Atrix 3 image

With the pre-Mobile World Congress rumor season in full swing, today sees the emergence of yet another purported device, spec list and image. This time it's the "Motorola Atrix 3", which is being reported on Chinese site Tianjin Daily, after being pulled from Concept-Phones.com. The photo shows a relatively plain, buttonless front sporting a Motorola logo and roughly 16:9 aspect ratio screen. However, it's unclear whether this is a concept, a prototype or simply an imagined device. The original picture is a far cry from your usual concept render, and appears to be an actual photograph. Maybe it's real, maybe someone was just really bored and made a model of their dream smartphone.

For what they're worth, the alleged specs include a Tegra 3 processor, a surprising 2GB of RAM, a 720p display, 10MP camera with dual LED flash and a Droid RAZR MAXX-level 3300mAh battery. All plausible (though 2GB of RAM would be a smartphone first), but at the same time unconfirmable. So we're taking this with a pinch of salt for now.

If it is real, though, the "Atrix 3" could go up against rumored Tegra 3 phones like the HTC One X and LG X3, both of which are expected to be unveiled in Barcelona in just over a week's time. We'll be there covering the whole week's events live.
