Android Flip Phone from Motorola Spotted

Motorola’s MOTODEV site has a new addition, an Android-powered flip phone called the Ming A1680. Traditionally the Ming series has only been available in China, with a single model, the Verizon Krave, being released in the U.S. While the device was first spotted in the wild back in April, its debut on the MOTODEV site gives us the full rundown on its technical specs. Though not a superphone, this device may appeal to current flip phone users that are comfortable with that form factor and want to make the jump to Android.


  • Android 1.6 (no mention of possible future upgrades)
  • 3.1″ 480×800 AMOLED Screen
  • Marvell PXA935 624MHz Processor
  • 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM, 128MB User Storage Available
  • Support for MicroSDHC cards up to 32GB
  • 3 Axis Accelerometer and Magnetometer (No Ambient Light or Proximity Sensors)
  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900 W-CDMA 2100 Voice Bands
  • GPRS/EDGE Class 10 & 12, HSDPA 3.6 Data Support

  • Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP 2.1, FTP, HSP, HFP 1.5 and OPP 1.1 Profiles available

It remains to be seen if Motorola will bring this device to our shores, as the clamshell-touchscreen combination form factor has never caught on here.
