Almost a year ago, there were rumors that Motorola was working on a pair of smartphones powered by Tegra 3. Our friend Kellen of Droid-Life reported these were codenamed Bullet and Jet. Since then no information has leaked and we thought the projects were dead, but now details have appeared of a device claiming to be the Motorola Atrix 3.
Italian site HDblog is reporting that Chinese site Tianjin shared the first picture and specs of the Atrix 3. Some are already saying this is just a concept phone, so don’t get your hopes up yet. However, the timing and purported specs are at least believable.
Rumored specs of the Atrix 3 include:
- Android 4.0
- Quad-core Tegra 3 processor
- 4.3 inch 1280 x 720 display
- 10 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash
- 2 GB RAM
- 3,300 mAh battery
Motorola has recently been sourcing their application processors from Texas Instruments, but they have partnered with NVIDIA in the past. The original Motorola Atrix was powered by Tegra 2, along with the Motorola Xoom tablet.
Mobile World Congress 2012 is shaping up to become the quad-core phone show, so we wouldn’t be terribly surprised if this device actually makes an appearance. We were expected to see Motorola’s first Android phone with an Intel processor, but it’s possible we could see multiple devices.
With 2 GB RAM and a 3,300 mAh battery, the Atrix 3 would instantly become one of the most anticipated Android phones.
