Verizon’s upcoming Droid X and Droid 2 should be the fastest Android phones available thanks to their 1 GHz OMAP processors. We previously reported both phones would feature the new 45nm Texas Instruments OMAP3630, but we erroneously reported it was clocked at 720 MHz. Now a couple of leaked slides posted over at Droid Life confirm what others have been telling us – the CPU is clocked at 1 GHz.
The defending speed champion for Android phones has been Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform. However, recent system benchmark results show that the Droid X (MB810) topped all other phones running Android 2.1. We also know from our GPU benchmarks that the OMAP’s PowerVR SGX530 GPU is faster than the Snapdragon’s Adreno graphics.
Current rumors suggest that Verizon will launch the Droid X first in July and then follow that up with the Droid 2 in August. Both phones should feature Android 2.1 with Motoblur, with the outside chance that Motorola might update the Droid 2 to Android 2.2 by launch.
