Motorola Atrix HD Landing Page Pops Up, Gives Us the Full Spec List

Sooooo, yeah. Motorola apparently thought it was time to post up the Atrix HD in all its glory on their official website. We are a little confused because we can’t recall seeing an actual announcement for the phone, however, the mobile and full landing pages for it are live right now, if you are interested in checking it out.

According to Motorola’s own site, it is definitely headed to AT&T with an LTE radio inside (logo on front), has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP camera, 1.3MP front camera, 4.5″ HD LCD display with ColorBoost, on-screen navigation keys, 1780mAh battery, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, up to 32GB of external storage, is 8.4mm thick, and runs Ice Cream Sandwich.

The model number is listed as MB886. For those not familiar with Motorola’s model number naming scheme, anything in the 900s has been reserved for their top tier line in the past. That doesn’t necessarily mean that this phone is some slouch, being in the 800s and all.

Cheers Antony!

    Well the Atrix was MB860, the Atrix 2 was MB865. The Droid Bionic was the XT875. The Razor series are in the 900’s though…

  • raylalley

    Disappointing, was hoping for much more. Similar specs to Atrix 2 with minor improvements. I have Atrix 4G and after looking, once it is a time for upgrade, it will not be this phone. What happen to the rumored Tegra 3, 13 MP camera, etc. Looks like Samsung is on the tops of next phone shopping list.

  • TomsDisqusted

    Hope it has mini-HDMI for use with Webtop.

    MHL sounded like a good idea but hasn’t really panned out – and Samsung has pretty much destroyed it with the SGS3.

  • Naga Appani

    Booom, They have removed the page…. :P

  • David W. Astor

    Went to the link; Moto took down the device from the page already… Or am I missing something.

  • nightscout13

    It’s the chinese version of the first RAZR. remember that one a year ago? Also, after seeing that people want a bigger battery WHY would they make a slim one again????

  • http://www.facebook.com/joel.gautraud Joel Gautraud

    So, what are we thinking is inside this thing? OMAP 4460?

  • chris125

    So much wasted space on the front that could be used for a larger screen. It’s pretty much just a razr with a hd screen. Good luck with battery life on that when the razr already struggles.

    • Jay

      It’s got a qualcomm chip and their integrated LTE modem-thingy, so it should get better battery life than the OMAP4 with Moto’s separate LTE. Only factore to be determined is how much power that screen will draw.

  • Tyler Maddocks

    Pages are down, it seems.

  • Butters619

    I was really looking forward to this phone, but that battery just pisses me off.

    Guess I will be keeping my One X.

  • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

    Just seems like just about every phone is going to be upstaged by the Galaxy S III for the near future. The good news is that it seems like it’s easier than ever to choose what Android phone to get right now.

    • Knlegend1

      You’re right it is very easy to choose a really good device right now. The crazy thing is that the GS 3 is already out. How hard is it to make a phone better than whats already out on the market? I hope they do better with the Droid Razr HD though. If any of those Chinese variants are in fact the Droid Razr HD, then Motorola has made this all to easy.

  • cancerous_it

    So….Google buying Moto Mobility didn’t solve it’s suckiness. Moto’s lack of execution is just as bad as it was a year ago. Seriously who is the product manager making the same stupid decisions over and over again

    • Paul

      I love you made no actual criticisms of the phone and just voiced generic displeasure.
      If I were on AT&T, I’d have a helluva time choosing between this and the OneX.
      The Samsung is out of the running because I still can’t stand the way the Galaxy SIII looks.

      • dylan84

        Yeah, that’s where I am right now. My upgrade comes in August. Do I wait for this, or just get the One X.

    • BigRed4X15

      what lack of execution? your comment makes no sense. Also Google has owned them for half a second, how could any of their designs be changed in that short of time? Phones are planned and designed for over a year before you see them on the street. The fact is that Motorola make some of the best hardware and in the few places they were lagging (screen and software) they are making huge improvements. I have a RAZR Maxx, and the Moto version of ICS is excellent, and way more stock than any other OEM skin.

  • HTC1

    who cares! it’s on AT&T…………….

  • KleenDroid

    The only thing I want to see announced by Motorola is that they are going to unlock their bootloaders. I really miss working with Motorola phones and there is no reason they couldn’t be great again.

  • jdrch

    Ah Moto … always somehow a day late and a dollar short on specs. Phone hasn’t even dropped yet and it’s already outdated. GS3 please

    • BigRed4X15

      Um with the exception of an NFC chip, this is the same phone as a GS3, at least the american version. And it doesn’t have an ugly home button. Also if the number scheme is correct, they don’t even consider this a top tier phone.

