Motorola says they now assemble over 400,000 Moto X phones each month. The Moto X's display is a 4.7" 720p (316 ppi) AMOLED panel made by Samsung.

While these numbers aren't very high compared to Samsung's own sales (for example they made about 10 million GS4 phones a month when they launched) it is still good news for Motorola and their US factory (which is somewhat depressing still if you check the image above).

Other features of the Moto X, Motorola's first phone to was designed after Google's acquisition, are a 1.7Ghz dual-core CPU, quad-core GPU, two dedicated processors (for language interpretation and contextual sensors computing), 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB flash memory and a 10-mp camera. Motorola offers custuomers to customize their phone. The Moto X is now available in the US for $179 with a contract or $629 without.



That picture is depressing and surprising at the same many persons do they need for this assembly? I would have thought that the process would be largely automated, especially if they produce in the US.
