Motorola Droid 3 Hardware Specs Revealed

Earlier today we heard about the first real possibility for a launch date for Motorola’s Droid 3, rumored to be showing up with Verizon on July 7. As we wait to see if that date checks out, an early look at the smartphone out of China gives us a new look at its hardware, with some fresh information on its specs.

Bad news first: the Droid 3’s display, though with a nice qHD resolution, will be another PenTile setup, like other recent Motorola Droids. While that screen has good readability in direct sunlight, you pay for it with problems drawing crisp, straight lines and troubles with color inaccuracy. These might be more apt to annoy you if you’re looking for them; luckily, the pixel density is high enough that the jagged line edges, at least, may be hard to notice.

Also in the disappointing-spec department, the Droid 3 will only have 512MB of RAM. Again, nothing surprising there considering Motorola’s history, but it’s getting harder to pass off a new high-end phone without a gigabyte of memory on-board. Beyond that and the four-inch qHD display, the Droid 3 will have an eight-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facer, 1500mAh battery, and support for HDMI-out. Finally, though Motorola may be killing-off the Blur name, you can check out the newest release of the UI here.
