Hot on the heels of Google’s groundbreaking acquisition of Motorola, a new Android smartie from the US phone-maker has been leaked - the Droid HD.
Images of the hitherto unseen handset have been published on Engadget, courtesy of an anonymous tipster. Going by Moto's past naming conventions, we are hoping this will translate to UK/Europe release under the Milestone banner.
While evidently not the Nexus-branded handset we were hoping for, specs unearthed for Moto's effort so far have got us giddy with joy nonetheless.
Chief among these are 4.5-inch display with a possibly qHD or 1280x720 resolution, an eight-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p video recording capabilities and a front-facing VGA for video calls.
What kind of processor it packs, unfortunately, is still under-wraps. But knowing the Droid Bionic rocks a 1GHz dual core number from Texus Instruments, we’re expecting something similar on board.
Other features include microUSB and HDMI ports. There also appears to be side-loading SIM and microSD slots and a battery that is very likely removable.
What interests us more, though, is whether the handset is powered by the current Gingerbread iteration Android, or the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich release.
Either way, we’ll find out soon enough. So stay tuned for more gen on the Droid HD in the near future.
