Motorola has been awfully quiet on the smartphone front lately, but this is clearly set to change soon enough. Aside from the 4.6-inch Droid Fighter, that should be the company’s flagship in 2012, the US-based technology manufacturer will most likely come with a couple of more affordable gadgets as well.
The MT680 and XT760 have just appeared in leaked images on the Internet and, even though there isn’t much we can make from the blurry pics, we pretty much have these guys’ tech specs jotted down according to rumors.
The first of the duo, codenamed MT680, should come with a WVGA TFT LCD screen with a 480 x 800 pixels resolution screen and a Marvell processor (either a dual-core 1 GHz or a single-core 1.5 GHz). Other known features include a 5 MP rear-facing camera, HSDPA and HSUPA support, as well as the running of Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
In terms of design, the MT680 (or whatever the guys at Motorola will end up naming the device) looks very much like the Motoluxe unveiled a while back. Set to weigh in at around 135 grams (4.76 ounces), this little guy will also be pretty sleek, with a 10.3 mm thickness and an all-black classic and elegant look.
The second Motorola smartphone to be leaked today is the XT760, which should be a bit snappier and more powerful than its ‘’cousin’’. With a qHD 960 x 540 pixels resolution TFT LCD screen and a 1 GHz dual-core ST-Ericsson chipset, this little guy will certainly be a device to watch for mid-range gadget lovers.
The XT760 is set to feature a top of the notch 8 MP rear-facing camera with auto focus and will come with a very slim profile (125 grams weight and 9.88 mm ”waist”), but unfortunately this too will only run Android 2.3 Gingerbread upon its release.
And talking about release, we of course know nothing of when this Motorola duo will see the light of day and where it will be made available, but something tells us that both gadgets will hit China first and, depending on their success there, they will come or not to the US and European markets.
