We must be approaching the release date for the Motorola Atrix 2, as it has appeared online again, this time in some rather official looking press shots.
Thisismynext scored the press shots of the Atrix 2, along with a picture of a redesigned version of the Atrix Lapdock accessory.
The site has also managed to confirm that the official product name will in fact be the Atrix 2, not the Atrix HD or Motorola Edison as previously thought. This smartphone does feature a Full HD 1080p camera and HDMI socket, though.
As we reported previously, the Atrix 2 has a 4.3-inch qHD resolution touchscreen and an unknown processor, which many are expecting to be an OMAP 4 chip produced by Texas Instruments running at around 1.2GHz. Other rumoured specifications include 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, while we know for certain that there is an 8-megapixel camera on the back that is capable of shooting Full HD 1080p video. There’s also a 2-megapixel camera on the front of the phone for video calling.
Motorola have redesigned the rather cool ‘lapdock’ accessory that could be bought with the original Atrix, transforming it into a customised Android netbook with a full QWERTY keyboard. The design of the ‘Lapdock 100’ for the Atrix 2 looks to be slightly chunkier than its predecessor, and is this time finished in a shiny silver rather than black, as with the previous model.
The Lapdock 100 is also smaller and more portable, with a 10.1” screen rather than the 11.6” LCD panel used on the original. Motorola are said to have jammed a bigger battery in as well, making the Lapdock 100 last much longer as well as being more portable.
From the pictures of the phone we can clearly see the AT&T name at the top of the screen, along with the AT&T logo on an app icon. We’re pretty certain the U.S mobile network will be exclusively launching this phone at first, with other networks getting on board later on.
