Motorola XT928 coming to China Telecom next month for 'demanding customers'

Motorola bestowed an early-week treat upon the Chinese market today, with the XT928 -- a nominal RAZR relative and ostensible addition to the Droid X line that we spotted earlier this month. Powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, this Android 2.3 device boasts a 4.5-inch, 1280 x 720 HD display, supports 1080p HD playback and features a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera, along with a 1.3 megapixel shooter up front. The dual-mode, dual-standby handset is also coated in Corning Gorilla Glass to guard against nasty scratches and comes packed with 1GB of RAM. The XT928 will be available in China this December at an unspecified price, though there's no word yet on if or when it'll hit the US. For more details, head past the break for the full PR.

BEIJING – November 28, 2011 – Stop dreaming and start doing with the all-new dual-core, dual-mode, dual-standby Motorola XT928 from Motorola Mobility, Inc. and China Telecom. With a huge 4.5-inch touch screen with 1280x720 HD resolution, 1080p HD video capture/playback, 13-megapixel camera and Dolby® Digital Plus audio technology in a stunning package, this is mobile multimedia like you've never experienced it before. The Motorola XT928 will be available across China from Motorola Mobility and China Telecom this December.

With a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, apps will run much faster than single-core processor phones. Watch movies on the big, bright HD screen, which is protected by scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass. If you want to create your own multimedia, use the 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p high-definition video capture for crisp, clear, cinematic-quality images. As if that wasn't enough, there's also a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. This is no camera phone; it's a camera inside of a phone, with features like Wide Dynamic Range, which enhances photos by filtering bright and dark areas to accurately capture scenes with a wide range of light.
