And, whoa. You be looking at Motorola’s next big device, called the DROID HD. We’ve seen this name a number of times before, but up until this morning, had not had even a glimpse at what it may look like. Well folks, here you go. Prepare to be blown away by what could be one of the thinnest devices on the planet – one that makes the Bionic look like a thick tank.
The device is said to have a 4.5″ screen (more than likely HD, hence the name), Android 2.3 (stock?), 8MP HD camera, front camera, and HDMI out. There is also a compartment on the side for loading a microSD and SIM card (suggesting non-removable battery), something that would lead us to believe this phone is 4G LTE. We could probably go ahead and assume it’ll run some next-gen dual-core processor, but those specs were not reveiled. Lock switch on the side; same size as the Bionic with a potentially larger screen.
Update: As one dedicated reader (zepfloyd) pointed out, this indeed sounds exactly like the Motorola Dinara we reported on back in July. Our sources said that the device would have an HD screen, lock switch on the side, would be the same size as the Bionic but with a bigger screen, a non-removable battery, and would be much, much thinner. Yep, I’d say this is it.
Update 2: Just heard from our sources that this is not the Dinara. Hoping to have more details soon.
Most importantly though, this phone is unbelievable thin. Let’s jump through a series of photos that compare it to the Bionic, so you can really get a feel for what the DROID HD may be. (more…)
