New Motorola Atrix with 8MP camera and 1080p video recording coming to AT&T?

We’re not quite sure what’s going on here, but photos of a new Atrix-like Motorola Android smartphone have appeared somewhere in China, making us believe that AT&T is getting ready to introduce an upgraded version of the above-mentioned device.

The unnamed handset looks a lot like the Atrix. However, on the back it flaunts an 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, instead of a 5MP one with 720p video (like the original Atrix has). Also: there’s no sign of the MotoBlur logo, the headset jack and power button have been repositioned, the AT&T logo has been moved above the display, and the earpiece has been redesigned. Moreover, there’s a dedicated camera button on the handset’s right side. (which published these photos that seem to come from IT168) believes the new Moto smartphone may have some sort of a curved glass surface on the display.

Since the original Atrix (pictured below for the sake of comparison) has a 1GHz dual-core processor, the new one should feature a CPU at least as powerful.

Of course, there’s no way to tell if this handset handset will actually make it to the market. Maybe it’s just a prototype. We’ll let you know as soon as we find new info.

If you’re still interested in the first rendition of the Atrix 4G, head over to Amazon.

    guess moto doesn’t knows some atrix’s failures were blur, lock bootloader, cheap plastic and ugly shape. atrix screen and camera isn’t the main reasons. although 8mp bump and atleast 1.3mp secondary would help. make them like the droid series with current specs sans keyboard and it’ll be a sure winner.

    I love my Atrix except for the cameras and the screen is better with gingerbread. But the back and front camera is terrible for taking pics
