Rumor: Sprint working on sequel to the Motorola Photon 4G with LTE

The Motorola Photon 4G is going to get a successor, if the folks over at Pocket Now are correct. According to their sources, Sprint and Motorola are working on releasing a sequel to the high-end Photon 4G. As you remember, the Photon 4G was released in June of 2011 as a high-end device on Sprint’s network. According to Pocket Now, the successor to the Photon 4G will be called the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE, and like its name implies, it will have access to Sprint’s brand-new 4G LTE network, and will most-likely be Motorola’s first 4G LTE phone on the now network.

Specs-wise, nothing is known yet. You can expect the phone to feature a dual or quad-core processor, HD display, 4G LTE connectivity and much more. As far as pricing and release information, nothing is available. Since Sprint is busy rolling out their 4G LTE network, and seeing how they have some 4G LTE phones currently available from Samsung and LG, we wouldn’t be surprised if it was made available before or around the time Sprint lights up its first 4G LTE markets.
