German site PhonePads revealed a thorough look at the Motorola Droid 3 over the weekend. Droid fans will be happy to hear that the next-gen handset will come with some considerable upgrades in tow, including:
- 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash
- 1080p HD video recording
- MicroUSB and miniHDMI ports
- Upgraded slide-out QWERTY keyboard (with the alleged five rows we recently heard about – the top two being number only) in addition to a touchscreen keyboard
- Volume keys moved to right side of the device
And just a reminder about the other leaked specs surrounding the Droid 3:
- No LTE capability
- 1GHz dual-core processor
- 4-inch qHD display, 960 x 540 resolution
What OS version the Droid 3 will use is unknown, and considering we last heard it would be released in June, we’re not certain the handset will run Ice Cream Sandwich. Really, we can’t even be certain it’s running Gingerbread, which would be pretty disappointing, but that is the Android way (the lack of 4G is also somewhat discouraging). Of course if you watch the video, take notice of the “Software shown not final, your screens might vary” warning. MotoBlur is Motorola’s custom UI for Android, which has gotten mixed user reactions.
