What we have here is a new model in what is now the Quench range of Android-powered smartphones from Motorola, the XT5. Little was previously known about this handset, but thankfully its specs and a couple of pictures have leaked.
So without further ado, here’s what this model is packing:
- OS: Android 2.1
- Band/Modes: WCDMA 900/1900/2100, GSM 850/900/1800/1900, HSDPA 7.2 Mbps (Category 7/8), EDGE Class 12
- Display: 3.2″ 480×320 HVGA 262k
- FM radio, DivX video playback
- Battery: 1270 mAh
- Dimensions: 56 x 114 x 13 mm
- Weight: 114 g
This is shaping up to be a decent midrange smartphone, perhaps hampered a bit by the battery capacity compared to rivals such as the Samsung Galaxy 3. Of course, if the Quench XT5 were to get a price that is more attractive than its competitors’, things could be looking very good for this effort from Motorola, who seem to be banking everything on Android these days.
The supported bands clearly indicate a European/international release and no love for any of the US operators, but there’s always the possibility that one or more different versions of the phone tailored to AT&T’s or T-Mobile’s 3G bands would come in the future.
Needless to say, there’s no word yet on availability or even a date for the official announcement regarding this smartphone.
