SouthernLINC Wireless to receive low-end Motorola XT626


Regional service provider SouthernLINC Wireless looks to add a new entry-leve Android handset from Motorola this fall. Named only by its model number, the Motorola XT626 will hit the carrier’s shelves in November. The XT626 has been previously released in South Korea as the Double V, where it featured dual-mode iDEN and 3G support. The push-to-talk features look to carry over to SouthernLINC.

Documents provided to us by a tipster suggest the phone will be marketed as a followup to the Motorola Titanium that SouthernLINC currently hosts on its network. The handset features a 4.3-inch display, 8MP camera, and 1.2GHz processor. It does ship with Android Gingerbread on board, and any plans for an update to ICS or Jelly Bean are uncertain at this time. No word on pricing, but if pricing on the Titanium is any indication the XT626 could go for as low as $69.99.

  1. Low end? Hell, those specs are on par with the iPhone 5, sans the whole “Gingerbread” thing.

    1. I agree that “low end” seems a little harsh given it’s 4.3-inch screen, 8MP camera, and 1.2 GHz processor isn’t bad. Kevin pointed out that it’s running Gingerbread and is single core and he has a point, but I’d still say mid-range. And running on SouthernLINC who knows where it falls in the spectrum.

      1. Nope the single core is the main reason its a low end device. if they put in a s4 processor and bumped up the price, then it would be mid range. The “range” is determined by its price

    2. It’s certainly high-end compared to Motorola’s previous iDEN Android phones!

  2. looks like the Photon
