May 30, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Moto days are here again! Or, so it looks like. The Motorola team is currently working to bring back the former glory of the company by unveiling a new generation smartphone that can challenge Apple’s iPhone and Samsung Galaxy handsets.

During a conversation at the D11 Conference, Dennis Woodside, CEO of Motorola Mobility has confirmed a new mobile device from the company.

Dubbed the Moto X, this expectedly powerful handset would include multiple sensors that would be  integrated with the phone’s hardware. Woodside has described the handset as a HERO phone, as it can compete with other high end handsets in the current market.

According to Woodside, the Moto X will be built in the United States in a 500,000 sq ft factory outside Fort Worth. Yes, that one is the same factory once used to build Nokia phones.

He also added that around 70 percent of manufacturing of Moto X will occur in this facility, while OLED displays and the processors for the device will be coming from Taiwan and Korea.

The Moto X is expected to have a very strong battery life, and a number of sensors to interact with its users. Woodside also said that the handset will be available this summer and would be distributed via multiple carriers.

Though other spec details of Moto X are unavailable, we hope the handset would transform Motorola into a winner in the mobile market.
