Motorola Defy smartphone may soon get a processor upgrade and is likely be called Motorola Defy+, according to a website.
Motorola Defy came to the market only one year ago, but it instantly struck a chord in the market by giving the users a rugged and strong handset. It gradually graduated from Eclair to Froyo and now there are hints it will be getting Gingerbread also.
Now as per the website, the Motorola Defy’s 800 MHz OMAP 3610 Texas Instruments processor is likely to be upgraded to 1GHz OMAP 3620 TI processor.
Although the improvement is not really that big, the 25 per cent capacity jump in the processor will help Motorola Defy catch up some other handset models that have come out in the market in the meantime. The other specifications of the device such as 512MB of RAM, a 3.7-inch FWVGA display, and 2GM of internal flash storage are likely to remain the same.
The phone attracts attention due to its bezel free screen, which can easily handle moderate slips here and there, and occasional dip in the water as well.
We tried to find out if the new version of Motorola Defy would be coming to India as well, but at the time of writing the story, the Motorola India’s spokesperson was unavailable for comment. But the chances are, Motorola Defy in India will get the upgrade as well because all the Defy handsets in India come from the same source, and it’s unlikely Motorola will make different handset specifically for India.
