Motorola Droid X^2 (X-Squared): First Press Shots

So, there’s not much mystery left to the Motorola Droid X successor, known up until now as the Droid X2 or Droid X 2. Not only has it been seen numerous times in the wild (both photos and videos), but it actually looks almost identical to the device it will end up replacing — so much so that they’re probably fabricating its external enclosure using the same parts (which hopefully translates to reduced retail pricing). So besides hinting that a launch/release are near, the appearance of these press shots tells us one important thing: the name of the phone. Not visible in previous shots of prototype units, the branding has now been revealed as Droid X^2 (meaning X-squared, not X-two — we never learned how to code for superscript characters).

Expected to feature a 1.2GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, the X^2 is said to sport the same 4.3-inch screen as its predecessor, but bump the resolution up to qHD. Besides changes to the CPU and pixel count, there may also be a RAM boost to 768MB, and of course the physical camera button has been eliminated; the rest of the specs will reportedly remain the same, from its eight-megapixel, 720p camera to its HDMI port to its EV-DO cellular broadband. The only real unknown at this point, spec-wise, is whether it will come preloaded with a Froyo or newer Gingerbread build of Android.
