Motorola Photon Q QWERTY Slider Sporting Smartphone Confirmed for 2012 Launch

July 28, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Motorola‘s Photon Q Android smartphone will hit the markets in the later half of 2012.  The new phone is an LTE smartphone for the US market.

The QWERTY slider format is now not an exciting feature in the smartphone segment and so fans of the form-factor generally get more excited than most to see a new option on the horizon.

The news of the Photon Q’s arrival was broken to the world not by Motorola itself but by Sprint CEO Dan Hesse.

The specifications for the phone have not been confirmed yet. But based on previous leaks and rumors, it’s believed to have a roughly 4.3-inch button. The Photon Q will feature on-screen navigation buttons rather than any physical buttons.

The Operating System is expected to be Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We can all keep hoping that Motorola will manage to squeeze in Jelly Bean in Photon Q, rather than ICS, between now and the launch.

The processor, camera resolution, and whether Motorola will use its own customized MOTOBLUR interface are still doubtful, but the Photon Q looks like it will be a decently sized device  given the five-row keyboard it manages to accommodate.
