Throwback to the Motorola Atrix 4G, world’s 2011 “most powerful smartphone”
If we were talking about jaw dropping specifications on smartphones these days, we won’t be mentioning a fingerprint scanner or octa core CPU anymore because, let’s face it, event though these were the in-thing for a time, we can now get these features on even the mid-range devices. Looking back at how far technology has gone and how well the world of smartphones has progressed, one cannot but remember the 2011 Motorola Atrix 4G which was marketed then as the most powerful smartphone in the world and it indeed was then with its dual core processor.
Like today’s smartphones, the Atrix 4G had a fingerprint scanner on it but unlike the phones we see these days, its wasn’t on the rear but on the front and embedded in a home button. This scanner was so bad that it took smartphone makers two years before they had the courage to try biometrics again. So much was the hate the manufacturers themselves had for this feature that they decided to ditch it when they were making a sequel.
The Atrix 4G however had 4 inches and its CPU was set at 1GB of RAM, using a 5MP camera on the back and adorning its fronts with an 0.3MP shooter. Looking at that and seeing how well the industry has improved now, we are surely in the jet age where everything moves fast.
