The Motorola PHOTON 4G will feature some high-end specs such as the 4.3 inch qHD touchscreen which will be able to withstand the typical rough and tumble smartphone use thanks to Gorilla Glass. A dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip running at 1GHz is under the hood while 1GB of RAM is on board. On back is an 8MP camera with dual LED flash. A VGA front-facing camera takes self-portraits and works great for video chats. The PHOTON 4G comes out of the box with 16GB of memory that can be bumped to as much as 48GB using a microSD card. Up to 8 devices can be supported on Sprint's 3G/4G pipelines using the model's Mobile HotSpot capabilities.
Sprint Premier customers will get a chance to order the Motorola PHOTRON 4G up to 3 days earlier than "regular" Sprint customers. Premier customers can order the phone starting July 28th, online only. And of course, a device like the Motorola PHOTON 4G deserves some nice accessories. Sprint will be offering a holster and shield combo for $24.99. A protective gel cover will cost $19.99 and will be available in purple only. And a two-piece grey cover slides together to protect both the top and bottom of the unit. That case will cost $21.99.
Sprint customers with an update in their pocket now have a tough choice to make-pick up the HTC EVO 3D or the Motorola PHOTON 4G. Which one would you want in your hand?
