Motorola Droid X 2 on Its Way to Verizon

by Reads (8,146)

Motorola and Verizon are reportedly working on a follow-up to the Motorola Droid X. Exactly what the features of this upcoming high-end Android OS smartphone will be is a matter of debate, though.

One source claims that the Droid X 2 will have a 4.3-inch qHD (540 x 960) display and an 8-megapixel camera.

Motorola Droid X vs. Motorola Droid X 2It will supposedly run Google Android OS 2.2 (Froyo) on a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor with 1GB of RAM. This device will have the MotoBlur user interface layer on top of the standard one.

The only problem with this unconfirmed report is these specs would make the Droid X 2 very similar to the Motorola Droid Bionic. Add support for Verizon’s LTE network and these models would be almost identical.

A Less Powerful Option
According to a second source, the Droid X 2 will be less cutting edge.

It will allegedly have 4.3-inch WVGA (854 x 480) touchscreen, not a qHD one.

And instead of a dual-core processor, this source says it will have  a 1.2GHz single-core one, as well as 768MB of RAM.

If correct, this would make the Droid X 2 a minor “speed bump” increase over the current model.

Coming Next Quarter
Both of these unnamed sources agree that Verizon will release the Motorola Droid X 2 during the second quarter of this year. 

Its price is not yet known.
