Motorola XT316 Spotted at FCC Gates Yet Again; Coming to US Soon

July 1, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Remember the Motorola XT316 – the phone with a passport to China? Back in April, when the FCC scrutinized the device, American markets could not get hold of the phone, as it packed only Chinese-supported 3G bands. We all thought the Android device wouldn’t get to see the light of the day in the US.

But this time around, the phone will get the federal go through as it comes with AT&T-compatible 3G bands. Nothing else seems to have changed though. From its dimensions to the specifications, everything’s the same.

Now, if you don’t remember how it looks like, here’s a recap. The Motorola XT316 runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is powered by a Qualcomm MSM7227 600 MHz CPU, Adreno 200 GPU. It’s a QWERTY-slide device with 2.8-inch LCD Capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 240X320.

It has got 256 MB RAM, 512MB ROM and a micro SD slot extendable up to 32GB. The smartphone packs a 3.2 megapixel rear camera with 4x digital zoom and auto focus.

The phone comes with switchable user interface profiles, and enhanced social messaging capabilities. The device comes about as small enough to pocket easily, yet powerful enough to keep you connected to your social networks and run your favorite apps. Its other common features include 3G connectivity, WiFi and Bluetooth.

Good enough specs for a decent enough entertainment, right? Let’s hope it will land stateside soon. We will be keeping our eyes open. So stay with us, and we’ll let you know.
