In a not so odd move, Motorola has decided to release the oft-rumored DROID HD or better known as its code name, Dinara, quietly in China. This isn’t the first time Motorola has decided to bring a big phone to a foreign country before the U.S., the DROID 3 was released in China first under the name Milestone 3.

The Dinara, pictured below, is quite the beast, with an impressive 720p display and a monster 13-megapixel camera, we know it will also support LTE and a dual-core processor, full specs are also below. Sadly, the Dinara doesn’t offer anything ground breaking in terms of styling or design. This device honestly looks like it takes a step back and follows design cues from the older DROID X2.

While we should expect a U.S. release, don’t look for it until after the ball drops in New York. An announcement at CES 2012 is likely to be the first we’ll hear about this device, officially.

BEIJING – November 28, 2011 – Stop dreaming and start doing with the all-new dual-core, dual-mode, dual-standby Motorola XT928 from Motorola Mobility, Inc. and China Telecom. With a huge 4.5-inch touch screen with 1280×720 HD resolution, 1080p HD video capture/playback, 13-megapixel camera and Dolby® Digital Plus audio technology in a stunning package, this is mobile multimedia like you’ve never experienced it before. The Motorola XT928 will be available across China from Motorola Mobility and China Telecom this December.

With a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, apps will run much faster than single-core processor phones. Watch movies on the big, bright HD screen, which is protected by scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass. If you want to create your own multimedia, use the 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p high-definition video capture for crisp, clear, cinematic-quality images. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. This is no camera phone; it’s a camera inside of a phone, with features like Wide Dynamic Range, which enhances photos by filtering bright and dark areas to accurately capture scenes with a wide range of light.

“The latest of China Telecom’s 3G Internet smartphones, the Motorola XT928 has great smartphone performance and imaging capabilities that surpass those of many digital cameras,” said Ma Daojie, Director of China Telecom Device Management Center. “China Telecom is well known for its strong portfolio of devices for professional users.

We look forward to working with China Telecom to show people in China everything that Motorola XT928 can do.”
