Motorola’s highly anticipated Droid 3 smartphone has been leaked in a series of video tutorials on YouTube.
The official looking videos were posted online by German technology blog Phone Pads (opens in new tab). The videos reveal some of the features that will come with the new phone including an 8 MP camera, HDMI support and a slide-out Qwerty keyboard. The camera is also capable of full HD 1080p recording.
The videos flaunt the HDMI connectivity feature and also tutor potential customers on how to use the device’s contact feature and use either the on-screen virtual keyboard or the slide-out physical Qwerty keyboard to send text messages.
However, the highly official looking videos fail to specify whether the device will ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread or not. Also the videos fail to reveal whether the Motorola Droid 3 will come with a dual core TI OMAP or Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core chipset.
Motorola hasn't released much information about the specifications and the launch date for the new smartphone, but rumors point to an end of June launch, just a couple of weeks from now.
Motorola has been struggling recently in the smartphone and tablet markets, prompting their CEO to say he wants to rebrand Motorola's product line as "aspirational goods". Now we will see if the new phones live up to those expectations.
