Motorola has unveiled the Defy+ for all your rough-and-tumble smartphone needs, bringing faster web browsing and Android 2.3 to its Gorilla-glass toting Defy handset.
It may have been ever so slightly overshadowed by Motorola's other news yesterday, but the Motorola Defy+ is nothing to sniff at – the original Defy, the Bear Grylls of smartphone handsets, was something of a surprise hit.
On to the specs: As well as Android 2.3, the Defy+ comes with a 3.7-inch high resolution (864x480) touchscreen, 5MP camera and 1GHz processor that is "25 per cent faster" than the original Defy.
The faster web browser is Flash-capable and oft-used apps have also been improved with tweaks made to the calendar and homescreens.
What is really impressive though is the boost in battery power - up to 1700mAh, making it the second largest on the market after the 1950mAh behemoth power pack shoved in the back of the Motorola Atrix.
Of course, it wouldn't be a Defy if the Defy+ wasn't "life proof"; it is water resistant, scratch resistant and dust-proof to boot - complete with IP67 compliance.
The Motorola Defy+ UK release date is set for sometime this autumn, but we'd expect to see it on the shelves with a price tag of around £25 per month or £250 SIM-free.
UPDATE: We've just bee told the Motorola Defy+ UK release date has been pegged for September - so go nuts and smash up your current phone if you want to see what 'Life Proof' really means.
