Motorola Atrix HD Announced with ICS, 1.5GHz Snapdragon (Video)


The original Motorola Atrix 4G proved to be a rather interesting smartphone, thanks largely to the Lapdock and HD Multimedia Dock accessories, and now it’s getting its official successor. The Motorola Atrix HD has been formally announced, complete with a spec sheet that includes Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. There’s also a speedy 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor in there, which we assume is the same S4 making its way onto a myriad of other devices.

Slated for availability through AT&T, the Motorola Atrix HD features a 4.5-inch HD ColorBoost 720p LCD (330ppi) display, 1780mAh battery, HSPA+, 4G LTE, stereo Bluetooth, 8MP rear-facing autofocus camera, 720p HD front-facing webcam, 1080p HD capture and playback, microSD expansion, and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi.

The overall design is still in line with other Motorola smartphones, including the carbon fiber-like backplate and the gently rounded corners. This is the first phone to use Motorola’s new “Circle Widget” on the home screen, giving you quick access to weather, battery, and your AT&T account. Expect to see the Motorola Atrix HD sell for $99.99 on contract when it hits AT&T on July 15.
