Gone are the upper case letters “MOTOROLA” that have been used for decades. The line “a Google company” now appears underneath the logo. The logo first appeared on the site of Techweek, a technology conference which Motorola is co-sponsoring in Chicago.
There is a new variation of the logo without the colour bands, alternatively in solid purple.
Since its $12.5 billion acquisition by the internet search giant, Motorola has been rather quiet on the mobile front, at least in terms of Android smartphone hardware. At last month’s AllThingsD conference however, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside confirmed that the company is working on a flagship phone, the much-rumoured Moto X.
The smartphone will be proudly designed, engineered and assembled in the US – at its Fort Worth facility in Texas.
Details are scarce but the phone will have an OLED screen, run stock Android and will debut in summer.
What do you think of the new logo?
