The Motorola Xoom 2 is a little elusive at the moment, as there does not seem to be too much information coming from those people who claim that they are in the know. However, this has now changed, as we have two images of the proposed new design, and you can see that there are similarities with both the Photon 4G and even the Droid HD come to that matter.
We cannot say for certain how real these images are, but if they do turn out to be the real deal, then it is sticking with the 10.1-inch display format and not smaller, although we do know that they are considering it. The Xoom 2 is currently known as the MZ617 — oh how we love those code names. Motorola do not seem to be going too bold with its design, but we will just have to see how it progresses.
Having said that, there are a few key differences, such as being lighter and huge physical flush buttons to the rear. Droid Life also points to both HDMI and micro USB, a SIM and SD card slot. This means that it is highly likely that the new Xoom 2 will be able to take advantage of LTE. The biggest difference from what we can see is the corners of the tablet, as they are now more angled than the current version — hence the similarities to the two handsets that we mentioned above.
Not much else is known, but it does look as though there will be a front and rear-facing camera. However, we are uncertain what megapixel they will be. We do not know what CPU will be used, RAM or storage, but now that these pictures have appeared, it could now be the time that the influx of information finally begins?
