No wonder the internet is keeping an eye out for the Droid X2. The sequel to Verizon’s excellent Droid X smart phone will feature a clearer resolution than most smart phones and a more capable processor, plus it’s rumored to run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
According to Droid Life, the anticipated 4.3-inch follow-up will fly from Verizon’s shelves Thursday, May 26, with a possible pre-order window that opens next Thursday, May 19. The blog previously reported that the phone would ship May 12, but that date was pushed back along with another anticipated Android smart phone, the Droid Bionic. Droid Life’s internal Verizon sources now peg the date of the Droid X2 for next week. Verizon has publicly shared a summer time frame.
Whenever the Droid X2 swoops in, its feature set is sure to impress. Though it will wear the same form factor and frame as the original Droid X, the display will offer a 960 x 540 pixel resolution, a 1-GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, an 8MP camera with 720p video capture, 1080p out via an HDMI port, and 16GB of memory split halved between on-board storage and a pre-installed SD card. There’s been no mention of a 4G LTE radio, but word on the ‘net is that the phone will have the latest Android 2.3 software, which now supports video chat via the Google Talk app.
Will we see this bar-raising Android device soon? Let’s hope so.
