Motorola announced its much-rumored Atrix HD today exclusively for AT&T’s LTE network.

The smartphone, previously codenamed “Dinara” among the blogosphere, sports a Kevlar backing and 8.4mm-thick body, while the specs include a 1780mAh battery, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, and a 4.5-inch, 720p HD display with Motorola’s ColorBoost. It also boasts a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera that shoots 1080p, 30 fps video, and it even comes quipped with an HDMI-out port.

This $99.99 device, on a two-year contract, sports Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the gate. Oh, and it arrives July 15 in Modern White and Titanium flavors.

The press release is below (via MarketWatch).

Motorola announced its Dinara smartphone— officially known as the “xT928” – for China Telecom last November, but a supposed press leak of the AT&T variation just surfaced stateside.

The Verge received a media shot of the rumored device today (above). As the report noted, the assumed Atrix 2 successor boasts a 720p display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and 4G LTE. The notable feature, however, is not really a feature at all: the Dinara lacks physical home buttons on the front display. Much is unknown about the smartphone this point; even its name is not set in stone. However, the “July 26” stamp within the date widget might finally give a hint as to when this device will launch.

Google closed its $12.5 billion Motorola Mobility acquisition last Month when China gave the merger an overdue go-ahead. Motorola promptly filed an 8-K form with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and the deal’s transaction finalized shortly after. It appears the Dinara’s software and user-interface is unaffected by the recent Google buyout and will likely sport a Motoblur flavor.
