The gadget features 4.3" super AMOLED screen with 960*540 resolution, Google Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” operating system as well as 8MP rear camera with support for high-dynamic range as well as a front camera for video calls. The smartphone comes with 1GB of RAM, but only with 4GB of internal storage. Motorola MT788 features •TD-SCDMA 1880/2010, HSDPA; GSM (900/1800/1900), GPRS/EDGE Class 12 and probably 802.11abgn Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and other features. Motorola does not indicate whether the smartphone supports memory cards as well as near field communication (NFC) technology.

 

The Motorola MT788 features a stylish, sophisticated aluminum body created with an advanced manufacturing process that makes the phone surprisingly strong and thin. The expansive 4.3-inch display is protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass to withstand all kinds of bumps and scratches. Motorola MT788 comes in Licorice and Ultra White, so you can choose the model that reflects your personal style.

Starting from mid-December, Motorola MT788 is available through China Mobile stores across China and authorized Motorola resellers.
