Motorola mobility is set to launch two new mid-range Android handsets for spring 2012 in Greater China, Europe and Latin America, the Motorola MOTOLUXE and DEFY MINI.
The smartphones are powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform, but they feature slightly different displays. The Motoluxe features a huge 4-inch capacitive touchscreen with 480 x 854 pixels resolution, equipped with an 800 MHz CPU, an Adreno 200 graphics processing unit, 1GB of ROM, 512 MB of RAM, microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB), an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 1,400 mAh battery and a VGA front-facing camera. Motoluxe also offers another interesting feature: a lanyard slot that has a lighting effect, such as you can see when you’ve missed a call, received a text or have an email waiting for you.
The “life proof” DEFY MINI is water resistant, and dust and shock proof. The device also features a 3.2-inch touchscreen that supports 320 x 480 pixels resolution, a 3-megapixel rear camera, powered by a low-performance 600 MHz processor and packs 512MB of ROM, 512MB of RAM, microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB), a 1,650 mAh battery and a VGA front-facing camera.
No word on the handsets’ prices yet, but Motorola confirmed that both would be showcased next week during the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), in Las Vegas. Both devices are slated for February availability in the aforementioned markets.
Once Techsnapr gets news of any operators carrying the device or prices, we’ll let you know.
