Motorola Atrix HD appears on Moto’s website, packs 4.5-inch screen, Android 4.0, and a 1.5 GHz processor

Motorola hasn’t officially announced the Atrix HD, but that didn’t stop the company from putting up a full landing page on its website revealing press photos and specs for the device. Based on the photos and the landing page for the device, we now know pretty much everything you’d want to know about the phone other than price and release date.

The Atrix HD is Motorola’s third Atrix, but the design appears to have more in common with the Droid Razr. It has the same Kevlar backing, protruding upper lip to house an 8 MP camera, and a slim build. The most noticeable difference is that the Atrix HD has more of a curve to its edges and it’s as sharp.

As for specs, there’s plenty for Motorola to rest its hat on. The Atrix HD has a 4.5 “HD ColorBoost” TFT LCD display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. The phone has a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory and a microSD slot that supports up to 32 GB. The phone also has support for Webtop and the most recent Motorola Lapdock accessory.

Looking at the press photos, the thing that most catches my eye is that there don’t appear to be any hardware buttons. The Atrix HD ships with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and the promo photo shows back, home, and task shortcuts along a virtual nav bar that is overlaid on the wallpaper. It’s a very interesting departure from what we typically see from Motorola.

The landing page has been taken down, but I saved the specs page and was able to copy these highlights:

  • 8 MP camera with LED flash, 1.3 MP front-facing camera
  • LTE compatible and 4G Mobile Hotspot capable
  • 3 microphone audio capture with CrystalTalk PLUS noise reduction
  • Android 4.0 ICS
  • 1 GB RAM, 8 GB ROM, 32 GB microSD card
  • 1.5 GHz Dual core processor
  • 1780 mAh battery
