Photos of two highly interesting handsets leaked today - the unannounced Motorola ROKR E7 and ROKR E8. The ROKR series traditionally includes music-oriented handsets and obviously these two will not stray away from the pack either.
The Motorola ROKR E8 is an ultra thin bar shaped handset with Java/Linux-based interface. So far specs are really far from detailed but as far as a Chinese website conveys it we should expect 2GB of integrated memory and a microSD memory card slot. It also has a 2 megapixel camera (no auto focus, sorry!) and loads of touch-sensitive keys. As usual for Motorola a miniUSB port is also available. As a true music handset it also comes with a standard 3.5 mm audio jack.
Motorola ROKR E8 - looks pretty real
The keypad is entirely touch-sensitive but for every key there is a small bud which helps tactile orientation. Sounds interesting, enough, we would say - looking forward to hearing more details from Motorola themselves.

The Motorola ROKR E7 is the other leaked device, which doesn't seem as real as the E8, though - so bear in mind that it just might turn out a hoax. The expected specs are way pumped up - touch-screen TFT display with a VGA resolution, a 5 megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom and xenon flash, GoForce 5500 graphics accelerator, GPS, Wi-Fi and 2GB of internal memory, just to mention a few. And all that is packed into a body standing at only 14 mm thickness. Well, looking at it sounds more of a fat lie if you ask us. Never mind, take a look at this baby.
