Sprint announces Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE
Sprint has just announced a spanking new smartphone for the masses which will take advantage of Sprint’s LTE network – and we are talking about the Sprint Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE here. The Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE will continue where last summer’s popular Motorola Photon 4G left off, and this new device will boast of a new five-row, PC-like QWERTY keyboard for easy typing. Not only that, it comes with international capabilities as well as a rather generous 4.3-inch ColorBoost display for your eyes to enjoy. Of course, we are not complaining that it is able to operate on Sprint’s new lightning-fast 4G LTE network, too.
There is no specific word on pricing and availability for the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE as at press time, but we do know that it will be announced within the coming few weeks.
What are some of the hardware specifications in the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE? For starters, it does not matter if you are a fan of the touchscreen virtual keyboard or a physical one, the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE will deliver the best of both worlds with its virtual keyboard enabling you to send quick texts in a jiffy, while those who prefer a more physical approach will be able to rely on a slide out PC-like QWERTY keyboard that paves the way for double-thumb efficiency. Each individual laser-cut key will be outlined in LED lights, enabling users to view what they are doing, even in the dark.
It boasts of a dedicated number row that paves the way for maximum typing efficiency and accuracy. As mentioned earlier, thanks to an impressive 4.3″ ColorBoost display, the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE is one that delivers the largest screen which is currently available on a 4G LTE QWERTY smartphone market. Apart from that, all that visual space makes it a snap for you to browse the Internet thanks to Google Chrome without the need to enlarge text, and you can also check out detail-rich images without the need to zoom in, in addition to watching a show without having to strain your eyes. The display itself is made out of scratch-resistant glass and splash-guard coating, enabling the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE to be able to resist everyday scratches and spills.
It will run on the Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, in addition to a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera located right at the back which does Full HD video recording as well, and a front-facing HD camera to boot for easy Google+ Hangout video chats or conference calls. It does sound like one of the more notable smartphones to look out for in the coming weeks.
