Possible Motorola Atrix Refresh Spotted for AT&T (If It’s Real)

Advertisement

An unknown Motorola Android has been spotted in China, showing off its AT&T branding and a design that’s awfully reminiscent of the Atrix 4G. Could Motorola be planning a hardware refresh for the model, are we looking at an all-new addition to AT&T’s lineup, or is something else going on here?

Despite the basic similarities to the Atrix, there are a few clear differences we can see in these pics. First off, the camera get a bump to eight megapixels, and now claims the ability to record video in 1080p. Along its edge, the position of buttons and ports is slightly off from the Atrix, suggesting possibly larger changes in board layout within, and there’s now what looks like a camera shutter button.

There’s some definite weirdness going on in these photos, though. Could the handset be a fake? While some text along the bezel reads “Motorola restricted property” and “not for sale”, making the images seem legitimate, up top, between the Motorola and AT&T logos, you can make out a shadowy Sony Ericsson logo – not something that makes any sense on this device.

Frankly, we don’t know what to think, but the presence of logos from two manufacturers makes this one sound pretty darn fishy.
