droid x

Just as with the original Droid, Motorola is planning to follow up the Droid X with an even more powerful device, in this case a superphone on the same level as the Bionic. Although it looks virtually the same as its predecessor, there are a few noteworthy changes:

  • 1 GHz dual core Tegra 2 processor
  • 4.3" qHD (960 x 540) display
  • 8 megapixel rear  camera
  • Android 2.2 with new version of MOTOBLUR
  • 1 GB RAM

Unfortunately, not everything has been upgraded: the bootloader is still locked, which makes the possibility of a more open Atrix/Droid Bionic a little less likely. The phone will also be lacking 4G LTE connectivity.

It is expected to launch in Q2 of this year, so hopefully Motorola will be smart enough to have it running Gingerbread by then, even if it's buried under that updated version of MOTOBLUR.

    4G or 1Gb. Bionic or DX2. Seems so stupid imho, why make two phones with such a small delineator.

    No 4G and no front facing camera? Why would anyone pick this over the Bionic?

  • mort

    This is just a Droid X running Gingerbread. There is NO way that Moto would put out an X2 that looked EXACTLY like the DX.

    • Eric

      Except for the missing camera button

  • ewtwrt

    they should easily expire this release and consider the bionic a droid x2>>> put the dual core processor in it and wah la

    • Eric

      Put the dual core in what? The Bionic and the "DX2" are both dual core...

      Looks like the logic goes this:

      Droid Bionic = Droid 4G
      Droid X2 = Well, it's the Droid X2

      Just wait a little bit longer and they drop in a keyboard and boom, here we go, the Droid 3.

    This is a Droid X1 running gingerbread, not the X2.

    • Eric

      Like the other person with that exact same comment, your not noticing the missing camera button...

        On my DX, I can BARELY see the camera button looking at it face on. So if they were holding it at a little bit of an angle for the first picture (and the persons finger is over the spot where the camera button would be in the 2nd) it's entirely possible it's just out of sight.
        I'm not saying it IS a DX, just saying it's possible.

        • Eric

          It looks like it's at an angle in the first, and we should see a small bump. I definitely don't think it's an X

    Got any mAh on the battery? It would be horrible if it was the same 1530 mAh as the original. If it wants to compete with the BIONIC, then it needs A.) 1900 mAh and B.) 1080p video recording (since the BIONIC does 720p.)

    Just a question . Couldn't this be Motorola Milestone X ? The equivalent of Droid X for GSM-based networks ?

    I do love my Droid X BUT Motorolla SUCKS. No zoom on video...no front facing camera...and tons of software issues...(been replaced 7x in a year). AND now they are putting out a second one with NO 4G and no front camera...Come on Motorolla. Stop trying to make quantity and start making Quality
