New Moto X May Feature Rear Fingerprint Scanner: Report

Buzz has it that Motorola is coordinating with Google to develop a fingerprint scanner technology for the upcoming Google Nexus 6. However, now the official stance has made it clear that the next Nexus phone will not have this feature. On another end, fresh rumors have emerged stating that an upcoming Moto X variant will soon arrive. This one will be loaded with a fingerprint scanner, according to what was spotted in an early pre-production model for Moto X.

This has been spotted in an assembly line of the product. What is surprising is that the scanner is placed behind the hood–under the camera sensor.
