DROID RAZR Pops Up at Nenamark, Looking Like a 1.2GHz OMAP 4430?

The DROID RAZR aka DROID HD aka Motorola Spyder made its first appearance in a benchmark over at Nenamark this weekend.  From a quick look at some of the details that were included, we can see that a qHD screen (960×540) is confirmed along with what should be an OMAP4430 clocked at 1.2GHz (“Turbo”). It could end up as the 4460 which runs at a minimum of 1.5GHz, but those have reportedly been delayed.  We have Verizon mentioned as the brand, but we expected that after a variety of leaks.

Rumors would peg this as one of Verizon’s big 4G LTE holiday releases – the device manager and Cellebrite sightings from the end of last week would certainly help those arguments.  

I think the question many of us are asking now is, “Vigor, Nexus or RAZR?”

    so basically this has the same cpu as the bionic? ill pass

    Nexus, truck Motorola.

  • Bionic

    Benchmarks mean nothing in real world.  I have a Bionic and my friend has a Galaxy s2 and they seem equally as fast to me in every way.

    Hopefully all those people who whined and complained about locked/encrypted/signed Moto bootloaders and are not even considering this or a Bionic.  I mean people don’t complain on the Internet just to complain, right?

    While I love my DX hardware it’ll be Nexus or Vigor for me as I assume this will be locked too.

    Man u “i feel bad for the bionic owners” kill me (not that i own the bionic, but have actually used one), u guys are just as bad (and annoying) as the “there is no better phone then my phone cause it has an “i” in it and my grandma can use it” i*hone users. Theres always gonna be something better around the corner…
     Bionic and RAZR may not have insane specs, but have u actually used a Bionic, it flys… I put one through the ringer constantly and it works perfectly fine. yes the pentile isnt great (or even particularly good)…. and blur (or as i call it bland) makes the phones UI as attractive as lipstick on a pig. But while you guys hold off for the nexus prime GSIII with jellybean in tow (when its announced a few weeks before the launch of the prime), the rest of us will be enjoying real phones in our hand instead of pipe dreams…

    I thought this was supposed to be motorolas first super amoled screen?

    • Anonymous

      only samsung makes phones with superamoled. motorola uses pentile, which btw is garbage.

      • Whatever

        This phone doesn’t have pentile, and yes it is supposed to have a SAMOLED screen. It’s not as though manufacturers don’t buy parts from each other. How do you think the original Droid Incredible and the iPhones get their screens?

        • hkklife

          I personally don’t think it’ll have SAMOLED. I think it’s just be a (very) good Super LCD or something along the lines of the Evo 3D or the Sensation.

          Well, as slick as this one may look, the rumored lack of a removable battery is a total deal-breaker for me.  Or even if it’s “user-replacable” but not easy to pop out, that kills it for me. Quite often I will get home for a few minutes after a long work day with a low battery. I love being able to just pop in my spare and put the depleted battery back into its charger and head back out without having to sit around waiting for my phone to charge.

          Also, Moto REALLY needs to break past the 4.3″ 960×540 barrier.  4.5″ qHD at bare minimum for an LTE flagship device (if not 720p 4.5″). 

          • Anonymous

            4.3 is perfect or 4.5 but stretch from a 4.3

      • Domass

        Your an idiot because this phone has a QHD Super Amoled screen, do a little research first. Oh and Samsung uses Pentile also, Moto just uses the crappier version of it.

        Better display and a better build quality

  • Anonymous

    My OG Droid has been (and still is) serving me really well. I will miss the Gorilla screen. I’ve dropped this baby on concrete more than AT LEAST 10 times over the past 2 years, and it still works. The edges are chipped and bruised but the phone still works. The build quality by Motorola is hard to replace, but I am ready for a Nexus. I really hope that the Nexus Prime will come with a non-plasticy build and will be as sturdy as the Moto phones.

      I can honestly say the same exact thing about my Droid X2.

No one can deny the fact that they can sure produce some titanium armored monster phones.  :-)

      qHD doesn’t mean pentile…it’s a reference to the resolution, like VGA. It means, one quarter of a full HD(1080p) display.

      Pentile is a type of LCD display with an extra white pixel.

      Look up the facts before writing, Google is very helpful if you haven’t tried it yet.

    What’s with the retro naming convention? Phone manufacturers gone the way of the recording industry ‘sampling’ the old school tech? Maybe they should let the people decide:

      moto is slightly behind with specs now a days

      • Avery Ma

        It appears so. I would say perhaps it was to improve quality testing, but if the Bionic is any example, releases are still frought with bugs.  I suppose we’ll just have to wait for the Motorola So-so.

    If this isn’t coming out until just before Christmas, it’ll probably be the Nexus for me.  I really like the look of this phone, but not enough to wait until the end of November or beginning of December.  My mom really wants my Thunderbolt as she has my wife’s old OG Droid.

      Y would someone want a Thunderbolt?

      • Anonymous

        Because it has a bigger screen than the OG Droid and it’s a good phone.  She’s my mom, she’s not going to be gaming or doing anything that requires a dual-core processor.  A 1GHZ processor and LTE will be a big upgrade for her and she’ll be happy.

          Does she like her phones to have good battery. That may be an issues with TB.

          I’m good with knowing my phone will be outdated, I just like it to be at least 4 to 6 months before it happens.  What would bother in particular is seeing a 720p screen a month later, that’s a big deal to me.  That basically puts it on par with a 7″ tablet which means one less thing I have to be tempted to buy.  :P

            You wouldn’t be able to tell the difference in a blind test, guaranteed. Image sizing is adjustable independent of resolution and set to a default scale for the average person so I know you’re not referring to that. Look up how to set LCD density in android.

            Next time you’re looking at your computer monitor, try looking for the pixels and then consider that its density is an order of magnitude less than your phone’s.

            Pixel density and ridiculous resolutions are the new buzzwords, a feature that serves little more than as a checklist on marketing material for company sales. We are at a point of diminishing returns when it comes to this subject.
