Motorola Droid X2 Versus Motorola Droid X (Images)



Last week, we saw the first official images of the upcoming and still unannounced Motorola Droid X2. Well, Pocketnow has kindly put together some a comparison using those photos that show the form factor differences between the original Droid X and the Droid X2.

Droid X and Droid X2

One thing you’ll notice in the photos is that there isn’t much difference between the 2 phones. The Droid X2 is going to be bringing almost an identical design to the table when it devices to hit shelves, which will probably come sometime in May.

There is one major difference though, which we’ve touched on before, and that is the lack of a physical button for the camera on the Droid X2. For those familiar with the Droid X, that red button along the side of the device is not going to be on the Droid X2 for whatever reason.

While you might not be able to see them in the photos, there are certainly many differences between the 2 phones.

The Droid X2 is likely going to be bringing some major upgrades over the original and will apparently sport a NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch qHD resolution display and 786MB of RAM which are all upgrades (and welcomed ones at that) over the original.

So, does a device with the design of the original Motorola Droid X sans physical camera button with some major hardware upgrades interest you?

Or were those of you waiting for the Droid X2 hoping for a major overhaul?

    I never understood why the red button was there anyway. It is useless (and for us lefties) in the way. Glad it’s gone frankly.

    Now with the Bionic put on the summer back burner, if the x2 is 4g, then yes I will love this phone. My X is great. With dual core, more ram, and 4g, i’ll be all over it. Plus red camera button takes forever to start camera. Good riddance.

      Its not going to be 4G or else it would most likely have a front facing camera.

    I never use the red button and it is not programmable to do anything but take the picture so i am glad its gone. and yes the major upgrades will have me replacing my droid x for an x2

      What make you say front facing camera are dumb? Care to explain for a reason? Don’t you know this is a breakthrough technology for deaf people that can communicate with you? Droid X is so outdated  NO front facing camera are dumb.

        1, deaf people could… wait for it, type.  You can’t be serious suggesting they sign?  2, if deaf people buy phones solely based on front facing cameras, those are dumb decisons, again, see point 1.

    hope they FIX THE CAMERA in the new Droid. google if you are one of the lucky ones who’s Droid X doesn’t corrupt their videos and photos randomly. i take multiple photos of everything because i never know which photos will wind up instantly corrupted. Videos are an ongoing tragedy.
