Motorola Droid 3 released in China; US Release Date expecting on July 7

The Motorola Droid 3, or XT883, or Milestone, or whatever else you’d like to call it, has finally been launched in China, which means its only a matter of time before this third-gen Droid hits U.S. shelves. It hasn’t even been a year since Motorola and Verizon released the Motorola Droid 2 Global and we’re already talking about a successor. The Droid 3 should be a pretty worthy successor to the Droid 2 and looks to be a refresh similar to the Motorola Droid X2 which was recently released succeeding the wildly popular Motorola Droid X.

The Motorola Droid 3  going to bring several enhancements that will distinguish it from its older brother Driod2. The Droid 3 should be bringing a 4-inch qHD resolution display, that means 540×960 resolution, which will be a big step up from the display on the Droid 2. Verizon’s Droid 3 will also apparently get a boost in processor speed moving from a single-core 1.2GHz processor to a dual-core OMAP 4430 processor. It will likely also come with 512MB of RAM which is a little bit of a let down, an 8MP camera that’s capable of shooting 1080p quality video.The Droid 3′s keyboard is also going to feature five rows instead of the usual four with a dedicated numbers row. The Droid 3 looks like it’s going to be a 3G device and not a 4G LTE smartphone barring any major last minute changes. A disappointment to be sure and something that will make the Droid Bionic look a lot more appealing.

There is a rumour that the Verizon may launch the Motorola Droid 3 in the US on July 7. Now that the Chinese edition of the smartphone has gone official, this could really happen.
