Motorola Droid RAZR HD release nears as images leak
Last year Motorola reintroduced the RAZR range of smartphones that had previously been hugely successful for the company, and shortly after provided Android fans with the RAZR MAXX and its supercharged battery. Today though we have news of the Motorola Droid RAZR HD as the release of the device seemingly gets nearer after some images leak.
The guys over at Droid Life have been provided with some images of the upcoming smartphone, and by looking on the handsets back plate it can be seen that the device is definitely on route to Verizon at some point and their 4G LTE network. The handset keeps some of the look of the RAZR from last year, but the back plate is now full Kevlar and loses that extra rim of plastic around it.
If the device is similar to the RAZR HD that has been seen in China it will sport a thirteen megapixel camera, which has been positioned in the middle of the handset with a flash and speaker either side of it. From the images there is a slight hump that is likely to be the 3,300 mAh battery, which is also found on the RAZR MAXX.
The source of the images is claiming that the screen is “amazing”, and should be a 4.5-inch 720p HD unit. There is also on screen navigation keys but the processor powering the device couldn’t be confirmed, which is believed to be a 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 unit.
Motorola has again decided to position the USB and HDMI ports on the bottom side of the handset again, which is similar to the likes of the Droid Bionic and X2. The RAZR had both ports positioned on the top of the device though, which some didn’t like. Just like the Motorola Dinara that was leaked yesterday the handset should come running the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
Currently there are no clues of a release date for the Motorola Droid RAZR HD, but some are suggesting by the end of the summer.
