Motorola has officially lifted the lid on its successor to the former “most powerful smartphone in the world”. Yep, it’s the Motorola Atrix 2.
Today was the day we were supposed to meet Ice Cream Sandwich and the Samsung-developed Google Nexus Prime, but the Motorola Atrix 2 is a pretty decent consolation prize.
Amusingly, the press release suggests that the Motorola Atrix 2 combines “extreme power” with “life of the party.” The former we get, given the dual-core processor, but we’re not entirely sure what Motorola means by the latter.
Specs? The Motorola Atrix 2 has a 4.3in qHD display with an impressive 960x540 resolution. Hey, that’s the same resolution and screen size as the HTC Sensation XE.
In terms of memory, we’ve got 8GB ROM, 1GB RAM, and a 2GB microSD card (expandable to 32GB, natch).
Over in camera town, we’ve got an 8MP rear snapper, a front-facing camera, and 1080p video capture with 30fps playback. Gingerbread (Android 2.3) will perform the OS honours.
No word on a UK release just yet. Let’s hope Moto forsakes the traditional transatlantic delay in favour of some rapid Atrix 2 lovin’.
