Motorola Droid X and Droid 2 Won’t Feature Snapdragon CPUs

June 22, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The confusion over the inclusion of 1 GHz Snapdragon processors in the Motorola Droid X and Droid 2 handsets seems to be finally over as it has been confirmed that the phones will not feature Snapdragon processors. An OMAP 3630 or 3640 processor clocking 1 GHz manufactured by Texas Instruments will instead be a part of the devices.

The confusion initially began when DroidLanding mentioned on their Twitter account that the Droid X was armed with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Though the particular tweet was immediately removed from the Twitter page, the news had already spread online by then.

It was also mentioned in some reports that the Snapdragon processor claims for the Droid X and Droid 2 were indeed true and were supported by claims from their sources as well. However, the sources corrected their claims quickly as 1 GHz OMAP processors were confirmed to be present in the phones.

Motorola and Texas Instruments’ processors have been linked together closely for some time. However, 1 GHz Snapdragon chips have been the processors of choice in many smartphones. Both Motorola and Verizon are yet to officially announce the processor specifications for the Droid 2 and Droid X handsets and users might have to wait for the probable launch of either one or both handsets on June 23 for official information.