      • jdrch

        Are we talking about the same 2 phones? The GS3 has 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB onboard + 32 expandable storage. Atrix HD has 1 GB of RAM and 8 + 32. The GS3 is already on the market. The Atrix HD isn’t. Ergo, Moto is far behind yet again.

  • Nick

    Get rid of the hump it’s not pretty Moto. Feels like it would do a back flip in my hand.

  • JohnPA2006

    1750mAh battery? Seriously?…. Seriously????
    So this phone will be able to run for roughly….. 4 to 6 hours before needing a full recharge. Nice going guys, there is a reason the Razr Maxx is still selling very well.

    (walks away shaking head and mumbling to self in disgust over 1750mAh battery)
    WHAT WERE THEY THINKING.
    And Atrix 2???? It was already reborn as the Bionic…. I … I dont know what else to say.

    • BlueLetter

      kinda hard for something to be reborn as something that was released a month before it was, just sayin

    • BigRed4X15

      Although I agree with your statement, is it not true that with the S4 and the integrated LTE you would get better battery life? I mean the GS3 is only 400mAh bigger, but there are no complaints about the battery.

  • http://www.flayme.com/troll/ wasteofskin

    this means the razr 2 or whatever its gonna be called is to incremental of an upgrade if you’ve already got a razr or maxx. Meh, I’m wainting for the vanilla moto’s that I know google has up their sleeves for the holidays.

  • John Burke

    Is it just me or do those buttons look way too close together?

  • TD

    Hey Moto, pay attention to Samsung. That’s how you launch a phone.

  • Knlegend1

    Okay Nice that they actually use on board navigation keys. Finally now I have High hopes for the Droid HD. I hope they’d remove the sd card too.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Frederick-Smith/100002259019137 Frederick Smith

    Meh. Not impressed. Hopefully the Photon 2 will offer something more. I’m anxious to give Sprint a shot, but I’m waiting to see what Motorola has coming.

  • fanboy1974

    Same old Motorola with the same old design and feature creep. My Droid OG days are almost forgotten. Hard to believe that Samsung had nothing worth getting back in those days and look at them now.

  • surethom

    So Atrix 4g 16Gb internal storage
    Atrix 2 8Gb internal storage 8 megapixel camera
    Atrix HD 8Gb internal storage 8 megapixel camera
    Small battery after using the Maxx, very poor. Not really much of an upgrade really

  • ysan

    Atrix HD, I feel it is a best looking motorola smartphone so far. Looks like a refined version of razr. The specs are not overkill and are more than good enough. I guess this is going to best phone at affordable cost.

  • feztheforeigner

    At least Motorola is giving their phones on-screen navigation buttons. Was so disappointed to see the Galaxy S III buttons…

    • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

      I agree. It’s the only shortcoming of the S III that really bothered me. I’m going to root the thing as soon as I can though and put a ROM on there that lets me use on screen buttons just like the Gnex. I will probably then continue to use the home button to wake up the phone, but then just use the onscreen buttons. I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the launchers also allowed this without root or a custom ROM.

  • Azn_Android

    Ew. the AT&T logo on the bezel and on the notification kills it for me. As well as the mediocre specs.

    • moelsen8

      yeah, what the F is the AT&T logo doing in what should be your notification bar. It’s not even advertising at that point since you’re the only one who’s ever going to see it. it’s sh*tting on your customers.

  • Dissatisified Customer

    Motorola is besmirching the Atrix 4G’s name by turning this phone into a mid-range phone. I mean 8GB, are you kidding me? Why not 16 at the very least? This phone is the same phone they announced in China 8 months ago, albeit with a few changes (http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_mt917-4383.php). They could have made this into a superphone, added more memory and that 3300 mAh battery and you would have had a winner. Just look at the Droid Razr Maxx and how well it’s doing in sales. This could have been the best phone on at&t, even beating the GSIII, but like always Motorola screwed it up. And they wonder why they’re losing so many customers to Samsung.

    • chris125

      moto is doing to the atrix name what htc did to the incredible name.

  • Liderc

    Front looks fine, back looks..well hideous. I don’t know why people are hating on the specs though, not terrible and I’m sure the price point is much lower than people are thinking.

    • Azn_Android

      I disagree. The back looks great, but that at&t logo on the front ruins it for me.

