Motorola has confirmed that it is working on a new flagship phone that will be availabe before October. Dubbed the Moto X, the news was broken by Dennis Woodside, the company's CEO, at the D11 conference held by The Wall Street Journal in California. The new phone will sport an OLED screen, as well as a bevy of sensors.
"Motorola has always been good at managing power on the device, but we're really good at managing sensors. 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," explained Woodside. "The device will know when you're in the car and it's moving at 60mph and you'll interact with it differently, more safely."
The move, which follows Apple's announcement earlier in the year that it too would be making devices in the US, will start a return to form for Motorola. It expects to refresh its entire line-up of phones. Although Woodside didn't gave any further details but he said that he had one in his pocket. The Moto X is the first major product announcement from Motorola since Google bought the company.
