Mobile phone maker Motorola is gearing up for the release of a new high-end smartphone running under Google’s Android operating system and included in the ATRIX family.
We’re referring here to the Motorola ATRIX 3 smartphone, which made it online in a set of images over at Blog of Mobile.
The handset appears to resemble a lot the latest Nexus smartphones out there, though it comes from Motorola, and not Samsung.
The outer design also borrows some of the lines that ATRIX 2 owners enjoy on their devices, which should confirm that it will be included in the ATRIX family of devices.
In addition to these images, a series of details on the phone’s hardware also made it online, unveiling the fact that it will be one of the handsets set to hit shelves with a quad-core nVidia Tegra 3 SoC inside.
The first quad-core smartphones packing Nvidia’s application processor will become official before the end of this month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
For the time being, however, no info that Motorola might aim at bringing the ATRIX 3 to the event has emerged.
In addition to the powerful application processor, the new mobile phone is also said to arrive on shelves with a 4.3-inch HD display that can deliver a 720 x 1280 pixels resolution.
The specs list of this device is also rumored to include 2GB of RAM and a 10MP camera on the back. It should arrive on shelves with a 3,300mAh battery (though this sounds a bit too god to be true).
The upcoming mobile phone runs under Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. What has not been mentioned so far is whether it would include Motorola’s own user interface on top of ICS.
One way or the other, it should not be too long before Motorola makes the new phone official, so stay tuned for more on the matter.
