Motorola PHOTON 4G sequel for Sprint this year?
Last year, Sprint introduced the Motorola PHOTON 4G which became the manufacturer's flagship model on Sprint. According to a source for PocketNow, Sprint and Motorola will be trying to repeat the success with a sequel version of the phone. The handset is expected to be called the Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE which tells you that there will be support for the carrier's upcoming LTE pipeline.

Nothing in the way of specs has been leaked but considering that the original version was a high-end device, you would expect something in the way of a 720p HD display with the same diamond-cut corners. While the original featured a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, the LTE at the end of the sequel's name precludes it from using the quad-core Tegra 3. Considering that a benchmark test showed that Motorola could be looking to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor in some of its new high-end handsets, you could find the speedy S4 processor driving the Photon sequel. There is no word on availability or pricing,  but we would imagine that the kickstand would be back and that Android 4.0 would be installed.
