Tag - Dinara
A Motorola handset codenamed Dinara and first spotted last July is now making news again as an image of the phone was sent to The Verge. It's believed to launch at AT&T very soon, and likely be branded as the Atrix 3 and therefore succeed the Atrix 2. As such, it will support AT&T's 4G network.
Motorola might be making a fundamental shift from its loyalty to TI if an inadvertent GLBenchmark test run posting is an indicator. A phone known as the MB886, codenamed Qinara and possibly a reference to the Dinara has shown up using Qualcomm's MSM8960, or the same 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 chip as found in phones like HTC's One S. Motorola has used TI's OMAP and occasionally NVIDIA's Tegra 2 in its Android phones, suggesting a new direction in chip options.
The recently leaked Droid HD smartphone from Motorola may turn out to be the codenamed Motorola Spyder, the Droid-Life team believed after doing some digging. The device, headed to Verizon, is being described as a brother of the Photon 4G. It would have a different screen and a camera with less than the eight megapixels of the Photon 4G.
Motorola already has a sequel to the new Droid Bionic in development that may be hints of a familiar design. Nicknamed the Dinara, it would be similar to the Bionic but have a larger, more edge-to-edge, "HD" screen and upgrade to a 13-megapixel camera. The shape would be "much slimmer and lighter" from what Droid-Life understood, but it would use an iPhone-style sealed-in battery to reach the goal.
