The rumor mill is at it again. Today’s rumored device is what Motorola will launch after the mythical Droid Bionic. The next Android-powered flagship device to come out of Moto has the codename Dinara for now. That may or may not end up being the name of the handset in one market or another.
The Motorola Dinara will have a TI processor, 1 GB of RAM, an HD touchscreen (presumably with 1280×720 resolution), a 13 MP main camera, a VGA front-facing camera, and a non-removable battery (a la Apple). It will apparently look almost identical to the Droid Bionic, yet will manage to pack in a bigger screen despite having the same length and width as the Bionic. That will be accomplished by having the screen come a lot closer to the edges.
The Dinara will also be a much thinner and lighter package than the Bionic. The lock button will be on the side, a placement so far favored only by Samsung in the Android world.
As for carriers that will sell it, there is a chance that the Dinara will end up on multiple carriers, but right now it’s being tested on Verizon. There’s no information yet on whether Big Red’s version will come with 4G LTE support, but it probably should.
The Dinara should be out by this winter, and at the moment it runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread (since no manufacturer has seen Ice Cream Sandwich yet). It’s unclear though what version of Android it will ship with. Hopefully if Ice Cream Sandwich is ready in time it will be that.
Now before you get too excited about all this, keep in mind that all of the above is nothing more than a rumor at this point. So things may be a bit different that what you’ve just read, they may be very different, or none of it may come to fruition. Only time will tell, of course, and we’ll be here to let you know.
