UPDATE: Motorola has sent out a press release spilling the beans on the Photon Q. Aside from confirming the size of the 4.3-inch ColorBoost display, the press release also outlines a number of other specs, including the phone's 1.5 GHz, dual-core processor, a rear-facing 8 MP camera, a front-facing "HD" camera for video chatting, NFC support, and the ability to engage in "mirror mode" via the phone's micro HDMI port. Motorola states that pricing and availability for the Photon Q will be announced "within the next few weeks."
It's been over a month since we've heard anything about the Motorola Photon Q, a QWERTY slider phone from Sprint, but the carrier is now saying that the device is coming "very soon."
Sprint CEO Dan Hesse revealed that the smartphone would be coming in the near future during this morning's earnings call.
The Photon Q will be an Android 4.0 "world phone" that will be available on Sprint's LTE network, but beyond that, little information has been made available about the device. It's rumored to have a 4.3-inch screen, though that has not been confirmed, and the leaked image seen here indicates that it will feature on-screen navigation buttons rather than silkscreened ones.
Once Sprint offers up more details about the Photon Q, including a more precise release date and pricing, we'll be sure to share the information.
