"So, believing users will need a more powerful phone, Jha said his firm will release a smartphone phone with a 2GHz processor by the end of the year. A spokesperson for Motorola confirmed to InternetNews.com he did indeed make such an announcement.

"Jha did not elaborate further, but Wolfgang Gruener, editor of Conceivably Tech, said he spoke to another Motorola executive who asked to remain anonymous who said the Android-powered phone would come with a gyroscope like the new iPhone 4, and use an Nvidia Tegra for graphics processing, including Flash 10.1 support. The chip would be an evolution of the current 1GHz Snapdragon chip, an ARM derivative.

"Snapdragon is a popular processor and one of the fastest on the market. It powers the Motorola Droid, HTC Incredible, HTC EVO 4 and Google Nexus One. Qualcomm recently announced plans to bump the speed to 1.5 GHz, but 2GHz is beyond even that."
