The MT915 also packs in a whopping 13MP camera at its back, which is also capable of recording videos in full HD (1080p) resolution.

Motorola MT917 is everything you could ask for – fast, beautiful and smart. It’s the phone I’ve been dreaming of since I first entered the mobile device business.said Frank Meng, corporate vice president and president of Motorola Mobility, China. MT917 is part of Motorola Mobility’s tradition of introducing top-of-the-line devices tailored for China and we’re thrilled to release it on China’s high-speed TD-SCDMA network.

The MT915 is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core SoC processor from TI, packs 1GB of RAM, has a back cover made of Kevlar, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The handset will also come with Motorola’s MotoCast app, which allows you to stream music, pictures and much more right from your PC to your handset.
