonearena
    UPDATE: We have some new information to share related to this leak Apparently, there will be two versions of the third-generation Moto X. One variant with a 5.7-inch QHD screen will be a Verizon exclusive. The other model will feature a 5.2-inch QHD panel.

    I think Phone arena are the only ones running with that rumor. I believe what happasaiyan is saying.

    It's interesting that there are two Nexus phones rumored with the same exact screensizes as the new Moto X variants

    It more seems coincidence to me; 5.2 and 5.7 seem like pretty standard screen sizes for regular and phablet phones.

    Unfortunately, I have not seen/heard anything about one. I would LOVE to have one, though, especially with the new features of Android M.

    Purely coincidence. Moto had the next Nexus in the bag, but decided not to.

    Hmm, dang, I'm sad to hear that. I had hoped that Moto would have been able to get a good finger print scanner since they were trying last year. I do appreciate all the info you are passing on though!

    Interesting that they turned it down, I bet the nexus 6 wasn't worth it for them.

    Moto CEO Rick Osterloh said in March the next Moto X won't have a fingerprint scanner cause they're "unreliable."

    If I remember that correctly, Osterloh's comments were about why the Nexus 6 and/or second gen Moto X don't have fingerprint scanners. It was rumored that the dimple was supposed to be a scanner this time around.

    from article: technology is still too inconsistent for their devices.

    I've read it other places also, where he said they're inconsistent and "it’s just as fast to tap your finger to unlock a device as it is to swipe for a fingerprint."

    obviously a lot can change from then til the moto x release, but judging from those comments, I think it's fair to say it's unlikely.

    I hope me and the article are wrong, though fingerprint scanner is far down my list and not a deal breaker ... I'd rather see a bigger battery, better camera and USB-C.

    Nevermind. It was former CEO Woodside that said the Nexus 6 doesn't have a fingerprint scanner because they couldn't source the best one. http://www.androidcentral.com/nexus-...ition-supplier

    It still means they would probably do one if they were able to get a good one.

    I hope it's true. And I hope they put in a better camera and better battery. If that do that and it's not too big of a phone then I'd go for it.

    So, I have never taken one of my phones apart, but based on the picture could that be the dual flash led placeholder? Does it need that much space?

    Based on the new leaked designs, it shouldn't be the dimple, not low enough, and I know that the CEO guy said they wouldn't have one, but if the metal strip was added to be part of the Qualcomm Sense ID implementation, that would be really cool and with the other specs, don't know if could turn down the 5.2 inch version

    Also intrigued by the blocking out of data next to the fingerprint label

    I thought the same thing. Maybe the rumored 5.7" display is true, hopefully not.

    Looks like the latest rumor, despite their CEO saying otherwise just a few months ago, is that it'll have the fingerprint sensor.

    I'm guessing after they learned more about M (obviously well ahead of I/O) they realized that having a fingerprint sensor was a necessity.

    My concern is if the rumor is true, and they proceed with the QHD and improved camera, how are they gonna keep the price around $450-$500?

    Maybe they'll have a 5.2" version with lesser specs/features and the one we're looking at is the 5.7" which will be priced higher.

    I hope I'm wrong. I want a high end, future proofed 5.2" phone and I'll gladly pay a premium. I'd certainly like the fingerprint sensor, but it's certainly not a necessity. Just give me a better camera, bigger battery, with a 5.2" 1080p display and USB-C and I'll be ecstatic.

    I'm looking toward the 2015 Moto X for my next big thing.

    I do want a fingerprint sensor equivalent to the S6.

    I'd like at least a modicum of security with fingerprint convenience.

    we had a thread a few months ago asking for our perfect phone ... here's what I posted (check marks indicate rumored moto x specs):

    √ 3000+ mAh battery
    √ 5.2-5.5" display
    √ camera on par or slightly below G4/S6/iPhone 6+
    √ front speakers
    √ USB-C
    √ kevlar
    √ Moto X UX
    √ wireless charging

    if one or two of the rumored specs prove false, I'd still be extremely happy. my top 3 that I hope make it are:

    1) same/similar near stock Android
    2) bigger battery
    3) camera close to on par w S6/G4

    if we get that with the front speakers and kevlar I'll be ecstatic.

    I still think it would be really cool to have a fingerprint scanner, but it looks more and more like that isn't going to happen
