Not too long ago, mobile phone maker Motorola was rumored to plan the release of a new series of devices on the networks of AT&T and Verizon in the United States, and new details on the matter have emerged.
There was a certain device codenamed “Dinara” included among the rumored handsets
for these carriers, and that very phone has allegedly emerged online.
The smartphone is expected to hit shelves as Motorola ATRIX 3, and will be launched on AT&T’s network with the latest flavor of Google’s mobile operating system, namely Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
As The Verge
points out, “Dinara” was launched in China in late 2011, with pretty decent hardware specifications.
However, we might expect for Motorola to bump up the specs list of this mobile phone to make it fit for the demand in the United States.
The phone could be released with a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm S4 dual-core processor, a 4-3 or 4-5-inch screen, a high-quality camera on the back (some suggest it might be 13MP), and a front camera for making video calls.
Featuring an HD touchscreen display, the smartphone should arrive on shelves as a great successor for the Motorola ATRIX 2, which landed at AT&T last year too.
It seems that the actual arrival date for the phone
is drawing near, and that AT&T might have it available for purchase on or around July 26th this year.
Moreover, the carrier is expected to make the handset available at a price tag similar with the one featured by ATRIX 2, namely around $99 at launch.
If so, users will be able to grab another appealing yet affordable handset on the carrier’s network, in addition to flagship smartphones such as the Galaxy S III.
If rumors were to be believed, ATRIX 3 will be released with support for the wireless carrier’s 4G LTE network as well. Moreover, the handset should pack Motorola’s own interface on top of Google’s Android platform.
