Motorola Mobility was sold for $12.5 billion to search engine giant, Google. However, after the acquisition, Motorola has faced losses of more than $270 million in the first quarter of this year and it is still not clear as to what Google and Motorola are planning to fix the problem. During an interview, the CEO of Motorola Dennis Woodside threw some light on the future plans of Motorola.
During the D: All Things Digital event that was held on Wednesday, Woodside addressed all the concerns. First of all, Woodside confirmed that they will be launching the Moto X smartphone by October. The Moto X has been one of the most rumored smartphones of this year. Woodside claimed he plans to completely revamp the product line. Motorola plans to launch a couple of new smartphones.
Woodside was in fact carrying the Moto X in his pocket. However, he did not bother taking out the phone and showing it to the world. However, he said that Moto X is capable of snapping photos as soon as it is taken out of the pocket. He also added that the Moto X would act differently while driving 60 miles an hour. It shows that the phone is able to sense its surroundings. However, such a phone can also eat up a lot of battery life. To answer that Woodside added that there are two CPUs onboard that will let you do those things without impacting the battery life.
The manufacturing process of Moto X will be done in US at Fort Worth in Texas which has nearly 2000 employees on board. All the leading carriers of US are quite excited about the new phone from Motorola. Google has helped Motorola with financing and legal issues. When it comes to Android, Motorola is being treated as just another mobile phone company.
Motorola is also working on an electronic wearable tattoo which can be used for authentication. They are also working on a pill which will contain a small chip and battery that will turn the entire body into an authentication body. Woodside considers Motorola as an underdog because it is powered by Google, technology innovation running in its roots and they have some of the most experienced engineers from Google, Apple and Samsung.
If we go by what Woodside claimed at the event, it is for sure that Motorola has got several powerful handsets to be unveiled. The Moto X is the first one in line. The tech world is now eagerly waiting for Motorola to make official announcement on the features and specifications of Moto X. We hope that Moto X slots Motorola as a very competitive brand among giants like Samsung and Apple.
