Quad-core Motorola Atrix 3 concept sounds too good with 3300mAh battery, HD screen and 2GB of RAM

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.

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?

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.

if this is the ATrix 3, then how the Galaxy S 3 specs will be?

One can only imagine. I myself am really curious to see the design of the phone. I know the insides are going to be insane.

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.

Samsung galaxy s3 will have a run for it's money against this one. Big battery is the next big thing of smartphone world!

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?

31. remixfa

Posts: 14605; Member since: Dec 19, 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.

who cares about thin, rather have a bigger battery than 2mm...

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.

Great. Another Gingerbread phone with a locked bootloader and crappy pentile display. Go Motorola. Keep selling crappy phones to the mindless droid masses.

Oh, you idiot. This is a concept phone by a random person, much like all the dream iPhones we see. Did you even read the damn article?

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?
