Although the smartphone packs 8GB of internal memory, users can further expand storage up to 32GB via microSD card. It is also worth mentioning Motorola
ATRIX 2 will be shipped with a free 2GB microSD memory card in the sales package.
The ATRIX 2 sports a 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen display that supports 540 x 960 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
