Motorola Moto X announcement set for August 1st with "No Stage. No Crowds."
We finally have an official date for the announcement of the hotly expected Motorola Moto X. Motorola has sent out press invites for a private event that will be held in New York City on August 1st. But, here's the interesting bit: this won't be a big public spectacle like we've seen for Samsung, Apple, and even Google Nexus device announcements. Instead, Motorola is promising "No Stage. No Crowds.".

Motorola will be holding five separate sessions for press on August 1st, and the news will be released from embargo to the public at 3PM. We'll definitely be there, and we'll have all the info for you as soon as we're allowed to share it.

I'm excited, will most likely be getting this when it comes out. I hate my S4. The white one looks very appealing.

I wonder if the MAXX battery will be an option

probably. it'll need a lot of power for the always on mode. that'll probably be a very Motorola specific advantage.

The black version doesn't look all that great to be honest. The white one that Eric Schmidt was caught with looked a lot better than the leaked black versions.

mmm, i'll have to take better looks at them.

the black presser looks pretty damn good actually. o: i'll probably get black with a different color spine.

The press render does look nice, a lot better than the earlier leaked pics like this; http://www.phonearena.com/news/Fully-assembled-Motorola-Moto-X-leaks-all-black_id45184 If I were to get the Moto X, I would probably get the black version with a metal or Kevlar back plate and a white spine. Or maybe white with a gray spine? I hope Motorola gives us a lot of choice with this

Thats the international dual-SIM variant that will be released later and only in international markets. I've pointed that out many, many times in the comments. Droid-Life was the only website that actually listed to me. PA just kept on churning the incorrect rumors.

Ok? That doesn't change the fact that it doesn't look good.

oh yessss! this is the event i'm excited about! i got me a little $180 Razr M today for me to use tempoarily (it was brand new too, like still in the plastic and everything) so i can give the Note II to my dad. when i get something else though i'll give this Razr M to my gf. i may decide to do the Edge program but i'm still thinking about it.

You know moto is the only company going backwards they take forever making new phones everyones going quad but they sport duallies.. This new phone is only a fraction faster than the moto droid MAXX HD which sport a 1.5ghz dual core. I do admit build quality is there great antenna on my photon but man your making me go to HTC which is another great phone for build quality and better antenna like moto.. Not impressed

Exactly, they should put a quad core at least. i'm really excited about the moto x but the ultra is going to be a step behind the competition.

well, true that its running a dual core, but according to another post, they went with the dual core because its optimize for clear pixel. i personally dont mind, since my nexus running dual core feels slicker than my htc one

The Moto X is a LOT faster than the Maxx HD. Not because of the higher clocked CPU, but because the Adreno 320 is the best GPU on a phone today, and can only be replaced by the Adreno 330 in the Snapdragon 800. CPU power has become negligible now in daily performance. All we need are powerful GPUs to support intensive mobile gaming on high resolution displays because any current processor, dual or quad core, can handle anything we throw at them with a proper GPU. Also, this isn't even Motorola's flagship. The Droid Ultra is rumored to have a Snapdragon 800, which will undoubtedly be the most powerful SoC to be released this year along with the new Exynos 5 Octa that will be announced soon.

I'm very excited for the X phone. Love the fact that you can customize your own phone luster it's made in America not China. Will buy one when it launches. And I'll choose either fire red or a orange color.

7. HASHTAG unregistered

Well it's not made in America either.

Are you referring to the Moto X? Because it is made in America. That's one of the "big hooks" of the Moto X.

11. HASHTAG unregistered

It's assembled in America, not made. Two different meanings.

Dude... What kind of bullsh!t are you talking about? I can refer you to a dozen sites that state the phone is "MADE IN AMERICA". And fyi... "If something is "made" somewhere or "assembled", it's the same thing.

17. 8logic

Posts: 154; Member since: Mar 05, 2012

hes right, in that the internal parts are probably made over sea since we don't have the plants here at the "moment"; but any part or assembly here in the us is a big help!

22. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

ok Assemble in America not MADE IN AMERICA.

Motorola Mobility Motorola Motorola Mobility 18 Jul Yep. This guy is building exactly what you think he is. Designed by you. Assembled in the USA. pic.twitter.com/U9fhJRDmmM So you mean to tell me that this picture Tweeted by @Motorola of a guy in their Texas facility BUILDING the Moto X is not in America?

Motorola's official statements say "assembled in the USA." Assembled and made are two different things. The parts of the device can be made over seas, be shipped to the USA, and be assembled there.

That's better than "designed in California" used by Apple, at least it is assembled in the us, and find me another manufacturer who can say the same. Keep in mind that assembling is the only thing they can do, since the components are manufactured in Asia and US does not have the factories to build those high tech components anymore, so they have no chance. They did what they could, and it's still better than what the others do.