  • Akashshr

    Shame to have the looks just like that Razr, that was the one thing that kept the phone different from the rest!
    Still cant wait for the RaZr HD, based on the leaks!

  • jackson

    No nfc?

  • EatUrCrap

    I’m so glad I’m on Verizon, it sickens me when AT&T android phones have the AT&T branding in the Notification Bar.

    • ericl5112

      I had missed that. Terrible.

    • http://fujibayashi.jp/ Gasai Yuno

      I think that’s just the carrier label, like on regular phones etc.?

    • feztheforeigner

      My GNex has it on Verizon…Scroll down the Notification Bar and look at the bottom. Mine says “Verizon Wireless”, but it’s definitely not in my face so it doesn’t really bug me.

      • EatUrCrap

        I know, I also have the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, it’s just AT&T that like to be A-Holes and shove it in your face.

        • Mike

          my GNex says whatever I tell it to say. :-D

  • PowerofPicture

    As one of the few who bought the Atrix 2 this doesn’t seem worth putting out there. Same internal storage, same 8mp camera, same ram, same battery size (wtf). It looks nice but c’mon, it’s a downgraded Razr HD.

    • Julian

      Dude, it’s a decent upgrade. Yes it has the same internal storage, 8MP camera, RAM and battery but it has a larger screen, faster processor 1GH dual-core in the Atrix II vs. 1.5 dual core in the HD) and finally supports 4G LTE. Pretty decent upgrade.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001458670467 Tyler Cameron

        And has an HD screen. Which means it has windensities.

      • PowerofPicture

        Dude, it’s not an upgrade with a crippled battery. Fail.

  • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

    Actually looks like a good phone. I mean, of course, it looks like an AT&T version of the Razr. But, maybe some AT&Tr’s will like that.

    • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

      Although, being that this phone with this look and specs will be coming out when it does, MAYBE some AT&Tr’s will like it, then again, it may just piss some of them off while at the same time waste Moto money making the thing. But I don’t suppose it could waste any more production money that the stupid freakin’ Xyboard did. Morons.

  • gokusimpson

    Soooo Razr HD news to come soon?

    • michael arazan

      Really, they’re not going to release this and the Maxx HD at the same time, would they? With sammy and htc releasing phones with 2 gb of ram I’m surprised moto isn’t going to keep up with the Jones’.

      • Hocky

        wtf is the Razr Maxx HD? Why would they make a Razr Maxx with an HD display if the ‘Razr HD’ is going to be the same thing but better spec’ed with the same Battery. I haven’t heard anything about a ‘Razr Maxx HD’ yet.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Ummmm i think everyone expets the RAZR HD to come with a 3300. Hence the “Maxx” designation.

          • Immolate

            Since the Maxx has been one of the most popular phones on Verizon since its release, they are probably well-advised to use that name as a brand for super-battery Droids.

          • Hocky

            Whats what I’m saying. I’ve not heard of a Razr HD with ‘Maxx’ in the name.

      • Jordan

        Seeing as the Atrix will release on ATT and the “MAXX HD” Will more than likely release on verizon… i dont see any competition between the two phones.

  • http://twitter.com/Belatukadro Justtyn Hutcheson
  • S23

    What people don’t get is that this will be $150 or $100…..its not going head to head with gs3…..similar to atrix 2…..there’s are reason why it is an “hd” and not “3”…Amazing Budget phone………colorboost display………wtf?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jeremy.turnley Jeremy Turnley

      Most likely $149, with a price cut one the One X to $99; it fills a gap. I love my HOX, but a slightly smaller screen with Moto build quality and accessories is a mighty big selling point.

  • Bionic

    AT&t blows

  • ericl5112

    Another device with on-screen buttons with a bezel that is no smaller than a device with capacitive buttons. Further hinting that there is an internal bezel limit unaffected by the buttons. Possibly screen support/connectors, batteries, and the like.A

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001458670467 Tyler Cameron

      Where else would the AT&T logo go? Motorola and HTC are the carriers’ bitches, they bend over for any carrier demand.

      • ericl5112

        Yeah, the logo is pretty bad. How many people are going to press it thinking it’s a button, and getting annoyed when it doesn’t work. Should have put it by the speaker.

  • BAoxymoron

    battery fail much?

    • Andy Hilton

      Are you asking if the battery fails often? I’m not sure what you mean.

      • http://AndroidTaskForce.com Timmy

        *facepalm.

        • Mike

          I lol’d

        • Andy Hilton

          Did Facebook buy Palm from HP? Crap! I didn’t know that.

