Google's Motorola upcoming "Moto X" Smartphone

Google's Motorola plans to launch a new smarter "Moto X" smartphone later this year. Motorola Mobility has confirmed the existence of the Motorola Moto X Phone, which it will be launching in October.

Motorola Mobility CEO Dennis Woodside said at D11 that the newly announced Moto X phone will be assembled mostly in the U.S. The Moto X is the company's long-rumoured Android smartphone designed as the first device to be launched under Google's ownership of the company.

According to a release from Motorola. The Moto X will be built in a factory in Fort Worth, Texas, the plant is about 500,000 square feet and will employ about 2,000 people in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Woodside said that the Moto X will be a 'made in America' device, with production of the handset to take place in Texas. While the audience responded well to Woodside's plan, it remains to be seen if the company is planning to produce all Moto X models in its Texas facility or just those to be sold in the US with international variants to be produced closer to their target markets.
