DROIDX2 Launching May 26th with Dual-core Processor, qHD Screen and Gingerbread

The Motorola DROIDX2 was rumored to originally be scheduled to release today, but with the push back of the DROID Charge, we were wondering if it hadn’t been pushed back as well.  According to Verizon, that is definitely the case.  The new date for the launch of Verizon’s first dual-core Tegra 2 Android beast will be May 26th with direct fulfillment orders starting on May 19th (which we’re thinking means a pre-order is on the way).

The device will as you all know, have a 4.3″ qHD screen with a resolution of 960×540, dual-core Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz, 8MP rear camera, 720p video capture, 1080p out, 8GB of internal storage, an 8GB pre-installed SD card, and a 1540mAh battery.

Oh and did I mention Gingerbread (Android 2.3) in the title?  If you look at the screen featured above and you own an original DROIDX, then you’ll recognize that blue top bar as being 2.3.  And this only makes sense, especially with the possibly of GB rolling out to the original this week – we wouldn’t want last year’s model having a newer operating system than the freshly released version, would we?  

*Note – I do want to point out that the Bionic we saw at CES had the same blue Blur and was only running 2.2, but I can’t imagine this would be the case here.

Update 5/12:  Just in case you needed anymore confirmation (via @TheDroidGuy):

Cheers ___!

    No lte and encrypted bootloader. Fail. Weak. Who would buy a 3g phone when 4g is same price, even if 4g isn’t in your area yet

     i just want another droid running the newst android and it running vanilla android. a 1 dual core a 5mp camera or better hd 1080 video and front facing camera. oh and a keyboard

  • SoonerLater

     I’m sorry, but how exactly is this better than the original Droid-X? A marginal increase is not worth the cost of upgrade. I am dumbstruck that they didn’t see fit to include a front-facing camera. #FAIL

    The Droid X2 is perfect replacement or me for my Droid X at this time. I want a unit that has a better screen, more ram a dual core CPU, Gingerbread OS and only 3G network capability. My area will not be scheduled for upgrading to $g network for 12-24 months from now. This unit will give me the maximum features until I have to upgrade to 4G.

    Can you talk and surf at the same time?

       Pretty sure that requires LTE, so no.  LTE is fully packet-based, unlike CDMA or whatever (I’m not an expert.)

      • JohnPA2006

        Waknatious is correct, only 4G phones at this time for Sprint and Verizon are able to do this.
        and this is only able to happen in the 4G coverage areas only. If your phone shows the 3G icon
        you will not not be able to talk and browse at the same time. 
        4G is cool but anyone with a 4G capable phone will tell you if left enabled all the time, it eats your battery up like rosie o donnel in a twinkie factory…. WHAT !!!

    This seems identical to the Bionic. hmmm ok.. so the only difference between the two will be the 4G? pffft

    Shame they left off the FF camera.  It’s becoming a required spec regardless of how much it is actually used.  I would imagine this will cement DInc 2 as the Verizon 3G phone to get among average consumers (who don’t root or rom).

    Wow, looks to me like Droid is the one to watch. Wow.

    I’d buy it if it was 4g.

      4G is nice but you would have to carry a car battery under your other arm.
      Between the dual core cpu, huge screen, and4G your battery will take a beating.

      This phone is the bee’s knee’s

     Droid 2X looks nice but so does the Atrix, LG G2X, AND SAMSUNG GS2, all of which except  the droid X2 has front facing camera, ( not realy adeal breaker) but have 4G on there respective networks ( albeit GSM). Given the fact that Verizon is flaunting they will have the first full LTE nationwide network by 2013 covering 95% of there footprint, which is at-least 2 yrs quicker than there nearest competitor and only 1 yr and a half away, so why doesn’t the Droid X2 have LTE built in? Simple Marketing/profiting ! Get them to fork out money now for this phone and in 1 yr we’ll release the same phone again just with LTE built in and get them to buy it all over again. come on people wake up and smell the conspiracy in selective Marketing
