One of Motorola’s Android phones that appeared in China first, the XT701, will be released in South Korea next month via SK Telecom (the country’s largest mobile operator), under a different name: Motorola XT720.
According to Telecoms Korea, the XT720 will be South Korea’s first Android phone – so last year’s rumors seem to be more than just rumors after all.
Like the XT701 for China, Motorola XT720 features Android 2.0, a 3.7 inch WVGA touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and HDMI port. The XT720 also features mobile TV (T-DMB) and an 8MP photo camera with autofocus and flash.
Including the Motorola XT720, SK Telecom plans to launch about 13 Android phones this year. Its main rival, KT (which is the only carrier that sells the iPhone in Korea), will also introduce several Android handsets.
