    I recently found out that I have an early upgrade and was thinking about the Razr Maxx or Galaxy Nexus. But then I read a rumor about a phone codenamed: The Motorola Vanquish, a follow up to the DX2 that I currently use. What I am wondering now is what processor is going to be used in this new phone and should I hold out for that instead. I want to play games like Shadowgun on whatever phone I get and I would definitely like to be able to take advantage of the extras that Tegra 3 provides support for. Does anyone know what SOC the DX3 will have? Any other information on the DX3/Vanquish would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Sounds awesome to me. Hope we do get another version of the X. My girls older brother dates a girl that owns four verizons. Ill ask her and she always knows of devices about to come out.

    Looks sweet!

    I was reading about this guy over at howardforums.com that claims to have gotten some hands on time with the device and he gave some preliminary specs...

    -lighter than DX
    -screen is larger than DX
    -carbon fiber back (battery non-removable)
    -"screen is gorgeous"
    -ships with ICS
    -probably not till summer

    He also said that it is the successor to the DX2 and that Vanquish may be the codename not the actual name it ships as.

    I can't wait to find out more... I fielded the question of what SOC it will have but he hasn't responded yet. My hope is that it's Tegra 3 but could be OMAP... I just hope it's quad core! :biggrin: If so we have a real contender on our hands...

    As a droid x2 owner, I don't see why they would want to continue this monstrosity"X" line, by far the worst phone I've had in my smartphone years (all subjective of course) . Personally (if the maxx doesn't have pentile), I wouldn't be able to resist that battery lol. a thin 4g phone with a huge battery is win win for me. Of course samsung is pretty beast too...great now I dont know what I would like lol.

    Agreed. Seems like the DX is still getting more attention than the X2. Will stick with MOTO but prob not the X line.

    The DX was a great phone! I personally thing the DX2 is what it is... it just wasn't enough of an upgrade. If memory serves me correct it was released right before LTE was really picking up which kinda made it worse.

    Just found a funny video of the XT928 on youtube... Could this be the Droid X3?

    I loved my x so when the razr came out, it was an obvious choice for me. I don't get these rumors of an x3 because honestly, the razr could have just been called an x3. So the next phone will likely just be a razr2/x4 regardless of what they call it.

    This is a quote from intomobile... "Let me repeat that – Motorola XT928 is the best Android smartphone the American handset maker has ever made. Forget about the RAZR, this is like Galaxy Nexus on steroids..." -Dusan Belic, IntoMobile.

    I think you have bumped your head, my x2 is the best Droid phone I've thus far, now I'm not an owner of a Maxx or gnex yet, but either way, if you don't like the phone you have then you should have gotten a differant phone.

    No he didn't bump his head. The x2 is a big disappointment.

    That article doesn't really say much. I think he was too caught up on the camera. That's the least of my concerns when looking at new phones.

    I thought the vanquish was NOT the DX3.

    True... I found a bunch of articles about the XT928 but I didn't want to spam you all with them... If you google it you will find many articles on that phone. One thing I like about it is the dual SIM cards. But there's no telling whether the XT928 is even going to be the DX3. We don't even know if it's coming to the US or if it does what carrier it will be on (rumor is it will be AT&T). It is a pretty sweet phone though with 720p screen and dual SIMs not to mention 13 MP camara and maybe ICS if and when it comes to the US.

    My hope for the DX3 is that it will be a Tegra 3, 720p, ICS, LTE, superphone with great battery life and on Verizon. Then I will be strongly considering picking one up. Until then all I can say is that my DX2 does fine by me so far and then some!

    My understanding is that it might be or might not... I have no idea but the guy who claims to have handled it over at howardforums.com says: "...was told it is the DX replacement". dancedroid
