Sprint intros Motorola Photon 4G with Android Gingerbread

Sprint and Motorola have surprised everyone today with the introduction of two new Android smartphones: the Motorola Photon 4G and the Motorola Triumph.

Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the Photon 4G is Sprint’s first Moto smartphone to come with WiMax connectivity, as well as the first to rely on a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.

Like Verizon’s yet to be released Droid Bionic, the Motorola Photon 4G has a qHD (960 x 540) display. Its other features include: Wi-Fi, 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability, GPS, 8MP rear camera with 720p video recording, VGA front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board memory (expandable via a MicroSD card slot), and a kickstand.

The Motorola Photon 4G measures 126.9 x 66.9 x 12.2 mm, and comes with a 1,700 mAh battery. Sprint didn’t say when exactly it would be available, and neither for what price.

We’ll cover the Motorola Triumph in a bit, too.
