Moto Mirage and Shadow would eclipse Droid
Motorola may be developing an even higher end Android phone if a Chinese leak today translates to reality. Nicknamed either the Mirage or the Shadow, it would graduate from the Droid's 3.7-inch screen to a larger still 4.3 inches, albeit at the same 854x480 resolution. Performance, however, would be the greatest jump as the phone is rumored to support 1080p video and would have native HDMI output.
The smartphone may be as thin as 0.35 inches and would have an 8-megapixel camera. Stylistically, it would resemble a larger but thinner version of the Droid, as seen in a rough 3D rendering.
If real, the phone would arrive as soon as the first half of 2010 and would likely be Motorola's flagship, although whether it would still support Verizon or else go to GSM carriers isn't evident. [via BGR]
