You’d be hard-pressed to find many phones that look relatively stylish, are thin and light enough to carry comfortably in your pocket, and can hang out underwater for ten minutes. That’s why, we suppose, the Motorola Defy became popular worldwide; it’s difficult to build a device to be a tank without looking like one, and it’s even more tough to do it right. Naturally, when you’ve got a good thing going, it’s ideal to improve upon that model. The Motorola Defy+ aims to do just that — keep the form factor, Gorilla Glass and IP67 certification, but beef up the internal components and throw in better firmware. The new iteration — slated for a Q3 release — will house a single-core 1GHz TI OMAP 3620, Android 2.3.4 with Moto’s latest UI skin (still curiously referred to as MotoBlur) on top, and a 1700mAh battery while the rest of the specs remain the same as its predecessor. No word on specific carrier availability was given, though HelloMoto aims to launch it in Asia, Latin America, and Europe in the fall. Full press release can be found after the break.
