Rendering shows Motorola's first Android 4.0 phone and it has Intel inside
A rendering obtained by PocketNow shows what is claimed to be Motorola's first smartphone powered by Ice Cream Sandwich. In addition to being the manufacturer's first Android 4.0 unit, the unnamed device is expected to be driven by Intel's Medfield Platform instead of the TI OMAP processor usually found in a Motorola smartphone.

Expected to be displayed at the end of the month at MWC in Barcelona, the Motorola handset sports a new version of the MotoBlur UI. Additionally, the camera is supposedly a major improvement from what the manufacturer has been turning out on the latest series of DROID models. The new camera offers instant-on capabilities as opposed to the long wait for the shooter that Motorola DROID BIONIC owners have become accustomed to, and which Apple made fun of during the introduction of the Apple iPhone 4S. The cameras also will take bursts of shots as fast as 15 frames per second.

We are looking forward to seeing more of thus unnamed model in Barcelona, especially after seeing the rendering with the thin silver colored casing and the design free from buttons. Yes, we will be in Barcelona at the end of the month, so don't miss a second of our coverage of MWC 2012.

It turns out Moto might not show the phone at MWC.

I just really hope they do not place the micro-USB and HDMI ports on the top of this phone (and future phones) like they did with the RAZR (MAXX). That design made absolutely no sense whatsoever!!! Perhaps they will do away with ports completely and incorporate wireless charging and syncing. Wireless HD broadcasting would be interesting as well. I also hope they utilize the nanocoating technology inside and out and make this a truly waterproof device!!!

there simply wasn't enough room for the ports anywhere else on the handset and I don't mind it. if anything it helps with the strain on my chargers when I'm using and charging my phone at the same time.

Nice phone render but my gripe is with the bottom end, it looks too much like an HTC phone(thunderbolt) to me. This also seems to sport the vanishing buttons a la galaxy Nexus which is a good thing. I really much want to see maximizing of screen space on these phones without making the phone that much larger. I cringe at the sight of phones with too much space above and below the screen just looks like a waste to me. Let's see now it's not sporting a TI OMAP processor? This is interesting but guaranteed this phone won't land as a Droid, that's for sure. TI OMAP's are already proven and have a track record with the Droid line for Verizon, the 4460 should prove to be quite the powerhouse and more than likely to power the next Droid flagship.

the picture looks fake, on the side it doesnt make sense, button for the camera, volume rocker and some sort of slot, most likely USB, and those three buttons, Or it could be LED lights for no reason. Then another site has the phone different, Shiny aluminum and the back of the phone is just like the ASUS Tprime.Blue LED cap buttons.

i agree and that would look nice. as long as it's not done by cheap chrome accents. i've had bad experiences with LG Dares that have cheap chrome accents. i've stayed away from chrome looks ever since. >>

WOW! IDK, but this is a really good looking device and the UI, looks GREAT! I also love how Motorola took ICS morphed it with there latest UI, and upgraded it even further.

Are you kidding this phone is ugly. Ugly ugly ugly ugly ugly. Look at Acer cloud mobile for a good looking device. UI is pretty cartoonish to.

I don't think I would use quite so many uglies, but I largely agree. I really don't understand what the manufacturers are thinking with these fracking silly looking icons(Touchwiz=eww). I've said it all over the web and I'll say it again, ADULTS buy these phones, not CHILDREN. So please, design accordingly. I think it's that they're trying to look like iOS with the square icons, which is lame. If I wanted iOS I would buy an iPhone damnit. GIVE ME PURE ANDROID!

the plan was an old set of Nokia Icons.... they where ugly , among all the icons in all the skins I've seen Moto has the best icons ever

I liked Moto's Icons more before they changed them with 2.3.6.

I haven't seen the new new ones but I have to say that I like the ones I see in this picture, they look nice

36. KingKurogiii

the icons in this rendering is what is being used in 2.3.6 on the Razr and the 4 except without the notification counters.

the majority of people are drawn to the colorful look. Most regular customers really love how Touchwiz pops from the screen on a super amoled display. They are just taking a page from samsung on this one, which considering samsung's wide lead might not be a bad idea.

I agree this phone is freaking ugly but I like the UI though.

that weather widget looks slick! love how they seem to have left many things nearly intact, less time building when there is something beautiful already built others need to learn, skins can be scaled down to apps that have or use special features

also the by the looks it seems to have a beefy battery and looks like a razr max in terms of thickness while not being too wide! more phone with Max's battery would be heavily welcome -720p screen -8mp+ cam -not too deep skin -nice new widgets and features if all become true this could be an awesome phone

exactly. i would actually use that clock widget. it's very similar to the one on Moto's slightly skinned version of Honeycomb similar to what they've done here on ICS that i love so much.

17. protozeloz

Posts: 5396; Member since: Sep 16, 2010

I've said with ICS they can worry less about changing some things and worry more about adding more cool features and nice looking stuff to it, Google stepped their game on manufacturers should do the same, and we wend with better looking phones and cool new features to play and brag about :P
