Mobile phone maker Motorola is getting ready for the release of a new slew of Android-powered smartphones, the latest reports on the web suggest.
We already learned that the company was preparing a new DROID handset for Verizon’s network, yet that is said to have been only the tip of the iceberg. A handful of other devices are also on their way to shelves through other carriers in the US and elsewhere.
Verizon’s model is expected to hit shelves as the Motorola DROID RAZR HD
, and it is now said to be known internally as Vanquish, a recent article
on Pocketnow reads.
The handset will pack a large screen capable of delivering a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, and it is set to land at Verizon with model number XT926 attached to it.
Moreover, it appears that Motorola also plans its release in China as models XT922 and XT980, as well as in other markets around the world, where it will feature models XT923 (UMTS) and XT925 (LTE).
AT&T will also receive a new LTE-capable smartphone from Motorola, the Asanti, rumored to sport the model number XT898 and expected to land in other countries as the XT897 and XT896.
The handset packs a QWERTY keyboard and a qHD display (960 x 540), and it should be accompanied by another LTE model from Motorola, without keyboard this time, namely the Dinara MB886.
In addition to these smartphones, Motorola
is also said to aim at the release of a new Sprint smartphone, the Photon Q 4G LTE, successor for the already popular Photon 4G that landed last year.
Two other handsets should make their way to shelves from Motorola’s labs soon, namely the Motorola Primus XT621 and the Motorola Yangtze.
There are few details available on these, yet Pocketnow notes that Yangtze was unveiled in China recently as Motorola RAZR V with model number MT887 attached, but that there are also XT881 / XT885 / XT886 / XT889 SKUs, which will arrive on shelves globally.
