Motorola Droid 3 Parts Show Up With Suppliers


Motorola’s Droid 3 turned up in a couple pics last month, with a new, larger screen. Details on the smartphone are still sparse, but there’s some new evidence suggesting that a release could be nearer than we might have thought, as a supplier of OEM phone components has the whole Droid 3 screen assembly up for sale.

According to Global Direct Parts, the Droid 3 will expand the 3.7-inch screen on previous Droids to a little-more-modern four inches, along with a bump to qHD resolution. This will also be the first of the basic Droid models to include a front-facing camera for video chats.

Now, for the confusing part: GDP lists this part as the “OEM Motorola Droid 3, Motorola Targa LCD and Digitizer Assembly”. While the Droid 3 is a QWERTY slider, there’s no indication from the pictures we’ve seen that the Targa will be anything but a standard slate. Why, then, is this whole assembly, including the Droid 3-specific body pieces, labeled as also being for the Targa?

There’s a chance that “Targa” may not mean what we’ve been thinking, as more and more Motorola smartphone seem to be tied to the title; Motorola has been adamant about not cancelling the Droid Bionic, and news of its overhaul has us thinking it may simply end up taking what we knew as the Targa and calling it the Bionic. What we can say for sure is that this Droid 3 component looks like it will go a long way towards modernizing the brand while keeping the same basic form as the Droid and Droid 2.
