Motorola Droid 3 Benchmarked; To Sport a Five Row QWERTY Keyboard

The original Motorola Droid and the Verizon’s Droid campaign way back in 2009 was one of the major reasons of Android’s monumental growth.

Original Droid was and still remains one of the most popular and successful Android phone. People had huge expectations from the Motorola Droid 2. Sadly, the Droid 2 was just another Android with a 1GHz CPU and a slide-out keyboard.

Original Droid owners and lovers expect that the Droid 3 from Motorola will be a radical overhaul from the Droid 2.

Now, a leaked benchmark of the upcoming Droid 3 has popped up on the Internet. The benchmark suggests that the Droid 3 will pack in a qHD (960×640) screen, and will be powered by a dual-core 1GHZ OMAP processor. The GPU inside the Droid 3 will be the PowerVR SGX540, same as the one found in the Galaxy S, albeit with a higher clock speed.

A few days ago, a picture of the Droid 3 also leaked on the Internet. The picture suggests that the Droid 3 will have a bigger screen that the Droid 2, and a five-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Personally, I am a bit disappointed with the Droid 3 specs. The original Droid had a killer hardware which was pretty much unheard of that time. Sadly, the Droid 3 will again have specs which other high-end Droids will sport. I still hope that the Droid 3 has a special feature, which makes it stand out from other high-end Android handsets.

    Hope the new Motorolla Droid gets rid of the crapware that has killed off my Droid X. I loved my orig Droid but abandoned it for the larger screen, faster OS and no keyboard. I would happily return to it all just for no crapware. Verizon, please, no garbage. In order just to save battery life, I’ve had to delete twitter and facebook.

    Maybe I don’t need a smartphone at all. I dropped my iPhone 3 for a Droid. The orig Droid was way better than my iPhone.
