Last year, the name Motorola Dinara seemed like it was popping-up all over the place. After we first heard the name in the summer of 2011, we learned of Motorola’s plans to release the handset in China as the XT928 in late fall. It seemed like the phone would eventually make it to AT&T in the US as the MB886, but we haven’t yet seen that happen. Now it looks like the phone may finally nearly be ready for its US debut, upon the discovery of a render of the Dinara with AT&T badging.
This isn’t quite the XT928 we saw last year; while we haven’t heard much about the hardware layout of this AT&T Dinara, it very well could be what’s essentially the XT928 underneath, but it’s clear that some big external changes have been made. For starters, this phone is a full-on ICS device, dropping its capacitive Android buttons. We can also see that the front-facing camera’s been repositioned, and there may even be more changes that this image doesn’t reveal. For the moment, the only hardware specs confirmed are a 720p display and an LTE modem; if we’re looking at the same XT928 components, we can also expect a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, gigabyte of RAM, and a 13-megapixel main camera.
The leak of this render isn’t accompanied by any rumors on just when AT&T and Motorola might make the phone available, but that July 26 date displayed by the clock widget might be a gentle hint. As for how it might arrive on the carrier, the Atrix 3 has been suggested as one possible model name.
