A new Motorola Android smartphone has been uncovered which looks to be a mid-range smartphone – so what do we know ?
Google acquired Motorola in 2011 and the first smartphone to come via the acquisition was rumoured to be the Motorola X Phone. This now seems doubtful, as a new mystery Motorola smartphone has appeared on Vietnamese website tinhte.vn.
In translating the Vietnamese article, the author states that the smartphone pictured above and shown in the video below is not the Motorola X but is a new smartphone. The only solid information to be gleaned from the translation is that the smartphone is badged as Xt912A.
In looking closely at the photos on tinhte.vn we spot that the mystery Motorola smartphone is stamped as "Motorola Commercial Property" which normally means it is a loan handset supplied for testing purposes sometimes given software developers and mobile operators etc. We also note that the smartphone is badged as "Viettel" which is a Vietnamese mobile operator, so this is without doubt a real smartphone which may or may not come to Europe.
Some further details can be added into the mix such as a new Motorola Logo / badge on the smartphone in the form of a trendy “M” while the smartphone itself has more elegant rounded edges and curves, which as you may expect, looks a bit like the Google Nexus 4. The Android operating system can clearly be seen in the video and has some form of top level Motorola OS on top of that.
The video of the “mystery Motorola smartphone” badged only as the Xt912A can be viewed below and as soon as 3G hear more we will post it here.
