Photos Of Motorola Olympus Handset Emerge

The first snaps of what seems to be Motorola's next flagship smartphone have appeared online showing a rather bulky handset not unlike the Samsung Galaxy S.

The pictures, available at Engadget, shows a device that that no longer fits into Motorola rather rectangular form factor, instead the handset is rather curvy; there's also a speaker bar, the usual four-button navigation and a front facing camera.

Two Olympus smartphones are expected to be launched with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and possibly powered by Nvidia's Tegra 2 Dual Core Cortex-A9 based SoC.

Based on the two photos published, one can guess that the screen size of the device would be at least 3.7-inch, like the Motorola Milestone 2.

The Olympus is likely to come with Gingerbread (Android OS 2.3) and pack Motoblur's user interface. More importantly though, the handset will possibly be positioned as the follow-up to the keyboard less Droid X, rather than the Droid 2.
