More DROID X 2 pics available, scheduled for Q2 Verizon release

More DROID X 2 pics available, scheduled for Q2 Verizon release
More pics of the upcoming successor of the Motorola DROID X are available, as well as some conflicting reports about its specs.

Three days ago we told you about the existence of the so-called Motorola DROID X 2 "Daytona", as well as some of its rumoured specifications, including the 4.3-inch screen with qHD resolution (540 x 960), the 1GHz dual-core Tegra processor and the 8MP camera.

Now, however, a tipster has told Engadget that this DROID X 2, a.k.a. DROID X "squared", is little more than a refreshed DROID X - it's claimed this handset will pack the same 4.3-inch screen with WVGA resolution, 1.2GHz single-core processor and 768MB of RAM.

Both sources say the same thing, though - it's set to grace the Verizon shelves in Q2 of 2011 and it won't support LTE.

First the droid 2 "update" which barely was. Now this. If it is just a simple refresh it's a sign of moto getting lazy.

Pricing move, X2 would go for $150 or $200, while the Bionic goes for $200 or $250.

I suppose they'd save on production costs by keeping the same packaging and display, but calling this the X2 or X^2 is deceptive at best. If anything, it looks like they're just dropping in the 1.2 Ghz processor from the D2 Global. At least the Droid 2 significantly upgraded the processor and memory over the Droid. This is nothing more than a midlife refresh.

Same as the Droid 2 refresh...here's your 1.2 processor versus your 1 Gig processor. I'm sure it will have other "little" additions and updates. Of course, none of the info out yet is solid, so I wouldn't soil my shorts on this one.

This is deffinitely not the droid x 2, or atleast the specs are wrong, I work for a retailer and a loose lipped employee of alcatel lucent described testing a droid x 2 with a dual core processor and LTE...if these listed specs are true this phone might beat the kins for fastest cycle out of rotation

I think there's still confusion out there between the Droid X2 and the Bionic. The specs that keep getting quoted (4.3" screen, Tegra 2, LTE) match the Bionic. Maybe Motorola will refresh the X with extra memory and the faster processor, but it is NOT a new phone. Sounds like a Droid X+ to me.

actually it is the same phone verizon and retailers ran out of 8g internal memories and now are putting out 2g internal memories in the new version