  • http://twitter.com/binglut9 Brian

    Verizon always late to the game

    • Rob Schoenfeld

      How so??? Verizon has at least three phones with 720p screens. The droid razr maxx has the best battery life of any Android phone on the market. The Razr HD is supposed to have the 3300 battery of the Maxx and 720p screen. How is this late?

  • Frank F

    The og atrix is still better then this… The sgs2 is better… Omg moto fail… All this time u been quite on the att front and all u do is give us the original RAZR with out any major upgrades… Where’s the bigger battery at like on the maxx… Jesus thank god I already decided on sgs3…Google needs to just fully take over Motorola and stop pussyfooting about it and make the ultimate nexus!

    • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

      “…make the ultimate nexus!” PREACH!!!

  • Immolate

    Not a bad Moto phone, but a step behind the S3 in pretty much every respect. Smaller screen, smaller battery, smaller FFC, less RAM, less internal storage, less external storage capacity, and of course locked boot loader. I could be wrong, but I expect that this won’t sell terribly well due to the timing. A couple of months ago and it may have been a hit.

    Is the battery removeable?

    • Emad Zia

      unless it comes in at half the price, which it prob will. atrix 2 is still one of my fave phones.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001458670467 Tyler Cameron

      None of the Atrixes have been much of a hit..
      And a smaller screen isn’t a lower-end spec.. 4.8 inches is too big for my hand. If I can’t reach the corners on the other side of the screen with my thumb, the screen is too big. That’s the general rule for me. The Galaxy Nexus’s screen is ALMOST too big for me.

      • Aftermath

        Maybe because you are twelve years old

      • feztheforeigner

        My advise: just use the phone and see for yourself, it really isn’t that big.

        Everyone I have talked to has told me that the new onslaught of ‘big’ phones are far too large. Going all the way back to 4.0, then 4.3, 4.5, 4.6-4.7, and now 4.8-5″.

        Every time it has been to big, then people get used to it and can’t go back.

        • NicholasMicallef

          Yeah, I always tell everyone who says an iPhone has the perfect screen size and these phones are too big to actually try them out before they judge, they usually change their opinion.
          TBH even my SGS II feels small after having tried the SGS III and HTC One X.

      • Butters619

        The original Atrix was fairly popular.

    • Immolate

      I’d forgotten about the One-X, which probably would have killed the Atrix 3 off even if it had been released two months ago. Agreed on screen size as to each his own, but we haven’t seen any smaller-screen phones make much of a splash in some time. also, the difference in phone size between GNex and SGS3 is supposed to be negligible.

      • Butters619

        I bought a One X and honestly I would have swapped it for this phone had it had more than 16GB internal storage and a bigger battery. But without those, nope.

  • alt

    Looks like another RAZR to me :/.

  • http://twitter.com/TheMuffStuff Danny B

    Might as well wait for the Atrix HD Maxx

    • Acid’sMark

      My thoughts exactly…

    • Butters619

      After the success of the Razr Maxx, I can’t believe Moto dropped a phone with a small battery. Just blows my mind.

      • chris125

        its so they can drop the atrix hd maxx 2 months later…

        • Butters619

          I can’t wait to see the product line now that Google has taken over. It will take 6-12 months for the new stuff to make it to production, but that is what I am excited for.

      • GiveUsMoreRam

        Not to mention only 1 GB of Ram. With the SGSIII already released with 2GB of Ram, this needs to be the new standard with all upcoming superphones!
        As apps get more complex we will need more memory for them to run on and 1 GB of Ram is so 2011!

        • Butters619

          Honestly 1GB of Ram if done right (not the HTC way) would be enough, but like you I would have liked to see 2GB. The 8GB of internal storage is embarrassing but at least this has an SD card slot.

          I really wanted to swap out my One X for this phone, but now that the specs are out there is just no way I would. I really wanted to see that Maxx battery, 16+ GB internal storage, SD slot, and 2GB of Ram. A phone like that would have been an easy pick up.

        • Sean Collins

          It’s worth noting that this isn’t going to be a Motorola flagship device. AFAIK the numbering system MB8xx or MB9xx tells if it’s mid-range or premium (respectively). This seems like a mid-range phone. I wonder if it’s A15 or A9 =/

    • Daniel Maginnis

      Does anyone remember reading that the LTE chipsets are much more efficient on ATT due do their switching as opposed to running both @ the same time like VZW? I don’t think batt will be an issue.
