Motorola have been rumored to be working on a new smartphone with the codename Edison, that is set to replace the Atrix 4G. The guys at The Verge managed to get some hands time on with the Atrix 2 before the phone has been officially announced.
The Motorola Atrix 2 is taller and thinner than its predecessor. It’s sporting a 4.3-inch qHD LCD which is the same as the Atrix, however they have done away with the PenTile matrix layout and have opted for the much more popular RGB layout.
It has a 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor with PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, 1GB RAM and 8GB of onboard memory. It also has a 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p video capture and single LED flash and a 1735mAh battery which is the same as the Droid Bionic. Other features include a microSD card slot, HDMI port and micro USB.
During the hands on time it was only working on the AT&T HSPA+ network, however we’d be expecting it to support atleast 4G if not LTE. It was running the latest version of Google’s OS; Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread alongside a lightweight version of the Motorola Blur skin.
There is still no word on when it will be release on the AT&T network or what price it will go on sale for. For now you can enjoy these pictures of the device.
