Moto X event scheduled for August 1st in NYC

by: Andrew GrushJuly 19, 2013


After a nearly endless sea of rumors, leaks and teasers, the Moto X is almost here! Motorola has just announced it will be holding a press event on August 1st in New York City, with the Moto X as the center topic.

As you can see in the press invite, the phone is pictured in both black and white – though the handset is said to be available in a multitude of colors. Not much else can be revealed from the press photo, other than we can clearly see the familiar curved top ridge that we’ve come to associate with this handset.

In a nutshell, the Moto X represents the future of Motorola and its role as a Google company.

So what’s with all the commotion surrounding the Moto X? Hype aside, what really makes the Moto X stand out is that it is the very first Motorola phone to be built directly under Google’s guidance.

Beyond that, rumors suggest that while the specs are likely going to be mid-range, the handset will have several features that help it stand out, such as contextual awareness and special sensors. The Moto X will also be assembled in the United States, which will allow for unique customization options. Even better, Motorola’s flagship handset is expected to arrive on all four major U.S. Carriers roughly around the same time.

In a nutshell, the Moto X represents the future of Motorola and its role as a Google company. What do you think of the Moto X, excited or not?

Either way, be sure to tune in to Android Authority come August 1st, where we will be sure to provide you all the juicy details surrounding the company’s latest flagship.

    Man I am so psyched for this phone. I can’t wait!

    • D’Ander McSullivan

      I hope it doesn’t dissapoint us bro.

        Wasn’t long ago i stayed awake until 3 in the morning waiting for the S4 only to say at the end of it “WHAT THE F… IS THIS SH..?”

        • OMGgary

          Oh man, I hear you on that one! I became a bit worried as soon as I saw all that malarky with the Jeremy kid in the build up to the Galaxy S4 launch. Somewhere in the midst of that sinking pile of cheese was a reasonably okay smartphone, but I just wanted them to stop, more and more with each new part of the “presentation”.
          Fortunately I don’t expect Google or Motorola to go down that road.

            i just keep going back to leo laporte telling his co-host that she will want to return her gpe one after he had a chance to play with the x. i dont think he would say that if they were going to disappoint.

        • D’Ander McSullivan

          Well, to be fair, the S4 is not a bad phone, but still it disappointed a lot of people (me when it was unveiled). That’s what happens when you over-hype this much a product. I really really hope Motorola can handle this.

      • OMGgary

        Me too. It is like the tension is just building and building’and now a “stock” Android floodgate is about to burst this month, between the Moto X and Nexus 7.

        • Luka Mlinar

          If this thing fails i can always fall back on the Nexus 5. But i don’t want this to fail. I really want a good Motorola phone with stock Android. +this thing looks good.

  • Alu Zeros

    Why is Google wasting resources and just mash it into the nexus. It’s the same thing with android and chrome OS.

  • jack

    will it be released in other countries like Australia? Because its sad that many things U can get in America U can’t here in Australia
