How does an unreleased superphone end up in a flea market? That’s the story being reported over at Gizmodo where one lucky guy was able to purchase the Motorola Olympus and found it to be a working unit.
Revealed in the pictures are several details we have been reporting. The Motorola Olympus features a 4.1 inch display, 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, front-facing camera, HDMI port, runs Android 2.2 with Motoblur, and is headed to AT&T.
None of the images confirm the dual-core processor found inside, but Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha already told us he was working on a Tegra 2 phone and this new leak confirms an earlier leak of the system info we posted last month.
It appears that this flea market Olympus is a little dated because it’s running only Android 2.2 and an earlier version of Motoblur than what we previously reported. Newer test units have been updated to Android 2.2.1 and we are hoping that Motorola will load Android 2.3 on this device by the time it is rumored to launch in late January.
Expect the official announcement on January 5th when Motorola holds their CES press event.
