    A couple of weeks back we reported on rumors about Motorola’s future line-up of Android-based smartphones, led by the Vanquish, Asanti, and Dinara. And while the first two were just about confirmed as coming soon, the third one, rumored to be Moto’s future AT&T flagship, was covered in utter mystery.

    We are now happy to inform you that at least part of that mystery has now been vanquished (no pun intended), and we’re pretty sure we will be seeing the Dinara released very soon. The phone, also known as the Atrix 3 or the MB886, has just been spotted gaining FCC approval, so a launch over the next couple of months is not just possible, but very probable.

    As usual, FCC’s internal certification documents don’t provide us with much insight on the future device’s tech specs and features, but at least we now know the Dinara is coming and will hit AT&T (the MB886 codename and the 4G LTE support are clear indicators of that).

    The Atrix 3 (or whatever Moto will end up calling it) will come with HSPA+/WCDMA 850/1900 support, as well as quad-band EDGE, while anything beyond that is pure speculation at this time. Be that as it may, we still find ourselves obliged to tell you that we’re expecting Moto’s future flagship to come with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, a 4.3-inch touchscreen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, 1 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear-facing camera and the running of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

    We’re keeping our fingers crossed for a more generous battery than the 1,785 mAh unit featured on the second-edition Atrix (maybe something closer to the one on the Razr Maxx), while in terms of design, we’re expecting Moto to step it up a bit from last year’s Atrix 2.

    Are you excited about the upcoming Dinara (aka Atrix 3 aka MB886)?

      at least return the battery size to that of the original atrix if anything…finger scanner would be nice, and make the design nice and let the phone be a little lighter this time…
