Motorola Targa, Droid X 2 and Droid 3 seen

Three of Motorola's headlining phones for the next several months have been spotted and should now include a previously unseen ultra-high end phone for Verizon. The Targa would be a full-touch Android phone with LTE-based 4G and would focus primarily on cameras. Along with a front camera, the prototype render given by well-known HowardForums leaker WNRussell shows a bulge holding a possible 13-megapixel camera, although it's unclear whether this was a real specification or just speculation from engineers.

Little else is known about the Targa besides HDMI, and doubts have surfaced given the "01-18-2010" date on the front and the lack of Verizon's precise "4G LTE" branding. However, it's still believed to represent a real device and is speculated to ship either late this year or early next.

More concrete information has surfaced from the same source for the Droid 3. Again, little is known, but the live prototype shows the partial return of the original Droid's "chin" along with chrome trim. Unconfirmed though logical rumors have had it getting the same 540x960 resolution as the Atrix and Droid Bionic, but whether it also gets a Tegra 2 processor or 4G are still unknowns. Motorola has so far launched the original Droid and its sequel in the second half of a given year and will likely follow a similar schedule.

A third and final spotting has shown the Droid X 2 again. The design is virtually identical to the original Droid X on the outside but uses a new version of the Blur interface. It may be a 3G-only device but should have a 540x960 screen, a 1GHz Tegra 2 chip and 1GB of RAM. Verizon launched the Droid X last summer and may be keen for a repeat. [via Phone Arena]
