Say “Hello” to the DROID RAZR HD by Motorola. As you can see from the back plate, it’s definitely headed to Verizon and their ever-expanding 4G LTE network. While it maintains a bit of the RAZR look of last year, the back plate is now full kevlar without the extra rim of plastic around it. The camera (likely 13MP) has been centered in the middle with flash and speaker on each side. From the picture below, you can see that there isn’t much of a hump left and that is thought to be because of the 3300mAh battery that Moto has included inside. Our source claims that the screen is “amazing” and that the phone also has the expected on-screen navigation keys. They were not able to confirm the processor, which is thought to be Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, but we would be surprised if it was something else.
What’s interesting is the move from Motorola to put the micro HDMI and USB ports on the bottom side of the device again, similarly to what we saw from multiple devices like the Bionic and DROID X/X2. In the RAZR, they switched it up a bit and put both ports on the top of the device, something I admittedly was not a fan of. So, thank you to Moto for righting that wrong.
We still do not have a release date, but we are hearing we could be up to 2 months out. Other sources of ours have said that this phone would arrive late summer, so this would at least match up to that time frame.
