Motorola DROID X successor alleged to feature a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 CPU
In the six months that it has been on the market, the Motorola DROID X continued Android's big push in saturating the market with its larger than life aura – and was undoubtedly one of the high profiled handsets launched this past summer.

When you've got such a popular smartphone like that, there is no arguing that it would eventually be graced with some sort of successor. With that in mind, we're hearing more about the next version of the Motorola DROID X from an unconfirmed report that sheds light on its specs.
 
Obviously, a popular handset like this will see its specs upgraded with the times to keep it on par with the rush of competition that will no doubt bring the heat. Based on an unconfirmed report, the next iteration of the Motorola DROID X is given the codename of “Daytona,” and will sport a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor. Furthermore, we'll see its already high-resolution display be pushed to new boundaries with its 4.3” size and resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. Aside from those two substantial standouts, it's going to feature other niceties like an 8-megapixel camera, 720p video recording, DLNA support, HDMI out port, microSD card slot, and will run Android 2.2 Froyo.

So far it's looking like a normal successive handset, but there is no other information regarding a release date or pricing. Additionally, it would be ever so nice to see a respectable handset like this get the Gingerbread treatment – especially when it's currently out and available.

Have to agree with crispens. That pretty much sounds like the Bionic. Why would Moto put out another phone for Verizon with the same specs?

Droid X 3g, Bionic 4g. There will be a need for 3g for a while. My guess?!?!?

I'm fairly sure that everyone would already know that the "Daytona" is really the Droid Bionic, and that the Bionic is the true successor to the Droid X. Those are the same exact specs as the Bionic.

i agree that the bionic sounds like same specs (although i'm not a fan of tegra... then again i don't game a whole lot) i REALLY hope that the bionic stays the way it is now because the Droid X was not a pretty phone...

I think it’s a great idea. It’s a nice way for nVidia to spotlight games optimized for the Tegra, and I’m happy that they just link through to the marketplace, and not on a proprietary nVidia market. Below link is very useful about this Tegra dual Core phone! http://http://www.motorolaatrixforum.com/motorola-atrix-4g-general-discussion-f12/what-does-tegra-du al-core-phone-mean-t71.html
