Quad-core Motorola Atrix 3 concept sounds too good with 3300mAh battery, HD screen and 2GB of RAM
Purported image of a Motorola Atrix 3 is making the rounds in the blogosphere now, but it was actually sent as a wishful thinking piece to a concept phone website at first. 

Still, the listed specs are worth being entertained and discussed, as the thin Atrix 3 is listed with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, the mighty 2GB of RAM, HD display and 10MP camera with dual LED flash. Above all, with 3300mAh battery, like the RAZR MAXX marathon runner.

This dreamy Atrix 3 is actually not that far-fetched since Motorola already has two phones for China Mobile with HD displays - one with Super AMOLED Advanced and one with IPS-LCD, not to mention that one of them, the Motorola MT917, has a 13MP camera with dual flash on the back.

Quad-core Motorola Atrix 3 concept sounds too good with 3300mAh battery, HD screen and 2GB of RAM
Tegra 3 is also not that surprising, considering that both LG and HTC are hopping on the quad-core bandwagon with precisely this chip for their next flagships. Android ICS has TI's OMAP CPU family as a poster child, but it's not a requirement for running Android 4.0, of course. The 2GB of RAM is a stretch, but if Motorola is willing, it can certainly go with all guns blazing.

What bugs us in this Atrix 3 concept is the 3300mAh battery - the specific design of the RAZR allowed for a very flat and thin non-replaceable battery in order to fit in one of the slimmest Android bodies around, and the 3300mAh added only a little to the thickness of the RAZR MAXX thanks to this design marvel as well. 

Now an Atrix 3 like that should obviously be thin as well, but it has to follow the RAZR's design paradigm in order to fit a 3300mAh juicer inside this concept here, so we'll see what the future holds, hopefully Motorola will be announcing its next steps at the MWC in a few days. What do you think, would you like to see such a monster phone from Motorola like this here Atrix 3 concept land in the US for the summer?

I don't know what the big deal with thinness of phones is!
I mean I don't want a brick, but if the phone becomes too thin it becomes difficult to hold!

So, yes, I would have a thicker phone if it meant I could hold it better and have a longer battery life!

Motorola is killin' em. I bet there's no buttons on that thing either.

I reeeally hope Samsung pushed back the launch of the GS3 so that they can copy Moto and slap a huge battery in it. F--K a skinny phone!!

phoneArena, how can we start an anti-skinny phones movement?

6. Captain_Doug (Posts: 997; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)

Skinny is relative. The rezound which everyone thinks is ginormous is really only .54 inches thick while thinner phones are like .28-.35. I say that manufacturers should have a minimum of .4 inches and if they design a phone smaller, then just throw on a bigger battery. I really think the RAZR should not exist. It's pointless. All phones whould have whatever leftover space be filled with battery. Although I personally don't like anything bigger than .5 or .55. It's amazing how a couple millimeters make such a big difference.

I guess the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be more or less the same spec. as this moto atrix exact with an Exynos quad core processor insead of Tegra 3, may be with a less powerful battery in teh range of 2000 to 2500MAH like the galaxy note. It is interesting to see how teh Exynos quad core processor compete with the quad core Tegra III processor when the SGIII comes out at a later date.

i dont think so. This phone is a dream come true For any tech geek.
But still i am sticking with microsoft quad core or not i have no use for a big cpu if it ain't as smooth as winpho.
No disrespect. But thats my preference i m not talking about any of u. You like android,ios,bbx,bada,symbian or palm os go get you like buy it noone is stopping you.

Really don't know why everyone is astounded by the specs on this. Why should we be happy with a quad-core phone that mimics the specs of all the other phones out there? I want to see all the other hardware improvinig along with the cpu!

Wonder if the battery will last long considering it will have quad core and 2gb of ram.

Great point. That's a lot going on in there. I'd imagine it would have to have a battery that size to keep up. Especially if its equiped with LTE... Love that spec sheet though.

most of the quad core phones will be similar in spec etc in the end its going to come down to things like the camera quality,design of the phone(many people purchase on looks alone)which quad core cpu and gpu and obviously how well the ics is tuned with the device etc etc ..the reason am waiting on the the s3 is because amoled hd for the true blacks,i just cant stand lcd screens anymore before i had an amoled screen i never had an issue with lcd but once you use it and go back you can tell...watch the razr vs droid 4 video and you can see the difference.also as i live in the uk,samsung provide timely updates for us,we getting ics next month :)..also the exynos processor was considered by many as the best cpu for android phone in 2011 and is still one of the fastest right now so i cant imagine a quad core exynos or the dual core exynos with a15.also in the uk theres only one model of the s2 so it doesnt get outdated like other oems like htc who release countless phones based on 1 design.also it depends on what flavour of skin you like but to be honest just like in 2011 pretty much all phones will have almost the same spec sheet...i still think the s3 will be the runaway success from the android phones just like the s2 was in 2011.samsung have done great to get the galaxy brand known to people,the s3,xperia s are the two phones i am keen on at the moment..never really been a fan of moto or htc lol what i really want is a nokia android phone. lumia 800 design with n8 camera and ics and samsung cpu= my dream phone for 2012

