New Pictures of the DROIDX2 and Incredible 2 Arrive, No Surprises Revealed

Two of our family members made appearances last night, looking as expected.  The DROIDX2 which is still revealing no signs of ever being 4G LTE or having a front-facing camera, posed for a few pictures, all while showing off the fact that it’s still running Android 2.2.  Other than not having a camera button, you really couldn’t tell the difference between this and the original.  

The Incredible 2 on the other hand, looks like a bigger version of its former self, and that’s a good thing.  As many of you know, this is really just the Incredible S that is already available in Europe, but with Verizon branding.  It has a 4″ Super LCD screen, front and back cameras, 768MB of RAM and a single-core 1GHz processor.  It’s almost like the Thunderbolt, but with a slightly smaller screen, no LTE radio and a newer version of Sense.  I keep saying this, but for those of you that aren’t in an LTE area for the foreseeable future, this should be on your radar.

Still no official word on when either will be available, but current time lines have the Incredible 2 headed to stores at the end of this month (April) with the DROIDX2 following it some time in May.

    I was hoping they would add a front camera for video chat but nope or just general picture taking

    I’m sure the Droid X2 will have Gingerbread. Heck, I already have it on my Droid X, thanks to Droid-Life (and MyDroidWorld).

    Droid X2 seems like a waste of time.

    providing it did what i wanted it to do, and no other phone did the same thing…yes i would be ok with a pink and purple polka-dotted phone…looks are the last thing i look at when comparing phones

    I like the look and feel of the DX/DX2, and I have no complaints with my DX, but I feel like they need to change something, anything, if only to differentiate it from it’s predecessor. Are we sure it’s actually a new phone? I feel like this is a really simple prank and they’re laughing at us for thinking that the same phone is a new version.

      I hope its a prank, i would give moto or whoever did this major props, I dont think they would just realse a phone with the same design that wouldnt be good marketing cuz when your not a spec nerd the same design wouldnt impress you or warent buying a new phone

  • Bogat33

    WTF is the point of the X2? Shit looks the same.

      Agreed!

  • EC8CH

    Interesting that the Dinc Dos lacks any “Sense” branding

  • TheDroidAbides

    While it’s disappointing that the X2 is basically the same phone as the Droid X but with better specs, it’s understandable when you consider that people who bought the original phone last July aren’t the target audience for a refreshed version 9 months later. The original was a success and they don’t want it to get left behind, so a bump in specs helps keep it current, which makes it a decent option for people who are up for an upgrade now and would have upgraded to the original when it came out. Looks like there will be plenty of other options to choose from so there should be something for everyone (unless you really like hardware keyboards).

  • Ballisticn8

    I’d laugh my ass off if all these supposed leaks about the DX2 is just pics of the original DX…

    The phone looks absolutely the same, camera is the same 8.0MP in red with HD VIDEO in white lettering, same button config, hell, my DX with Gingerbread has the same lock screen colors and icons.

      I reeeeeaaaallly hope your right sir.

  • yellophase

    i have the DX and i’m in an LTE area but i wish they would make some 4in LTE phones besides the thunderbolt and other upcoming 4.3in ones.. i dont think i would mind upgrading to the incredible2 just so i can have something with a bit smaller screen size =/

  • Steve H

    They pretty much look the same. Lame.

  • el_R

    i think the inc2 comes with a higher cap battery than the tbolt… i wonder if they will be compatible.

  • Anonymous

    Well no X2 for DX – Moto really knows how to lose loyalty by under delivering to loyal DX crowd

  • http://twitter.com/strikeir13 Keir Stiegler

    That looks like “gingerblur” on the DX2, but definitely not on the Dinc2. Staying optimistic, the DX2 has the data service area blurred up pretty well, so you can’t tell if it says “LTE” or “4G” or “3G” or what… the Dinc2 is not so lucky; plenty of evidence for it being 3G… Since the Dinc2 looks so much like the Bionic, I’m thinking VZW will have to differentiate between the two in a big way, probably being 3G. I’m guessing it becomes a mid-range device as opposed to high-end, regardless of whether it’s dual-core or not.

    I’m hoping the DX2 ends up LTE :) AND COMES WITH A OEM BOOTLOADER UNLOCK OPTION!!!

  • YourMomsTwaht

    ‘Takes a picture of Droid X’ …hey look it’s the Droid X2! yeah, sure.

  • Todroid

    I’m sure I’m in minority here, but I love the form factor of X. The screen to bezel ratio is maximized, it’s rectangular shape is unique, unlike any other phone that have been coming out since. Everything looks like iPhone 3GS these days, with Bionic looking even worse (the gray-black toy color scheme). The hump on the X makes the phone easier to hold while on call, for propping with the index finger. I already have the OEM extended battery that lasts me for over two days, multimedia docks, etc. that I would not have to re-buy. Seems like a marginal upgrade, but for someone who already thinks X is the best implement of the 4.3″ form factor, this upgrade would bring it to the level of the current phones as far as the innards go. And if GingyBlur is the same on this one as on the original X, I’m already running it, with ROMs just a few days away.

      It will be a while. Their offerings for Verizon are 6-9 months after Sprint.

    Dinc2 is looking good to me since I wont see 4g for a while. Now let’s see the off-contract price.

  • Kierralj

    I wonder if they used refurbished X’s and gave them new innards….

    • Kierra

      Gonna be my own grammar police and take out that apostrophe

      • PyroHoltz

        Might want to remove the apostrophe after the X as well. Looks lame but it should read, …refurbished Xs…

        Just imagine you wrote, refurbished Droids, not Droid’s. It’s not possessive, nor are you creating a contraction.

