After hinting that an announcement would drop any day now during their Q2 earnings call this morning, Sprint has made the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE official. The phone will be the first on Sprint’s LTE network to feature a full 5-row QWERTY keyboard. The phone doesn’t skimp on specs a 4.3-inch ColorBoost display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video support and HD front-facing camera, and NFC support. The Photon will launch with Android 4.0.4.
As the phone’s rather long name suggest, 4G LTE connectivity will be core to the sequel to last year’s Motorola Photon. But the device will also feature world-roaming capabilities on global GSM networks. Pricing and availability will be announced at a later date. In the meantime Sprint is directed interested parties to sprint.com/photonq, a landing page that currently appears inactive. Follow the link below for more details in Sprint’s official press release.
