Motorola Atrix 2 in the wild; images, details leaked

atrix 2

The Motorola Atrix 4G is among the best high-end phones AT&T has to offer. Its early adoption of the Tegra 2 processor definitely helped. But like all other devices, this one has its defects–many of which you’ve been pointing out. Whether you hate it or love it, its popularity will make a great successor. And it seems that device is out there.

BGR has obtained 4 images of what seems to be the Motorola Atrix 2 (or Motorola Edison). And, boy, is this little brother looking better. This device has a much sleeker look; it’s shinier and more aesthetically pleasing overall. The device does seem to be mainly plastic, though, so we can expect the feel and weight to be pretty similar to the original Atrix.

Not much is known about the specs yet, but the little information that has leaked is not bad. The only downside is that, according to BGR’s sources, the device will not come with 4G LTE compatibility. If you’re looking to get on AT&T’s brand new LTE network, you’ll have to look elsewhere. HSPA+ only for this device.

According to the sources, the device will launch with a dual-core processor (most likely a Texas Instruments OMAP), Android 2.3.5 (as seen in the images) and an 8 MP camera with 1080p HD video recording.

Not too shabby, but it also seems it won’t be a huge jump from the Motorola Atrix 4G. Hopefully Motorola and AT&T have other specs to surprise us, especially with a beast like the Samsung Galaxy S II just around the corner.

Stay tuned for more details in the near future. In the meanwhile, check out the images below and let the speculation begin. What else do you guys think comes with this bad boy? When do you think it will be launching?

Side Note

Is it just us, or might this be the device that showed up a few days ago in another leaked image? Not that most devices don’t look the same, but we believe the Atrix 2 might have been the device hanging out in the background.

The form factor looks very similar. Once again, though, most Android devices do look similar, but there are white letters placed in the same place where the new images show “AT&T.” The word seems to be about the same length, too. What do you guys think?

    Doesn’t seem like that great of an upgrade to me. I’m sure it’ll be a good phone, probably one of the better phones on AT&T, just not that much of a spec bump from the original is all.

    Now if don’t-call-me-blur was replaced with stock, that would be another story. :)

  • Interpol91

    Definitely has a nice appearance compared to other Motorola phones. Though the specs are decent hopefully it does have some other great surprises. Not on my radar though.

  • Nathan

    Most likely a atrix 4g plus or something around those lines

  • JaylanPHNX

    It seems the biggest upgrade on this phone will likely be the software. While stock would be great (especially if it’s ICS in the end), the newest Moto UI is still ten times better than old Blur. Of course a higher screen resolution would be a good bonus, too.

    I currently own the Atrix 4G and I really love this phone. Only downside is the poorly designed GPU (Tegra 2). So far, I have not been able to play any HD videos on the device itself. I spoke with Motorola and they stated that HD playback is only available via HDMI to HDTV for smartphone’s only. Tegra 2 fail.

    The Tegra 2 on my wife’s Asus Transformer has great HD playback on the device.

    I hope the Atrix 2 has a decent GPU.

    This looks decent definately better than the current Atrix 4g on At&t. Honestly now the time has come to look past these dualcore devices and start setting our sites on the quadcore devices that will be headed our way from HTC, SAMSUNG, in 2012. To be specific the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the upcoming Evo brand in 2012 these devices will be packing the best specs any android devices can ask for and I very seriously doubt any device would be better than these two………..This will be powering the next Evo brand in 2012…..

  • Richard Yarrell

    It’s high time that all of the current owners of dualcore devices take the time to enjoy there current devices. Very soon it will be time to move past these devices keeping our eye on the upcoming quadcore devices heading our way in early 2012. Leading our way in 2012 will be HTC and SAMSUNG and there is so much to look forward too..…..