You ever ask yourself what's the 2GB RAM for?

posted on 17 Feb 2012, 11:48 2

31. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)

to make sure the phone never ever lags again. you need more ram when the resolution of the phone goes up. it also leaves room for more in depth apps and games. Its the exact same reason you dont see people running windows 7 computers with 256mb of ram, which used to be huge.

why does it have to follow the razr maxx design style to achieve a large battery,am sure moto could have easily found other ways to have a large battery in different designs.

This is still actually better than your crappy iphone with mostly everything locked on it. No memory card slot, no usb port, no file transfer via bluetooth, tiny uncomfortable screen, multithreading instead of real-time multasking, no customization.. You need more?

This is going to be a dream phone that everyone is going to want. With or without a locked bootloader, but preferrably unlocked. With Motorola owned by Google, things will change.

If there is any truth to this rumor, then moto might be at the start of a banner year.
The only thing that I would hope on that would be for moto to make it a stock phone with no blur and promise super quick updates like a nexus style device.

Regardless, I hope we start seeing batteries like that as more of a norm instead of a novelty.

One of the biggest gripes I have had with high end motorola offerings is the camera quality. I mean honestly motorola hasnt made a camera that is superior to the iphone 4 that came out almost two years ago at this point... it seems as though they are targeting this issue along with obviously the battery issue, having an exceptional camera and battery life and then something to compete with samsung's exynos line of chips and we are talking unstoppable stuff here

Thank God other companies are not trying to see samsung win this mobile war. I can't stand them with their horrible style of updating phones *looks at samsung infuse* I hope motorola does launch this monster of a phone which hopefully steals the galaxy s3's thunder before either even comes out.

What a monster phone, I still don't get the complaints. One complains that something is wrong with a "thin" phone, do you have arthritis or something which prevents you from holding a thin phone? Then comes the blatant lie about Motorola's upgrading of phones...right must be lost as Motorola flagship phones are usually quicker to get updated than any other OEM phone.

Moto needs to make extensive use of that super thing giant 3300mAh battery, and also they need to do some serious shopping for an ace camera sensor. I would prefer it be 8mpx but have excellent sensor that has superior low light ability and reproduces excellent images in daylight. Coupled with a serious cpu and ICS Motorola could start a new line of Razr edge quality phones...I'm going to patent that tag line :).

SMH.....Quadcore processors sound nice and all but if Android isnt optimized for dual core at the least, its a waste......On Windows phone, if hardware was EXACTLY the same and if the ONLY difference was software, the windows phone would be more battery efficient and this is a proven fact.

im an android guy but ive recenetly turned off android a lil bit bcuz i think all these specs are kinda like propaganda to get phone nerds like us to spend money. Example: the box of the Motorola Ghost (i made it up) would say a Quad core Tegra 4 processor @ 2GhZ , 2GB of RAM, 2000mAh battery thats .3mm thick but software is only optimized to utilize only 1 core and the battery still sucks whereas Windows phone, Black berry, or even Iphone had these specs, they wouldnt have as many problems as we do with battery or bugs. Fragmentation doesnt make it no better because it makes the app market suck for us. thats why some of the good games like fruit ninja havent been updated in a year because theres too many versions to dev for. Android has to do better mann...

for the avg joe, they dont care about of that stuff and thats what the manufactures look at. The average joe basically looks for stability, and battery life. Phone nerds may have a presence but ultimately, the avg joes is the crowd that pay their bills...

Damn, I'm not a motorola fan, but if this one is true I will have to do some serious thinking about what will be my next phone...I just hope the screen will not be PenTile, that's a dealbreaker for me i love 3 subpixels in every pixel :D...and i could not agree more with all of you here saying that phone manufacturer's shouldn't compromise battery capacity just to make thiner phones, I personaly have nothing against 11-12mm thick phones if the battery is going to be 3000mAh++

Personally this is great I look forward to the future that will have LARGE STOCK BATTERIES. But seriously Moto these specs look great but motoblur and locked bootloader spells NOPE in my world. For me it's the Galaxy Nexus ONLY and trust me the NEXT NEXUS will BLOW THIS AWAY....

If this happens to be true, then wow. I think it could be possible that Motorola is trying to be the standard when it comes to battery life which means that all other offerings will also need to step it up. That means better battery life across the board for everyone.
