The mid-budget Motorola MOTOLUXE has just been released in Canada and is now available for purchase via Bell.
According to the latest hearsay, Bell would offer the MOTOLUXE for $300 CAD on no-term and rumors have just been confirmed.
Customers can also grab the Motorola MOTOLUXE
for free with a new three-year agreement. There are no other pricing offers for the smartphone, so those who wish the get this device are required to choose one of the two available options.
As expected, Motorola MOTOLUXE is powered by Google’s Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread operating system integrated with MotoSwitch UI. Keep in mind that Motorola recently confirmed this device won’t receive an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade.
The phone is equipped with a single-core Qualcomm MSM7227A-0 processor clocked at 800 MHz, which is complemented by an Adreno 200 GPU and 512 MB of RAM.
Bell Canada notes that Motorola MOTOLUXE is “elegantly designed and affordably priced. It features an 8 megapixel camera that lets you take perfect pictures and a stunning 4” edge-to-edge hi-res display. Plus, it comes with a dynamic user interface that learns what you like and adapts to help you do tasks faster
However, the 8-megapixel rear photo snapper does not pack any impressive features, and it only offers autofocus, LED flash and camcorder. There’s also a secondary VGA front-facing camera for self-portraits and video calls.
The 4-inch capacitive touchscreen display supports 480 x 854 pixels resolution. On the inside, the MOTOLUXE
packs 1GB of ROM, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.
In the connectivity front, Motorola MOTOLUXE offers a slew of options, including Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP and EDR, as well as GPS with A-GPS and microUSB port.
The phone’s 1400 mAh Li-Ion battery should provide users with up to 450 hours of standby time (400 hours in 3G mode) or up to 6.5 hours of talk time (4.5 hours in 3G mode). Check it out here
