In July, The Mobile Indian had reported about the Motorola Xoom’s successor, which was to come with 4:3 aspect ratio and the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update. Now Droid-Life managed to get exclusive images of the Xoom’s successor tablet, which is likely to be branded Xoom 2.
Featuring a 10.1 inch screen the Xoom 2 comes with angled corners, similar to Motorola’s Photon 4G smartphone. We can expect the tablet to be revealed by the end of this year or early next year at the Consumer Electronics Show 2012 in LA, USA.
Motorola Xoom 2 will have a 10.1 inch display and will sport 4:3 aspect ratio with 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution. The tablet is presumed to leave out a 4G LTE chip and will come in WiFi as well as WiFi+3G versions. Motorola Xoom 2 has model number MZ617.
The front facing camera exists to use the tablet in landscape mode while the camera at the back comes with HD written next to it. The tablet will most probably be capable of recording 720p HD videos. There was no information on the processor but considering the exclusive tie-up between Motorola and Nvidia to use the Tegra 2 processor in Xoom, the successor will likely come with the much rumoured Kal-El processor, also called Tegra 3.
Details on the version of operating system on this tablet are scarce. It seems safe to assume that Android Honeycomb might come pre-loaded on the device with the capability to update to Ice Cream Sandwich whenever it starts rolling out. Else, this might turn out to be one of the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablets.
Motorola will offer Xoom 2 in two colours — white and black.
