Global Direct Parts, a reseller of OEM components for mobile devices, is now listing the Motorola Droid 3 screen assembly for sale, complete with pictures of the LCD and casing. You can’t actually buy the item as the site lists it as out of stock and by all accounts the launch of the Droid 3 is still a few months away, but the listing provides us with a clear look at what will make up the top half of the latest in the Droid lineup, complete with ample room for a front facing camera.

The product page goes into details about some of the other differences we can expect, from everything from the location of the screen’s digitizer to the re-arranging of the sensor array and speaker to accommodate the FFC. A larger, 4-inch screen takes the place of the 3.7-inch display found on the Droid and Droid 2. Gone is the bump out beneath the screen, creating a more flush design with relocated capacitive navigation keys.

It is strange that the part is listed for resale so far before the expected late summer release date, but then again it is also strange that the handset is associated with the Targa codename. Up until now we have heard Targa to be associated with a device that may take over as the Droid Bionic. We wouldn’t put too much stock in the use of the codename here.
