We have already had the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One, both of which make up their respective manufacturer’s flagship offering. Other like Apple or LG is expected to join the list sometime soon though the one manufacturer that seems to be missing from the list is Motorola. The company’s X Phone which seems to be the mother of all smartphones has been in the making for long. It has been the subject of many a speculation and rumor though it seems we are finally approaching the final thing.
Also, the confirmation comes from none other than Motorola’s CEO Dennis Woodside who revealed during the recent D11 conference that the X phone will hit streets this summer itself. However, the X Phone will make up a family of devices with more of the variants set for release during the entire fall season.
Also, another interesting aspect about the X Phone is that it will be assembled entirely at the company’s Forth Worth, Texas plant, making it the first smartphone to have ever been manufactured in the US. This does break the usual convention where most manufacturers resort to outsourcing to cheaper manufacturing sites to keep a check on the price. However, Motorola will still be relying on offshore supply of some components such as the chip as well as the display.
These apart, while official specs have been kept under a lid, the company CEO did mention about some of the qualities to look forward to with the device. These include the phone’s ability to make out when the user is driving, walking, running or being taken out from the pocket and so on. Other details are missing though Dennis Woodside is believed to have the X Phone in his pocket when he attended the D11 conference. What this means is that device is almost ready for its market debut.
