Motorola has unveiled the Milestone XT720, an Android phone with an 8-megapixel camera and an HDMI-out connection.

The smartphone, announced on Monday, will be available for pre-order on retail websites on 11 June. The XT720 has a 3.7-inch, 480x854-pixel capacitive touchscreen and runs Android 2.1 on a 550MHz processor.

A spokeswoman Motorola was unable to tell ZDNet UK whether the handset will get an upgrade to Android 2.2, or 'Froyo'. Pricing and the specific release date also have not yet been announced.

The XT720 has an 8-megapixel camera with a xenon flash. Camera functions include panorama, face detection, multi-shot, red-eye reduction and camera shake prevention.

According to Motorola, the handset can shoot "720p HD" video. However, the phone actually shoots video at 720x480 pixels. Since 720p video is shot at 1,280x720 pixels, Motorola appears to be deriving its resolution claims from the wrong axis.

Unusually for a mobile phone, the XT720 has an HDMI-out connector.

Motorola's Milestone XT720 weighs 160g and measures 61 by 116 by 11mm.

The device has a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, a compass and accelerometer. It also has Motorola's Motonav turn-by-turn navigation system preinstalled. The phone comes with an 8GB microSD card, although it can take a capacity of up to 32GB.
