The successor to the Motorola Droid X was initially rumored to be launching yesterday, May 12th. Yesterday has since come and gone and still now Droid X2. Now Droid-Life seems to have uncovered some internal promotional material that suggests that Verizon will be launching the DX2 on May 26th with “direct fulfillment orders” (pre-orders, maybe?) starting on May 19th.
The Droid X2 will have a 4.3″ qHD screen with a resolution of 960×540, dual-core Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz, 8MP rear camera, 720p video capture, 1080p out, 8GB of internal storage, an 8GB pre-installed SD card, and a 1540mAh battery. And it’s also been well established that it will not be a 4G LTE phone, so 3G only.
The qHD screen and the dual core processor are the two key changes in this incarnation of the Droid X – nothing else has changed much, as it looks EXACTLY like the first generation Droid X (minus a dedicated camera button).
Droid-Life has also speculated that it will come loaded with Gingerbread (Android 2.3). They came to this conclusion because of a document that shows the DX2 as having the same blue top bar and overall theme as the Droid X version of Gingerbread has (see image below). Although Pocketnow.com’s spec sheet shows that the DX2 will ship with Froyo. We’ll see…
So if you absolutely love the Droid X but wish its screen was a little better and that it was just a bit faster, May 26th looks like it might be the day to mark on your calendar.
