Motorola Medfield Phone Surfaces

Think back a month ago and you may remember the Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha taking the stage during Intel’s keynote at CES announcing that the US company would be teaming up with the chip giant and producing phones powered by Intel’s low-power Medfield chip.

A leaked image obtained by PocketNow, shows that the new phone looks to have taken some styling hints from the company’s Droid Razr, though the new phone is clad in grey rather than the usual black. The phone will be running Android Ice Cream Sandwich if this photo is anything to go by and it will be skinned by a new version of Motoblur.

The camera is expected to be pretty impressive with an instant-on functionality and a 15-frame-per-second burst capture mode. If the Intel reference smartphone is anything to go by, then the Motorola phone could also handle 1080p video playback – though the first ever Medfield phone, the Lenovo K800 is only capable of 720p playback.

Reports suggest that the Motorola Medfield phone will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of the month and we’ll be on hand to give you our first impressions.

However we won’t be seeing it in stores until the second half of the year as Sanjay Jha said when he addressed the audience at CES earlier this year.
