Motorola’s Dennis Woodside revealed Motorola's new flagship handset at D11 today and it sure does sound like quite a piece of technology. The new flagship will be called Moto X (previously rumored as the X Phone), and it will be built in a Fort Worth, Texas factory that was once used by Nokia to make phones. For what it's worth 70% of the actual assembly happens in the US with processors from Taiwan and OLED screens from Korea rounding out the final assembly. Woodside isn't giving away many details at this stage, but he did tease that he had one in his pocket and that the smartphone will be 'contextually aware' essentially "knowing what you want to do before you do." Some other nuggets he dropped revealed that the Moto X will "broadly distributed" across numerous carriers, and that "the support of the carriers has been fantastic."
Woodside did touch on the issue of battery life and his response was very interesting, he said : "I'll save the details for later, but the industry issue of battery life is a huge problem. Motorola has some of the world's best engineers and systems designers who spend their lives on that problem. There are two processors in the device that creates a system that allows you to do such a thing." Yes, he just said two processors. As of this writing the rumored time frame for release is October 2013. There you have it folks! The Moto X is shaping up to be one fantastic piece of technology.
UPDATE: According to Motorola's press release, which conflicts with CEO Dennis Woodside's interview, the Moto X will launch this summer.
