Courtesy of Android Peru on Facebook, we have some photos of what may just be the third generation Moto X. You guys get more excited about leaked gadget photos than you do about celebrity wardrobe malfunctions, so I'll let you check out the pics before I point out my observations.
Ok, here are the things that I spotted that may be new if this is indeed the Moto X 2015.

OnePlus wants to tease us all on a semi-daily basis until the big reveal of the OnePlus 2 on July 27th, but it looks like it won't have quite the same impact now. Images of the new phone have appeared on the TENAA website, which is China's version of the FCC. So what does it look like? Imagine an awkward fusion of a OnePlus One and a Galaxy S6.
Microsoft has restricted the Cortana virtual assistant to Windows device thus far, but an official Android release is right around the corner. You don't have to wait, though. The beta Cortana app has leaked, and it appears to be fully functional. Just grab the app from APK Mirror and give it a shot.
With all the rumors and now some FCC documents to go on, it seems a foregone conclusion that Samsung will be releasing a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge called the S6 Edge Plus. Now there are a few leaked images that seem to show a dummy Edge Plus unit, which gives you a good idea what the real device will look like. It's sitting next to a Note 4 dummy in the pics to illustrate the increased size. Read More
The original Moto X was launched with Moto Maker customization options, and the second iteration expanded the selection of materials. Through it all the modest Moto G has been mostly left out of the fun, but a leak from Evan "@evleaks" Blass points to possible Moto Maker support for the upcoming Moto G refresh.
We've been hearing rumblings about an Android Wear update coming out in the next few weeks, and now Phandroid has some info on what might be included. The next update will have two main feature additions—a watch-to-watch communication system and interactive watch faces.
It's getting to be the time of year when Motorola announces its new smartphones, and the 2015 Moto G has been especially leaky. We've seen some blurry-cam shots and a dark video so far, but now the HD press renders have leaked courtesy of TechnoBuffalo.
We've already taken an extensive look at all the options and interface changes in the new and unreleased Google Photos app that should be decoupling from Google+ and hitting our devices sometime down the line, and now it's time to peek behind the scenes at the app's settings, specifically its backup options.
With the current Photos app, the first run asks you to enable or disable photo backup and asks whether you want to use cellular networks or not. Read More
Google's current Photos app uses some image processing smarts to piece together auto-awesome compilations and Stories, but the new Photos experience pushes the limits of computer vision. Not only does it pick out and identify faces, it recognizes objects like cars and food. It's not perfect, but it's sometimes creepily accurate.
We gave you an overview of the new Google Photos app earlier today, but there's a lot more to see than can be covered in a single post. We're breaking some of the new features out so we can go over them in detail. First up, the new link sharing component of Google Photos. Not only can you share photos or videos in a snap, you can preserve some of your privacy while doing it. Read More
