Well, well, well... look what our friends over at Techno Buffalo have come across - the Droid X2! One of their loyal tipsters has sent in some really great pictures of the DX2, including side-by-side shots with the original Droid X. And as if that weren't enough, they even grabbed a quick video of this upcoming monster performing a Quadrant benchmark. I know you're probably frothing at the mouth to see that, so it's first in line:

Did you see that score? Yeah, that was huge. Of course, I would expect nothing less, considering some of the rumored specs:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 768MB RAM
  • 4.3 inch qHD screen (960x540)
  • 8MP Camera
  • Android 2.2.2

According to Techno Buffalo, it has yet to be decided whether it will ship with Gingerbread. If not, though, I would expect an update shortly after release.

As you can tell, it looks a lot like the original X, which made me skeptical about the legitimacy of past leaks. Fortunately, the tipster also decided to take some shots of the X2 next to its predecessor, which makes me more of a believer than ever before.

As you can see, the main difference between the two is the lack of a hardware camera button on the X2.

Even though it's running Froyo, it looks like it's rocking the newest version of Blur - the same edition seen in early leaks of Gingerbread for the original Droid X.

While Verizon has yet to announce the device, TB's tipster suggested a release date of "mid-May," which can't come soon enough for me. I think I've found my next phone.
