Sprint first released the Motorola Photon 4G back in August of last year. It was a pretty high powered device last year with its NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual Core processor, its 8 megapixel camera, and running on Springs 4G WiMax network. We first hear rumors of a successor to the Motorola Photon 4G back in April and have yet to hear much since. Today, we are one step closer to finding out more info about the Motorola Photon Q LTE as it has hit the FCC with model number XT897.
Unfortunately, all we really found out about the device was that it has built in NFC support, LTE 25, and EVDO. This is good news nonetheless as it means that the device is relatively close to being released or revealed in the near future.I expect a direct competitor for the Samsung Galaxy S3 with this device. As a high-end device, it will most likely support 4G LTE networks, which also means that the Snapdragon S4 dual-core chip may be the likely candidate for this phone, just like the Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X.
A HD screen is certain, along with Android ICS — although there is a remote possibility of it having Jellybean as well. In the back, a 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording although the megapixel count could change we just know that it will be a high quality camera. We will keep you updated on the Motorola Photon Q LTE as more info becomes available.
