Next Motorola phone is called the Moto X and will not be made in China

At D11, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has just confirmed that the company is  working on a flagship phone, and that will be called the Moto X. The phone will not be made in China like its predecessors, it will be made in the US, it will have an OLED screen.

“We know when it’s in your pocket, we know when it’s in your hand, it’s going to know when you want to take a picture and fire up the cameras. It’ll know when you’re in the car, for instance, and promotes different interactions.”

— Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside

It will be built in a Fort Worth, Texas factory that was once used to make Nokia phones. Woodside isn’t giving away many details at this stage. Some components will come from the US, too, though portions will come from Taiwan, Korea, and elsewhere. The phone is explicitly designed to compete with the iPhone and the Galaxy lineup, though Woodside did say that one of of the areas Motorola sees as promising is in high-quality, low-cost devices. Motorola has also  issued a press release touting the Moto X.
