We had seen a few pictures of a new version of the Motorola Droid X2 a couple of weeks ago, and it looks like it’s getting ready for prime time by going through FCC filing. The filing doesn’t reveal much, other than support for Wi-Fi 802.11n and EV-DO-flavoured 3G, suggesting a release on Verizon.
There are conflicting reports about what the specs will be like on the Motorola Droid X2; one optimistic leakster suggests we’ll see a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a 4.3-inch 960 x 540 display, while others say it will have a more modest 854 x 480 screen, single core 1.2 GHz processor, and only 768 MB of RAM. The slight dissimilarities between the two sets of specs would mean the difference between being a high-end smartphone and a mid-range iterative update.
Considering how much time Motorola must have spent getting the Xoom ready, I wouldn’t be surprised if doing something awesome with their smartphones took the backburner for just a little bit; then again, the Bionic is sounding pretty snazzy, so maybe the Droid 2X will simply be a lower-end counterpoint.
Nothing is official for the Motorola Droid X2 just yet, but we’re expecting it to land sometime in the second quarter.
