The third and latest iteration of Motorola’s Droid lineup of smartphones has been exposed in a series of leaked tutorial videos.
Obtained by PhonePads, videos apparently intended to teach new owners on how to use the Droid 3, which we assume would be called Milestone 3 if it makes it way to Blighty, show a handset that looks almost identical to its previous models but with some key improvements in the specs department.
Chief of these is the addition of a new eight-megapixel camera with LED flash, which now records in full HD, aka 1080p, compared with the relatively puny 720p managed by its predecessor.
An HDMI port is also onboard, allowing videos recorded to be streamed directly to a compatible device.
The slide out QWERTY keyboard has been updated with an extra numbers row, making it five rows long this time around. Although it’s hard to tell from the clips, we think the buttons may have also been raised slightly to make them a bit easier to type on, as this was one of the major criticisms of the Droid/Milestone 2.
Some minor cosmetic changes have also been made. For example, the volume rocker is now on the right edge. The operating system appears to be Gingerbread, although the clips state that “Software Shown Not Final” so there might still be work to be done.
That’s about all we got for now. No mention whatsoever of the processor it’ll pack, which has been rumoured to be of the dual-core variety.
Stay tuned as we find out more about the Droid 3 in the days to come.
