The Motorola X Phone remains a mystery, and for now only a select few at Motorola Mobility and Google have seen the supposed super high-end Android device. This week, however, the Internet got in hands on what looks like the pitch work for an upcoming ad campaign. There aren’t any images of the actual handset in the images, but we do get a potential Motorola X release date.
Throughout the pitch work, which center around the tagline, “Goodbye Moto,” the date August 1 appears multiple times, supporting earlier rumors that the new smartphone will launch by the end of the summer. The Motorola ad campaign also includes a potential full-page newspaper ad with the following message:
We’re not good at goodbyes. No one is. They’re hard. And sad. But the time has come. After nearly a century of innovation, we must say farewell. Farewell to the first handheld cell phone. To the Razr. To the game snake. Farewell to the Motorola that has shaped today.
It’s time to start building tomorrow. Change is afoot. New faces. New ideas. New technologies. The Motorola that returns will not be the company you once knew. But we have some work to do. So until we’re ready, we’re going away. No new ads or tweets. No site updates. Just silence until we begin the next chapter.
Until we meet again, goodbye Moto.
So what will happen on August 1st? Will Motorola roll out a new smartphone? Will the company go dark until it can come back with an impressive device? Will Google swallow Motorola Mobility whole? There’s no way to know for now, but stay tuned for an advertising blitz this summer and (hopefully) something big in August.
