While Verizon and Motorola are expected to officially announce the gigantic Droid X on June 23rd, Engadget managed to get some early hands-on time with the phone. The 4.4-inch Droid X is expected to directly compete with Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G (see our review here), a phone that’s already quite large in comparison to other phones. The Droid X, however, manages to one-up the EVO 4G in size, being “slightly longer and wider.”
The 4.4-inch screen reportedly has an 854×480 resolution and the handset runs Android 2.1 underneath a custom skin similar but less obtrusive than the Motoblur skin found on some other Motorola phones.
There’s also an 8-megapixel camera that records 720p video, a multitouch on-screen keyboard that allows you to hit multiple keys at a time for super quick typing, 8GB of built-in storage, and a 1GHz processor under the hood.
No word on pricing or availability yet, but we’ll find that out on the 23rd.
