Motorola Asanti, Vanquish Tipped for AT&T, Verizon
We’ve gotten a bit of information on some upcoming Motorola devices, including a pair of LTE-capable, Ice Cream Sandwich-powered handsets for Verizon and AT&T. First is the Motorola Vanquish, which will be sold worldwide, and which has already been spotted in some EXIF data going by the name Droid RAZR HD for Verizon. As its name suggests, this will be the first high definition model in the Droid range, sporting a 1280 x 720 pixel display. Vanquish is coming to Verizon under model number XT926, to China as XT922 and XT980, and globally as the XT923 (UMTS) and XT925 (LTE).
Next is the Motorola Asanti, tipped for AT&T’s LTE network as the XT898 (and elsewhere as the XT897 and XT896). Supposedly equipped with a QWERTY keyboard and qHD display (960 x 540), the LTE-capable Asanti sounds a lot like Verizon’s Droid 4 — it could well be a GSM rebrand a la the Milestone series of phones. Asanti would be joining another upcoming, keyboard-less LTE handset from Moto on AT&T, the Motorola Dinara MB886.
Finally we have a few unknowns: Motorola Primus XT621 and Motorola Yangtze XT881/XT885/XT886/XT889/MT887. The last of these Yangtze variants was just introduced in China as the Motorola RAZR V, but with so many different SKUs, this will likely be an international release as well. Also on the Motorola LTE horizon is Sprint’s Photon Q 4G LTE, sequel to last year’s Photon 4G.