          When writing numbers or single letters, there is an apostrophe. Example: 2′s, X’s.

            Did you read the comments before commenting? I did not correct the grammar
            of the OP. Someone else tried to correct him. I just pointed out that the OP

            I see you stay true to your name. I respect that.

          • PyroHoltz

            I’m not entirely convinced that’s true.

            Apostrophes are used to form plurals of letters that appear in lowercase; here the rule appears to be more typographical than grammatical, e.g. “three ps” versus “three p’s.” To form the plural of a lowercase letter, place ‘s after the letter. There is no need for apostrophes indicating a plural on capitalized letters, numbers, and symbols (though keep in mind that some editors, teachers, and professors still prefer them)

            source: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/621/01/

            But, maybe this has already gone too far.

          • Anonymous

            to expand on this…to remove the apostrophe would be to make plurlizing -es…so it would be 2es or Xes not 2s or Xs…which isnt correct…

    Sorry, but the that looks like the original Droid X. I find it hard to believe that Verizon will release the new Droid X2 without making ANY changes to the body. Just because the camera button isn’t visible doesn’t mean that it’s not there.

    I think it’s just a prototype DX. Someone took pics, leaked to Android Central, and everyone drools. :-)

  • Interstellarmind

    not trying to be a hater… but based on what we’ve got so far… these both seem like lame updates. looking forward to the bionic (or, maybe, htc’s next dual core offering on v erizon)

  • Igor

    DINC2 is truly an upgrade to DInc (Size, has a FF camera, Global) I don’t know about under the hood changes. How different is DX2 from DX

    • Tim242

      qHD 960 x 540 screen, rumored dual core. Not enough for an upgrade. Someone looking for those would probably opt for the Bionic.

    • Anonymous

      The Inc2 is basically the Thunderbolt with a smaller screen and no LTE.

      The X2 has a Tegra 2, qHD screen and probably 1 GB ram.

  • http://twitter.com/HumanRacehorses Harold Goldner

    If you’ve got an Incredible, chances are you’ve upgraded your handset within the last year. the Incredible 2 is not worth the update. Sense 2.0 will be cooked into Incredible ROM’s before very long; and there will be better LTE phones out there in the next 6-9 months. This device is for the folks who missed out on the first Incredible.

    physically keyboards, single cores.. ha haaa ha ha haa

    • Anonymous

      What are you talking about?

      • FortitudineVincimus

        here.. let me splain it to you

        the Inc2 is single-core, not double core processor – (plus smaller screen and no LTE) – so no thanks

        the DROIDX2 has a dual-core, but I understood it, like the D1 and D2, had a physical slide out keyboard which I might have been wrong about it appears. however, no front facing camera and comes with 2.2 – so no thnaks

        the overall point was.. neither are of interest to me

          lol….ok just get your facts straight next time

        • Anonymous

          The X2 does not have a physical keyboard, how clueless are you? The Inc2 also has a 4″ screen, that’s an upgrade to the original Inc’s 3.7″.

  • Skaguyy

    There isn’t 4g in my area and won’t be for quite sometime. As someone who wants that FFC, the Incredible 2 is looking pretty close to what I’m looking for

    Real question is whether or not to wait for the Samsung Galaxy S2…as much as I hate Samsung, it is looking beastly.

    • AnimalPak

      That isn’t even a question in my mind. The GS2 has the complete list of hardware specs. Android 2.3 with Touchwiz 4.0 doesn’t look bad either. Getting any other phones that is out now or is coming out in the following few months would only be downgrading.

      • Anonymous

        providing samsung has learned how to perform OTAs, without breaking features on the phone…

    • Anonymous

      I don’t have 4G either and I’m trying to wait to upgrade my Droid. Since I won’t be using 4G there are other specs that are more important to me. I like this phone, but both the EVO3D and “Pyramid” sport 1.2Ghz Dual-Core w/ QHD screens. I’m going to wait for a similar phone on Verizon.

      However, if I couldn’t wait or had to pick soon to replace my Droid, I would get the Incredible 2 because its specs look solid and no 4G in my area anyway.

    Hah. The X2 has sexy blur on 2.2…. Didn’t think that was possible hehe

  • Tory

    Uuuuhhh, the X2 clearly has 2.2.3/Gingerbread on it.

    • Tim242

      Nope, it’s FroYo with the new Blur.

  • LivinFree

    Both epic failures IMO and a total waste of an upgrade unless you are on a way old Android device.

    BTW the pic of X2 is running Gingerbread and not Froyo. Some of these sites need to seriously get the facts straight before posting. Just look at the status bar and you’d know this.

    • Tim242

      It is not Gingerbread. It is FroYo with the new Blur. The DX2 is not worth an upgrade. However, the DINC2 is. It adds a bigger screen, a better screen, a front cam, more RAM, newer processor, and will most definitely get updated.

      • Anonymous

        You didn’t look at the status bar did you. I know the about page says it’s android 2.2 but the status bar has no AM/PM next to the clock, that is only a gingerbread thing. Very odd.

            No, my brother has a Droid X and it has the AM/PM. I’ve never seen an android rom based on 2.2 or lower(including roms that try to mimic 2.3) without it.

      From what I’ve read that’s actually a disadvantage requiring more power usage. When phones do simultaneous data and voice over LTE they’ll be more power efficient.

    I currently have a DX and wouldn’t buy the DX2 just because it looks exactly the same. I like to get something that looks different when I upgrade. This was the reason I didn’t get the D2 when it was time to upgrade from the original Droid.

      That seems kind of petty to me. Get the phone because it provides what you want it to do, not because it looks different.
