CES hasn't even officially gotten underway and Motorola's already launching not one, but two handsets for the Greater Chinese, European, and Latin American markets. First off we have the higher end of the two, the not quite new Motorola MOTOLUXE -- which we've already seen in China as the XT615 and more recently in the hallowed halls of the FCC -- packing a 4-inch display, 8 megapixel camera with flash, and a nifty lit lanyard slot on the front for email, text, and voicemail notifications. The least dynamic of this duo is the dust-proof, water-resistant, Gorilla Glass-toting DEFY MINI. This downmarket set features a 3 megapixel cam, 3.2-inch display, and a relatively beefy 1650 mAh battery that touts 10 hours talk and 21 days standby time. Sadly there was no mention of pricing, but both devices are slated for February availability in the aforementioned markets. Video and PR after the break.
