Moto QA4 Lux and QA1 Leak
Motorola is near launching a trio of phones that will be headlined by a rare full touchscreen device, a set of leaked shots at Mobile-Review show. The QA4 will have a 2.8-inch, 240x400 touchscreen with a number pad slider. Few other details have escaped, though the phone will have a tilt sensor and will support CDMA plus EVDO, pointing to a release on Sprint or Verizon.
The company has largely limited its touchscreen phones to its MING phones for the Chinese market as the KN4 Krave, which is based on the same design.
Other phones are conventional: the VE66 Lux is a gold-look version of the original model and has the same 5-megapixel camera, 3G over HSPA and the same contextual touch-sensitive directional pad as the ROKR E8. The QA1 in turn appears a GSM version of the QA30 Hint with a slightly redesigned look for its slide-out QWERTY design and AT&T branding.
Release information doesn't accompany the leaks, though the slips have appeared just a few days before Mobile World Congress, which should see most major phone producers launching new products. [via Unwired View]
