2014’s edition of the Moto X was one of our favorite Android phones of the year and our hopes are high that the 2015 Moto X will be even better. G for Games points us to some new pictures posted over at Chinese website MyDrivers that purportedly give us our first glimpse at Motorola’s next flagship phone, and it appears the device may be the first Moto X to come with a fingerprint scanner.

MyDrivers claims that the empty blue square we see below the camera module on the device is where the fingerprint scanner for the 2015 Moto X will go, although it’s impossible to know anything for certain given just how many parts are missing in the pictured device.

All the same, it makes perfect sense that the 2015 Moto X would have a built-in fingerprint scanner since Google announced last month at Google I/O that Android M will add native support for fingerprint scanners, which means we should start to see fingerprint scanners on all flagship Android phones going forward. And since the 2015 Moto X will likely launch sometime in August or September, it’s obviously going to get the upgrade to Android M, which means there’s no reason for Motorola to not include a fingerprint scanner.
