Nearly rugged Motorola Defy+ officially unveiled: 1GHz chip, running Gingerbread with Motoblur
Right after the big news about getting acquired by Google, Sanjay Jha and company announced the latest addition to their smartphone lineup – the tough and powerful Motorola Defy+. The handset does not only deliver the latest of Android Gingerbread, but just as you'd expect from the successor of the Motorola Defy, it's well built and protected from water, scratch and dust with its IP67 rating. This combined with its 3.7-inch Gorilla Glass-enhanced screen is what makes the phone stand apart. 

Under the hood, the Motorola Defy Plus packs a 1GHz TI OMAP 3620 chip powering Gingerbread 2.3.4. skinned with Motorola's UI skin still referred to as Motoblur. This is a slight upgrade over the original Defy which sported an 800MHz processor and was only updated to Froyo. On the back, there's a 5-megapixel auto-fous camera with flash. A 1700mAh battery allows the phone to last 7.1 hours when talking and 16 days in standby.

Previously, we've heard rumors about AT&T getting the handset stateside, but the official press release doesn't explicitly confirm this. What we know for sure, though, is that the Defy Plus will be made available in Asia, Latin America and Europe this fall.

Too bad the original Defy probably won't get 2.3.

Having a front cam would be a major achievement for Defy+.
