Yesterday, Motorola’s CEO Sanjay Jha told us to expect four Android handsets which include front-facing cameras by the end of this year. Today, we learn that at least one of those handsets will be packing a 2Ghz processor (over-compensation is a myth, by the way).

There were no details on which architecture would be used or if this would be a dual-core device, but KnowYourCell tells us we should at least be expecting a device with NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 graphics chipset running alongside it. One interesting note that spilled out of yesterday’s bean-spilling convention was that Motorola would plan to put other goodies into the device that are technologically capable of being put into a cell phone (according to one of Conceivably’s sources, anyway).


HD video recording, playback via HDMI, an HD resolution screen, a gyroscope accelerometer that Apple’s now made so popular, a still camera capable of taking photos more than 5-megapixels, and more would make up the device. Coupled with the aforementioned processing power, I’d be convinced that Motorola’s building a device worthy of sending man to another galaxy (no disrespect intended).

If all of this turns out to be true, Motorola’s bringing the smackdown to the Android universe sometime this year with a plethora of devices, and I’m betting at least a few of them will be almost as good as the one described here.
