Motorola ATRIX 2 Pictures and Specifications Discovered
Hello Moto! It looks as though Motorola are planning to release a sequel to their first Dual-Core smartphone, the Atrix.
BGR has uncovered pictures and information on the Motorola Atrix 2, which is currently going under the codename of the Motorola Edison. Specifications are currently thin on the ground but we’ve got some good pictures of the front, back and software menus.
From the front, the Atrix 2 carries a resemblance to the original Atrix and the Samsung Nexus S all rolled into one. The Menu, Home, Back and Search buttons below the screen appear to be touch-based rather than physical “press buttons”, while a large screen of around 4.2-inches sits above.
On the back of the phone we can clearly see a camera marked “8MP HD 1080p”, so we know from that the Atrix 2 will be capable of 8-megapixel still shots and Full HD 1080p video recording. There’s also a fairly large LED flash sitting next to the camera. On the right hand side of the phone we can make out what appears to be volume up and down keys, and a physical camera button.
One of the snaps shows us the software menu, indicating that the very latest Android Gingerbread 2.3.5 software will be used on this smartphone, and a model number of MB865.
Another shows a screenshot from the “Moto Phone Portal” software which appears to be loaded as standard. It offers both USB and Wi-Fi connectivity to transfer files to and from a PC, just like with Samsung Kies Air. In this screenshot we also see AT&T branding, the same U.S mobile network that originally launched the first Atrix phone.
BGR’s source has advised that the Atrix 2 will feature a Dual-Core processor, most likely a 1.2 or 1.5GHz OMAP chip made by Texas Instruments.
No further information on the Atrix 2 or ‘Edison’ for now, but stay tuned as we’ll bring you the latest developments.
