Sprint CEO Dan Hesse lets the Motorola PHOTON Q slip from his lips during earnings call

Sprint CEO Dan Hesse lets the Motorola PHOTON Q slip from his lips during earnings call
Back in April, we showed you a picture of a device that was allegedly a sequel to the successful Motorola PHOTON 4G on Sprint. The diamond cut corners on the phone labeled this model as belonging to the PHOTON line and the side-sliding QWERTY explained the "Q" in what many were calling the Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE. The next time we ran into the device was following its visit with those well-mannered guys at the FCC. And that was it until Thursday when Sprint CEO Dan Hesse discussed the phone during a conference call for the carrier's Q3 earnings.

The executive said today that the Motorola PHOTON Q will be coming "very soon" and will be equipped with the 5 row side-sliding QWERTY that we see in the leaked photo of the phone from way back in April. Additionally, the Motorola PHOTON Q will have 4G LTE connectivity and will be a World Phone with GSM roaming capabilities. Even though Android 4.1.1 is available, it most likely won't be installed on the device until a future update. But hey, that means Android 4.0 will most likely be running the show right out of the box and that is not bad at all.

Other specs for the Motorola PHOTON Q that we took from the initial leak of the phone include a 4 to 4.3 inch display with 720p resolution. Under the hood we could see the dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor. While we don't have the full picture yet on the Motorola PHOTON Q, Mr. Hesse did say that the device will be coming soon to Sprint so it shouldn't be too long before we know the full story including specs, pricing and availability.
