An eye-popping 3.5-inch HVGA capacitive multi-touch display. Connectivity options are plentiful: dual-band HSDPA, quad-band EDGE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, and aGPS are standard. A front-facing VGA camera and 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with auto-focus and flash. The 1540mAh battery will provides up to eight hours of talk time and 28 days of standby mode (3G).
XT531 will first launch in China in both single sim and dual sim models. And will be later available in other regions of world this year. There is no confirmed price for the handset but Motorolla does promise that it will be low priced for those who don’t want to burn a hole in their pocked by investing in a smartphone.
