Early reports of a smartphone supposedly headed for Verizon Wireless indicated that the Motorola Droid Shadow will have a 4.1-inch display. New images of this device with other recent models show that its screen could be larger than that.
The HTC EVO 4G has a 4.3-inch display, one of the largest available on a smartphone. In an image that has leaked out comparing these two, the Shadow appears to have a screen at least as large as the one on the HTC model.
More Details on the Motorola Droid Shadow
According to earlier unconfirmed reports, the Droid Shadow will have a high-end feature set, starting with a FWVGA (854×480) touchscreen set in a slim tablet shape without a physical keyboard.
It will debut running Google’s Android OS 2.1 on a 720 MHz Texas Instruments OMAP 3630 processor, and an upgrade to the new Android OS 2.2 is in the offing.
The Motorola smartphone will also allegedly include a new version of MotoBlur, Motorola’s software that brings together messages from a range of social-networking services like Facebook and Twitter, text messages, as well as consumer and business email accounts, into a universal inbox.
The leaked specifications list for the Droid Shadow includes an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p video as well as an HDMI video-out port which will allegedly offer 1080p support.
It will also supposedly include 8 GB of internal storage and be bundled with an 8 GB microSD memory card.
All other specifications for this model remain unknown, but it’s likely to include the features that are typical in other high-end Android OS models, such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a GPS receiver.
Even the name hasn’t been confirmed yet. It’s possible this smartphone will be sold as the Motorola Droid Xtreme.
