Google's Motorola upcoming "Moto X" Smartphone | Made in USA | Moto X Will Launch by October

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.

Google preparing to launch X phone And X Tablet Next year

Google Inc is working with recently acquired Motorola on a handset codenamed "X-phone", aimed at grabbing market share from Apple Inc and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, the Wall Street Journal said, citing people familiar with the matter. The devices are said to be separate from the Droid line of products, which leads us to believe they could be sold under the Nexus brand.

Google acquired Motorola in May for $12.5 billion to bolster its patent portfolio as its Android mobile operating system competes with rivals such as Apple and Samsung.

The Journal quoted the people saying that Motorola is working on two fronts: devices that will be sold by carrier partner Verizon Wireless, and on the X phone.

A person familiar with the plans said Motorola plans to enhance the X Phone with its recent acquisition of Viewdle, an imaging and gesture-recognition software developer. This person said obstacles are a “normal” part of the research-and-development process. Despite the challenges, the new handset is due out sometime next year.
