Motorola X phone to be released Late Summer


Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside said during his interview at the AllThingsD conference: The Motorola X Phone is real. It’s going to be called the Moto X, it will be the first smartphone to be assembled in the US, and it could be available as soon as this summer, going into October.


While specific details on the hardware of the Moto X are scarce, Dennis Woodside shared some select information on the device that has us excited for more. According to Woodside, the Moto X will feature an OLED display, but that’s not going to be the device’s big draw. The Moto X will feature a handful of unique sensors, differentiating it from other smartphones on the market.

“We know when it’s in your pocket, we know when it’s in your hand, it’s going to know when you want to take a picture and fire up the cameras,”

said Woodside.

Original details on the Moto X included a unique stock Android experience Google can’t provide with Nexus devices, due to a lack of total control. Woodside is sticking firm to claims that Motorola is operating completely outside of Google’s control, but did admit that Android head Sundar Pichai has seen it.

Woodside was very proud of the fact that the Moto X is going to be the first smartphone assembled, designed and engineered in the US. In a factory in Texas that was used to assemble Nokia phones, Motorola will be assembling the Moto X with some parts sourced from outside the country.
As for when the Moto X will be released, Woodside said, “by October.” But a press release has been issued that says it will be available this summer. Now that we know a bit more on the elusive Moto X, what do you think? Does a summer phone purchase seem likely in your future? Having just bought the HTC One I think that if I want the Moto X it will have to be a christmas pressie.
