Motorola Atrix 2 surfaces

Up and downgraded
Wed Sep 21 2011, 16:34

PICTURES AND SPECS have appeared of Motorola's Atrix 2 smartphone and it seems not much has changed.

The sequel to the Atrix doesn't look all that different from the original and from the front it looks almost identical, apart from the ear piece. The rear shows that it has an upgraded 8MP camera, compared to its predecessor's 5MP device.

A strange observation we have made is that the fingerprint scanner, which Motorola claimed was the world's first on a smartphone, is gone. The device is still running Android, which this time is Android 2.3.5.

The model number says 'MB865' but other than being called the Atrix 2 the phone has the codename 'Edison', according to BGR. Hardware specifications data is very limited but we assume that the processor will be faster than the 1GHz chip found on the original Atrix.

We expect that the update to the firm's flagship handset will be compatible with the existing Atrix accessories such as the Lapdock. µ
