Motorola has yet to unveil the third-gen Moto X but various reports are already offering plenty of details on the purported specs and features of the device. One such report comes from a Verizon employee who apparently has knowledge of two new interesting features coming to Motorola handsets.

Verizon engineer Jose Arturo revealed on Google+ (now deleted) that the Droid Turbo will receive the Lollipop treatment in mid-June. Further digging through his older posts, Droid-Life has discovered new Moto X details as well.

In a post in April, Arturo said that Motorola will bring “front-facing flash for selfies” and microSD support to the 2015 Moto X version. This post also appears to have been deleted. Even so, Motorola is yet to confirm this new Moto X info.

Previous Moto X versions have lacked microSD support, so this particular feature might be welcomed by Android fans who still prefer flagship devices with microSD slots. The front-facing selfie flash might not be a must-have feature, but it’s still nice to have

Previous rumors detailing the new Moto X claimed the phone will have a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32/64GB, 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, 5-megapixel front-facing shooter and 3,280 mAh battery.
