Those Chinese are at it again! This time they’ve managed to snap a few quick pics of this Moto Atrix looking device complete with AT&T branding and the new version of MotoBlur. At a quick glance you would mistake it for a regular ‘ol Atrix but upon closer inspection you’ll notice a few minor tweaks and enhancements.
First thing you may notice is the screen size seems to be slightly larger and I’m going to go ahead and call it 4.3-inches (original Atrix is 4-inches). Also, the device appears to have some kind of contoured glass ala LG’s G2X or Samsung Nexus S. Probably the most notable improvement would be the 8MP camera gracing the back of the device complete with dedicated camera button found along the side of the phone. Oddly enough, the original Atrix fingerprint reader is missing from this device.
Unless this device is packing some kind of quad-core processor I don’t see how this could be a true sequel to the Atrix but then again, it wouldn’t be the first time Motorola has slightly upgraded a device (cough — DroidX2 — cough). I love a good mystery so I’m curious to see what you guys think. Could this be a real Atrix successor or could we be looking at a scrapped Bionic prototype?
**Update: Our readers have mentioned that the device clearly has some kind of print along the top of the glass that reads, “Sony Ericsson V611″ and are dismissing the photo’s as fakes. Not sure why the glass reads that or exactly what it implies. The source of these pics came from some sort of Sony Ericsson blog or forum (can’t read Chinese) so maybe that has something to do with the branding on the phone’s glass. (Shrugs)
If you notice,there is evident Motorola branding throughout the device and also some print along the right side of the glass that reads “Motorola Restricted Property Not For Resale.” Also, some are saying this could be the leaked Motorola HD we found out about a few weeks ago with a 1280×720 (720p) screen. Adding further speculation that maybe Motorola is turning to Sony Ericsson for their displays. The plot thickens…
