PHOTON Q Front Hero MarketingIt looks like we can now finally confirm the existence of the Motorola Photon Q. After being touted by Sprint CEO Dan Hesse at the company’s Q2 earnings call this morning , Sprint is finally making it official. Sprint said that the Motorola Photon Q, a spin-off of the Motorola Photon 4G, will boast a five-row, PC-like QWERTY keyboard and a 4.3-inch ColorBoost display, as well as the ability to operate on Sprint’s 4G LTE network. Additional key features will include a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, an HD front-facing camera, and NFC support. The Motorola Photon Q will arrive running Android 4.0 a.k.a. Ice Cream Sandwich.

“Motorola Photon Q will be the first 4G LTE device with a QWERTY keyboard and world phone capabilities to join the Sprint line-up,” said David Owens, Vice President of Product Development at Sprint. “We want to make sure our 4G LTE handset portfolio has the full complement of choices for our customers. Adding a product with both a physical keyboard and world mode makes this a great addition to the Sprint family of devices.” The pricing and availability of the Motorola Photon Q will be announced within the next few weeks.
