Check out the recently announced Motorola Motoluxe

Last week, Motorola announced that it was launching two new phones for its Latin American, European, and Chinese markets, the Motorola Motoluxe and Motorola Defy Mini. We got a chance to play with both today (we’ll bring you the hands-on video of the Motorola Defy Mini) in a bit.

The Motorola Motoluxe is a nice-looking budget Android phone that is going to soon be available to many people outside of the U.S. It features a 4-inch display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 1GHz single-core processor, front and rear-facing cameras, and more. In addition, the phone also has a lanyard slot that also doubles as the notification light, a pretty neat-looking feature (I like notification lights on phones).

There’s no telling if the phone will ever be released in the United States. If it does, it will most likely be re-branded as something else. You can expect the Motoluxe this spring in Greater China, Latin America, and Europe.

What do you guys think about the Motoluxe? Is it a phone that you would like to see on U.S. shelves at some time in the future? Let us know by dropping a comment below.
