Tegra 2-based Motorola Olympus Android smartphone pictured, headed to AT&T?

A couple pf photos that reportedly unveil one of Motorola’s upcoming flagship Android smartphones have just appeared on the web. It’s said that the smartphone is the Motorola Olympus MB860.

Like this leaked LG handset, the Olympus should be based on Nvidia’s Tegra 2 dual-core chip.

Assuming the photos are of the real device, the Olympus looks like a larger (although thinner) Motorola Defy, with a video-calling camera added on the front.

The Olympus might be launched by AT&T in the US sometime soon – likely early next year, when it should have Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board. Since T-Mobile plans to launch the Google Nexus S (another upcoming Gingerbread handset), it would make sense for AT&T to introduce the Motorola Olympus, right?

    Even thought the Nexus S is shipping with the more powerful Orion, I have a feeling that Tegra 2’s GPU -even though not as powerful- will have much better battery life…. and considering both devices will be beasts, I’d go for battery life…

    Also, it seems that this will be made from better materials than plastic fantastic Nexus S. On the other hand, Nexus S will have a Super AMOLED screen….. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..
