Now that the Droid Bionic (which has some issues) is now out in the open it’s time for another handset to start taking the headlines, and we are not talking about the iPhone 5. The phone in question is the Motorola Atrix 2, and looking at the specs there is one big feature missing, LTE. It seems as though AT&T has decided to leave 4G technology out of this release, but you never know what could be lurking around the corner.
The current model has a dual-core processor, but the successor will have either a 1.2 or 1.5GHz chip. This seems the CPU of choice for future Android handsets, as the upgraded Galaxy S II is also said to be getting it. The lack of LTE could be an issue here, as more handsets will start to use the technology, which could have a series affect on the popularity of the Atrix 2.
According to BGR the upcoming handset from Motorola will be running Android 2.3.5, but were unable to give us any sort of release date. However, we do expect the phone maker to share some details with us soon, but for now we will just have to look at the leaked photos and then speculate some of the other features. Having said that, we do suspect that the Atrix will be packing an 8-megapixel camera, which is beginning to be the camera of choice these days.
While looking at the photos the new handset has a speaker hole a little like the one on the Photon 4G, as well as the camera being very much like the Droid Bionic. This is not really surprising, as the two are almost the same handset, well apart from being on different carriers that is. There will be those of you who will say that these photos might not be the real deal, but from what we see they look genuine to us.
