Motorola and AT&T have announced the ATRIX 2 smartphone, the successor to the ATRIX 4G released earlier this year. The ATRIX 2 builds on the ATRIX 4G's impressive specifications with a larger, sharper screen and an upgraded camera.

The display on the ATRIX 2 now measures 4.3 inches across, up from the 4-inch display found on the ATRIX 4G. It still retains the qHD (540 x 960 pixel) resolution, but instead of using the highly criticized PenTile layout for its pixels, the ATRIX 2 uses a more traditional layout, offering better clarity and sharpness. Motorola says the display has over 500,000 pixels crammed into it. The ATRIX 2 is powered by a dual-core, 1GHz processor and has 1GB of RAM. There is 8GB of internal storage built-in, and a 2GB microSD card comes pre-loaded in the phone.

The ATRIX 2 is equipped with an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, and it can record 1080p HD (1920 x 1080 pixel) video. A front-facing camera is available for video chat duties. There is an HDMI-out port that offers full mirroring, so captured video can be easily displayed on a larger screen. The phone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with the latest version of Motorola's custom interface. It is also compatible with the new universal Lapdock 100 laptop dock that converts the phone into full computer.

AT&T says the ATRIX 2 will be available before the end of the year, but it has not announced an exact release date or price for the smartphone just yet.
