Motorola won’t confirm the Droid X2 exists, but we sure can. A favorite tipster has supplied us with some in the wild shots of the Verizon-bound smartphone, including side-by-side comparisons with the original Droid X. Even better? We’ve got video, too.
As you can see, the second iteration of the Droid X series looks almost identical to its predecessor with the only noticeable difference being the removal of the dedicated camera button and a slight color difference. Design-wise the Droid X2 doesn’t bring much that’s new to the table.
There’s also no support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network. However, that may well account for the excellent battery life mentioned to us, battery “far surpassing that of the original Droid X.” 4G is proving to be a battery drain on Verizon’s HTC Thunderbolt, so leaving it off of the X2 may not be such a bad thing.
Droid X2 test units are currently running Android 2.2 Froyo, but apparently it’s not yet been decided if they will ship with 2.3 Gingerbread instead. The X2 you’re looking at is, however, already rocking the newest version of Motoblur.
While we weren’t able to pin down a firm release date, out tipster did mention ‘Mid May.’ Unfortunately, the expected price is still unknown.
We were able to run a Quadrant test, and received a whopping 2453. Yeah, that’s fast…especially for a stock ROM.
So, what do you think of the Droid X2 so far? Disappointed it looks the same? Wish Motorola had gone just a bit further with it? Lack of 4G a battery saver or deal killer?
