The Motorola Milestone 3 is still unofficial but its first full review just went online. The review confirms some specs, has an fascinating discovery about the classy screen and brings benchmarks, capturing camera samples and hands-on impressions.

We've seen the Motorola Milestone 3 and the Droid 3 (those should be almost identical save for the GSM/CDirect Memory Access (DMA) radio differences) several times before.

We've known for a while that the Motorola Milestone 3 / Droid 3 has a 4" qHD Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen. The Chinese site that got their hands on the Milestone 3 however claims that it has a PenTile matrix and offer the following photos as proof. If that's the case, then the classy screen should the same as the one used in the Atrix, which we didn’t like all that much.

The Motorola Milestone 3 is running Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread with MOTOBLUR, uh sorry, we forgot Motorola didn’t like that name anymore. The Central Processing Units (CPU) is a dual-core Cortex-A9 running at 1Giga Hertz (GHz) with PowerVR SGX540 graphics, packaged in a TI OMAP 4430 chipset with 512Mega Bytes (MB) RAM.

Benchmarks put it behind the HTC Sensation, though that's for a very early pre-release unit, so the results aren’t totally dependable.

The Milestone 3 packs a microHDMI port and an 8MP capturing camera that can record FullHD video. The reviewers snapped a few photos, but unfortunately, they used the 16:9 option, which doesn’t utilize the full 8MP resolution of the camera. Anyway, here are the photos:

Alas there's no video capturing camera sample.
