Motorola has announced that it will be selling the successor to the popular DEFY phone, the Motorola DEFY+, to Australians customers on Telstra. Despite hardware upgrades, it still retains its water-resistant, scratch-resistant and dust-proof body.
The phone features a 1GHz processor, a 3.7-inch touchscreen display with Corning Gorilla Glass, and 2GB of internal memory that is expandable with a microSD card. The phone also has a 5-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus, flash and digital zoom with no front-facing camera. The phone runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread with MOTOBLUR and has support for Adobe Flash Player 10.
The battery life is said to be 7.1 hours of talk time and 16 days in standby mode.
The phone has been certified by Telstra’s BlueTick, meaning that it can be used in rural and regional mobile coverage areas. The predecessor, DEFY, was also given a BlueTick before being revoked by Telstra due to a manufacturing change.
Telstra will be selling the phone on its $49 Freedom Connect Plan with $7 monthly repayment that includes 1GB of data. The repayments reduce slightly until when you reach its $79 Freedom Connect Plan that includes 2GB of data. Prepaid customers will also be able to get the phone outright for $299 with its Cap Encore plans.
