Rumor: Motorola Dinara coming this winter with HD screen, 13 MP camera

A rumor has surfaced today that might just make us forget about the Motorola Titanium’s lackluster specs. Meet the Motorola Dinara, the company’s next flagship Android device.

According to Droid-Life, the Motorola Dinara will be the successor to the Droid Bionic, and it should be coming out this winter (between December and March). We don’t know which version of Android the Dinara will launch with, but seeing how the phone will be released around or after Google announces Ice Cream Sandwich, there’s a chance this will be one of the first phones to be have Google’s upcoming Android version.

There’s also the screen size. Droid-Life claims it will be bigger than the Droid Bionic’s, while keeping the device size the same. I don’t know if you’ve seen a photo of the Droid Bionic lately, but there’s only one way to make the Droid Bionic’s screen bigger without making the device larger. By getting rid of the hardware buttons. As we’ve been saying, it’s possible Google will soon give OEMs the option to make phones without hardware buttons, replacing them with software buttons like those found on Android tablets.

Other rumored specs for the Motorola Dinara include:

  • Texas Instruments processor
  • HD screen
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 13 MP rear-facing camera (Yowza!)
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • Non-removable battery
  • Lock button on the side

Let’s start with the processor. If the Dinara does launch with a TI processor, it’s safe to assume it’ll be powered by either the OMAP4430 or the even faster OMAP4460. Both these chips support 13 MP cameras. I have to say, I can’t wait to get my hands on one. But you know who won’t be very excited about phones with 13 MP cameras? Companies like Olympus, Fujifilm, Nikon and Canon, who could very well see their point-and-shoot camera sales dry up faster than they can say “GPS navigation system.”

The OMAP4 chip also supports a screen resolution of up to 1920×1200 pixels. However, I don’t think the Dinara will launch with such a high-def screen. A more likely resolution would be 720p, like the one found on those screens Toshiba is working on.

That’s pretty much all we know about this mysterious phone right now, but we can expect to find out more as we get closer to the end of the year. Meanwhile, you can tell us whether this phone will be able to make you a Moto-believer once again.
