Has a Tegra 3 device stopped to pose for a picture?
Last week, Droid-Life passed along speculation about two Tegra 3 devices being developed by Motorola. One device, code-named the Motorola Bullet, has a 4.3 inch qHD display and runs the Tegra 3 (Kal-El) quad-core processor. The unit is equipped with 1 to 1.5GB of DDR2 RAM, a 12MP camera, an NFC chip and 16GB of storage on board. The device is pure rumor at this point and is expected to launch before the second rumored Tegra 3 device, the Motorola Jet. The Jet is basically the same as the Bullet except with a re-designed physical QWERTY with chiclet-style keys. If the heavens align correctly, we could be looking at a Q1 2012 launch for the duo. Oh yeah, both of these models are LTE enabled.

And that brings us to the picture below. It could be one of the two highly speculative phones mentioned above, or it could be something else-or even a fake. Motorola is said to be working on 2 other devices similar to the Jet and Bullet so it could be one of those phones as well. The HDMI and USB ports are in a slightly lower position than seen on the Droid X and the DROID X2 so that rules out those handsets. And it doesn't resemble the Motorola Targa either.

It looks like its time to round up the gang. Fill up the Mystery Van with petrol and grab a box of Scooby snacks. There's a mystery underfoot.

Is this a picture of a Motorola device with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and a 12MP camera?

I don't believe those specs are real. Even so, why bother get a dual core phone now?(Not that there are many anyway)

Why wouldn't it be real? It's for a unit half a year from now. I don't even need a dual core phone now.

My phone runs at 1GHz and I cant find any reason to upgrade, hell i haven't even over clocked it to possible 1.4GHz

Dual cores are so smooth, everything, at least on the g2x, loads up almost instantly. What more will a quad core phone have to offer?

technology is always advancing, you can always wait for the next best thing but as soon as companies release a new product they are developing a new one so you will be waiting forever to get the "next best thing"

with specs this advanced they're going to need to have a powerful network like 4G LTE to really benefit from the extra power otherwise it would be like a Droid X using 2G or something, it wouldn't make any sense.

i've had some time to think about this and i think that these being the 4th gen Droid and a Droid X3 is correct. i don't think Moto would launch a pair of power houses like the Jet and the Bullet after launching the Droid 3 and Targa a few short months before that so now i think these ARE the Droid 3 and Targa redesigned due to the problems Moto seems to be having that got the Etna aborted and renaming the projects "Jet" and "Bullet".

My point is dual core phones arent even standard yet. There's not ONE available through Verizon and they aren't coming to most carriers until the Summer. So when they do, it will only be about 3-4 months until quad core phones come out? From what I understand, android software can't even take advantage of dual core processors until 2.4 and its not even out yet. Phones are still shipping with 2.2 and just a very few are shipping with 2.3 or getting leaked 2.3 updates that arent "official".

The android software can handle well with even just 1ghz processors so does it really need quad core processors yet? I mean at that point, I might as well sell my x-box 360 and ps3 and just play them on my phone with the HDMI port to view them on my TV!

2.3 has the ability to switch cores for apps. thats the only pseudo compatibility with duel cores. angry birds on one core and while your playing the next app will load flawlessly, also allowing you to switch between them better. however in true use of the duel core both cores wont handle the same process for a while. it just can start one process while the other ends making it a bit more efficient .

this is just my understanding from what one motorola tech agent explained to me over the phone when i was asking about the atrix.

oh and for this pic it looks like a dummy phone i saw from my friend in China for a hardware design project. I am not saying that this IS or IS NOT what they claim.

this how the atrix look on the side might be atrix 2 and at&t says lte comes out in the summer so this lines up perfectly as being the Motorola Atrix

its a possibility but also if moto sold docks they should make phone that fit on your docks.... so they are worth the money spent

If this phone is real, then it'll more than likely be just an alpha stage. It could be the successor to the Atrix, bit it could also be a successor in the line of Droid Xs. We'll only know if and when they make it official.

it's motorola, so realistically you're looking at about a year and a half before those actually see a release date.....
