Android Benchmark Confirms Tegra 2 Processor and qHD Screen for DROID X2?

The DROIDX2 appears to have been benchmarked over at Nenamark recently, possibly confirming that it will have a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, which is news we first reported on back in January.  It is also showing up with a screen resolution of 960×540 which would suggest that it will have the same qHD screen that will accompany the DROID BIONIC and the rest of Motorola’s new high-end devices.  This is good news for a device that was really just looking like a small re-hash of last year’s uber successful original DROIDX.

Oh, and about that rumor that it will be a 4G LTE device – I’m still not ready to buy into that idea.  Could we still be on for a May release though?  Wouldn’t surprise me.

    Does it have dual cameras and a big speaker on the back like the Thunderbolt? Because, if so, I might consider buying it and staying in the X family, instead of going with the Bionic?

    Im really sick of the physical buttons. Im not getting another X.

    I’m going to be optimistic and take this as an encouraging sign for the Droid3 as well.

      I would imagine the Droid 3 will probably follow the X2 and/or Bionic within a month after.

    what does the score mean? What will this do in quadrant standard

    • Anonymous

      It has a Tegra 2 so look at the Atrix scores.

    I like the idea of a Droid X2, however I hope the rumor of them removing the camera button isn’t true. I know some people don’t care, but the camera button is nice, and if you don’t use it for the camera you can always remap the button to open your favorite app with a long press.

    I’m going to say may for the bionic and august for the dx2

    Android Benchmark? This is a SCORE!! Kellex, I see your articles using Benchmark like it’s the hip new term.

    bench·mark/ˈbenCHˌmärk/Verb: Evaluate or check (something) by comparison with a standard: “we are benchmarking our performance against external criteria”.
    Noun: A standard or point of reference against which things may be compared or assessed.

    Amazed the specs are going to line up so close even without 4G. I wonder if there will be other differentiators then, like Bionic having the “webtop” OS and the X2 not. Seems to odd that they would not do something big to differentiate their flagship phone other than just 4G.

      hmmm… if memory serves the old x and the atrix have their usb and hdmi plugs in the same arrangement. I’d be suprised if they didn’t do webtop for the x2. Sell more accessories if they are compatible with more devices. still hate at&t for getting motorola to only have their phone have a gig of ram.. then again… how much ram is the x2 supposed to have ? :)

      • Anonymous

        Moto said all their future high end phones will have Webtop so I would image the X2, Droid 3 and Bionic will all end up with 1 GB of ram.

        • Anonymous

          Motorola’s website already says 512

          • Anonymous

            I know but webtop needs more than 512. Motorola could easily change it, that’s why I said they would end up with 1 GB if they end up with webtop.

    As one of the pundits in the LTE rumors. I still have hope. I will be the first to come flying out with the “I told ya so.” If wrong, I will hide and cower in the corner… lol

      Are you one of the pundits in the LTE rumours? I get that idea, for some reason . . .

    No way this sees the light of day before the Bionic. I will be very surprised. Bionic is Motorola’s flagship product which is where they will want the focus and sales. Also seems unlikely they will run a sequel to X until they cross a full year run first or close to it.

    • The Observer

      It’s been 9 months since the DX was released, so it’s close to a year now.

      Motorola will take money however they can get it.

  • Nybandit2000

    For me this is good news. I want to upgrade my DX and get my last new every two (in July) and don’t want to buy new accessories again! I don’t expect to see 4g LTE in my area for a couple years so that is not a factor for me. I am happy with my DX but the better processor and screen will be a nice upgrade for now.

  • Kdkinc

    Hope the new Rugged Hard Shell case for my current DroidX fits the X2.

    • Nybandit2000

      I believe it should. From what I have seen the only difference is the removal of the dedicated camera button.

    Nexus S trinity???

    • http://twitter.com/Ghub1 Chris Ghubril

      Sounds kind of epic. Maybe a dual core version of the Nexus S!? Just my guess though.

      • Anonymous

        tri-core would more appropriate, no?

        • The Observer

          Trinity as in this would be the third Nexus device.

          • Anonymous

            That would make more sense as long as you count the all the different Nexus
            S devices as one.

    • Anonymous

      I know there is a Nexus S Trinity kernel out there from developers, which I assumed is what that was referring to. Could be wrong…

      • The Observer

        Nexus S Trinity sounds pretty bad-ass. If it’s a real device it sure would be nice if it came to VZW.

          Meh, PowerVR 540. I’ll hold out for a Power VR543 or a Mali 400 (which is looking to be the next big thing).

          • Anonymous

            Samsung’s Exynos in the SGS2 has a Mali 400 and it’s scoring pretty low on all preliminary benchmarks, lower than the Tegra 2. The OMAP4 is currently the fastest processor available outside of the SGX543 in the A5.

          My guess is that it is a ROM on a Nexus S that changes the build.prop to read “Nexus S Trinity.”

      • http://twitter.com/Chasemanhattan3 Chase Chick

        If this is a real device, and it’s coming to verizon, that is my next phone. Unlocked bootloader is all important. I refuse to sit and wait for updates to Android while the carrier/manufacturers stick their thumbs up each others butts. I mean good lord, has anyone even played with a Nexus S? Does a millionth of a nanosecond really matter in terms of navigating around on the phone?

        GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!!!

    This is really going to make it hard to switch over to HTC. If only they wouldnt lock their bootloaders! DAMN YOU MOTOROLA

      HTC is locking their stuff down as well.

  • Blackmar_cdla

    when will the boinic be released? i was hoping for mid april, but i don’t know anymore.

    • LivinFree

      June at best on the Bionic. Last I was told tho is more like July with the troubles they are still having with it.

      As for this X2 what a waste of time and money. Why anyone would waste an upgrade on this unless you are on an old device like the D1 makes absolutely no sense. Anyone with a brain will wait until later in the yr to update as there will be much better things on the way. And by then maybe Moto can get bugs worked out of there new high-end devices that will run on LTE.

        “Last I was told…” that must have been a while ago because it is not that far off and the problems are being worked out. Q2 is firm.

        Huh? It has a dual core cpu and high res screen. Most anyone would be pretty happy with those specs. Try again.

        The X2 will be out in May or June.
