The Motorola WX445 was first heard of in a Verizon roadmap a few months back. A later leak revealed the phone to be a low-end Android handset running around under the name Citrus. While the Motorola WX445 Citrus was absent from a leaked list of future Android phones for Verizon that popped up yesterday, the handset didn’t want to be left out of the big reveals. Some new specs have surfaced along with a new name for the handset: the Motorola Ciena.

The Ciena will feature a 3-inch QVGA screen at 240×320 pixels, a 528MHz Qualcomm chipset, 256MB of RAM with 512MB of ROM, and a 3MP camera with no autofocus or flash. The back of the phone will feature the BackTrack trackpad, which first appeared on the much maligned Motorola BackFlip.

And if all of that didn’t get you too hot for the handset, don’t worry. Verizon seems to be unsure about it as well. While original leaks pegged this one for a now-missed September release, word is the device is being reconsidered by Big Red. It may never even see the light of day.
