We were just starting to get excited about the upcoming, but still very much elusive Google Nexus 4G handset, but now we have heard the first details on another brand new handset that’s on the way from Motorola.
If you thought the Droid Bionic, Motorola’s other handset was impressive, you haven’t seen anything yet, as a rumored phone called the Dinara possesses hardware specs that make the Nexus 4G look pretty basic – and we never thought we would say that.
Best of all, this handset is allegedly due out before the end of the year according to a report over at Droid-Life. While the ‘Dinara’ name is only meant to be a codename for the moment, there’s nothing code about the list of rumored specs accompanying the device. For starters, it’s meant to be coming with a whopping 13MP rear camera, easily making it one of the premium smartphone options on the market in terms of camera superiority.
Other specs are said to include an HD screen, 16GB of Internal Memory, a 1.2Ghz dual-core TI processor at a minimum, 1GB of RAM and VGA front-facing camera. In terms of that HD screen, we’re hearing that it is apparently larger than the 4.3-inch display featured on the Droid Bionic meaning that it is going to be something like a 4.5-inch, pretty staggering when you think about it.
We’re not done with features just yet though, as other details reveal that the Dinara is a possible 4G LTE and Google Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 handset as well, and if that happens – you can kiss goodbye to the Droid Bionic being the best handset on Verizon by the end of 2011, if the news is legitimate of course.
It does look pretty promising we have to say, and it will be a major warning sign for the likes of Samsung, Apple, HTC and LG if Motorola are preparing to unleash this superphone on Verizon or another US carrier. Naturally, we want to hear your thoughts on this, as a 4G LTE handset, sporting Ice Cream Sandwich, a 4.5-inch HD screen and a 13MP camera becomes a very strong player in the market from where we are standing.
We warned you earlier on this week that some of you may have to reconsider your Droid Bionic purchase this Summer depending on how the release of the Nexus 4G pans out, but news of the vastly superior Dinara now gives you a new dilemma to consider. Are you excited about this handset?
