What can you expect from the new device? You’re still looking at a dual-core 1Ghz processor, although NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 has been switched out in favour of Texas Instruments OMAP 4. Camera resolution has also been upgraded, going from 5 to 8 megapixels, and it’s also capable of shooting 1080p video, up from 720p.
Screen size has been bumped from 4.0” to 4.3”, resulting in a slightly wider and taller body, that also appears to be thinner than the original Atrix. The screen resolution remains unchanged at 960×540, but Motorola have done away with the PenTile matrix display that resulted in pixelated text on the original device. There’s also a subtle redesign, with the Atrix 2 opting for more rounded corners and curvier casing.
Finally, the device is running Android 2.3.5, with Motorola’s skin said to be lightweight and unobtrusive, a welcome change from their older devices. There wasn’t any mention of a release date, but the software is said to be stable and ready for release, so you can expect to see the Atrix 2 sooner rather than later.
