Motorola Announces Two New 720p HD Devices for China, How Long Before We See Them in the U.S.?

Over the holiday weekend, Motorola made two new devices official in China:  the Motorola HD XT928 and the Motorola MT917. Both will look familiar as each was photographed just a couple of weeks ago. Now, normally we ignore most of the phone releases outside of the U.S., but these caught our eye for the simple fact that they have 720p HD displays, which is a first for any Motorola device. Each phone will sport a 4.5″ 720p LCD display (330ppi) and 13MP rear camera, along with the rest of the specs you can find in the DROID RAZR or DROID 4 (1.2GHz dual-core OMAP4430, 1.3MP front camera, etc.). Not bad, right?

We are just wondering why these phones have been announced so close to the RAZR and D4 with almost identical specs, yet have upgraded screens? It’s pretty obvious that Moto has the technology ready for mass consumption, leading us to believe that these phones (or at least one of them) will be here some time early next year. At the rate Motorola has been tossing out phones over the last 6-7 months, nothing would surprise us. Motorola HD with 4G LTE on display at CES? Makes sense.

So the MT917 is up top as the RAZR twin but with a higher MP camera and HD display. The phone below is the XT928 aka the Motorola HD. We’re just guessing here, but the XT928 could easily be the DROID X3. We should also point out that Moto appears to have partnered with Dolby digital to potentially take on HTC and their Beats integration. Oh, and someone better find a way to slap an LTE radio in these or that HD screen is going to be collecting dust here in the states.  

 

Interested in either phone? HD displays are the new buzzworthy spec to talk about for the next few months along with quad-core processors. Maybe this will turn into the DROID HD when all is said and done. Or is this simply the Motorola Dinara that we first reported on a few months back as AT&T’s new player?

    What is the 3 in some kind of swirl logo, above the screen?  Is that just the carrier over there?  Or some bizarre feature being eluded to?

    Doesn’t matter how many mp moto puts in the camera if it is the same shitty camera and software as the other devices.

    holy shit…… cant make up my mind!! quadcore? 720p display? 13mp? its like i want everything.

      quad core is pointless on phones right now imo. what we need is higher clocks/better efficiency and maybe a little more ram and better gpu.

    All I have to say is I’m pissed! They could have easily thrown in a better display in the Droid Razr I just bought and maybe a slightly better lens in the camera. How hard is that? I would have been fine. I’m a fan of Motor’s build quality but I’m starting to lean towards Samsung phones. At least they have a flagship phone and not putting out 15 devices in a year. Put better radios and GPS in them and I could care less about the plastic materials. It’ll be wrapped in an otter box case anyway ;).

    These devices are great, but i feel that moto is following HTC footsteps by releasing to many devices in a short period of time.

    I don’t see what the big deal is about these. I wouldn’t take one of these over my RAZR for the same price. sAMOLED>LCD, and I doubt this is even an SLCD. Also, MP hurt you over a certain point. A small sensor like what’s in these phones probably produces really noisy photos at 13MP.

    Wait, sorry; M0AR SPECS IS TEH BETTARZ!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Forte/542650247 Michael Forte

    So somehow it’s okay for Samsung to use 800×480 displays up until recently but if Motorola decides to upgrade their screens to HD they are the bad guy? Makes no sense to me. The Galaxy SII has 800×480 resolution but no one complains, while Motorola has been using qHD for the past year.

    • Dominick DeVito

      If you can say with a straight face that Motorola’s qHD screens are the same quality as Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus screens then you must be the biggest Moto fanboy on the planet or literally blind.

    remember though that these screens could still suck. qHD is normally pretty awesome, but moto still managed to screw it up with their RGBW pentile display. i’m sure a 720p would look pretty good even with the RGBW, but it would still be inferior to all other displays of this resolution. and with the way motorola has been about displays, i’d bet they sacrificed quality just so they could say “we’ve got 720p too.” just like they did with qHD. just my thoughts..

    Why is Moto putting the 4 buttons on the bottom of their new phones?  Won’t that make running Ice Cream Sandwich awkward?

    • Evan Knofsky

      Just because Google now offers software buttons doesn’t mean companies will adopt them right away or ever :/

    • Anonymous

      No it will not make it akward. Runs fine on Nexus S. How is Gingerbread going to work without soft keys? By the times these phones or any current Moto phone gets ICS they will have a ICS device already out. It will be at the very least 6 months before ICS makes it to a current Moto phone.

    • Dominick DeVito

      Because they designed these phones months and months prior to ICS being released.

      But that doesn’t give them a free pass for being dumb about it.

    I don’t see these being released here anytime soon.  Firstly, they would have to shove an LTEs radios in them, which would impact the devices structurally.  Secondly, I think that ICS is likely to get some penetration by the time any carrier could bring these to the U.S. and I’m not so sure that the buttons would be relevant at that point. I certainly cannot see Verizon getting these to market before ICS begins to spread, given the pace at which they have delivered the Galaxy Nexus.

    Seems as though Motorola has adopted the exact opposite strategy as Apple & Samsung. They have no flagship device and continue to push out new phones every couple of weeks. I hope once Google takes over, they slow down and focus on creating better products at a slower pace. 

    They should stick with 3 phone hardware models and release the older models as the “budget” versions maybe with slight bumps to hardware specs if cost effective.

        No one’s getting burned. Your contract is up, you get a new phone and move on. Only people who feel they need to have the latest and greatest every day ‘feel’ like they have been burned, but really, they haven’t. People who hang on to their upgrades forever, complaining in the process how bad their current phone is, to wait for a new phone only have themselves to blame. Even by Feb, the Nexus will probably look like a POS to what’s being offered. 

        You want 1 phone every year, buy an iPhone, otherwise Android diversification is here to stay. 
        No one complains when the laptop you bought yesterday is replaced by a better one in a month.

        • Dominick DeVito

          Come on man – you can’t be that naive.

          Yes, sure, you buy a phone and move on – but you know what – it’s not that simple. You’re buying a phone on contract, you don’t just buy it and “move on”. You’re stuck with it, and with that comes responsibility on the part of the manufacturer and carrier to keep your device updated for the contract term.

          You’re blindsiding customers. You tell them how great a device is and 3 weeks later announce a new one? That’s f’d up.

          • Anonymous

            It’s not naive. It’s that simple, and that’s exactly what 90% of people do. You do not have the mindset of a typical buyer. You’re a Nexus-er, advanced type that wants to stay on top all the time..

            No one is being blindsided. The only thing that would be naive is to believe technology is standing still and companies will hold back products to make you feel better. Just because something newer comes out doesn’t make your older device a worthless pile of crap. We already know all Android devices basically cease support after 1 year. That’s a fact of life these days. I can’t think of a single Android phone that’s been supported the life of the contract anyway. You’re not stuck. You can always buy a newer phone, new, used or otherwise and use it. Staying on the bleeding edge isn’t free or cheap, in mobile, cars, TVs or anything else.

            Dude, stop drinking the Kool-Aid.

            I understand you may work for one of these companies, but releasing a phone every 6 weeks is foolish – considering the current device lacks a key feature, that amazingly pops up in the next one, and so on and so forth.

            I’m all about consumers educating themselves, and yes, I understand the average joe consumer may or may not care – but that doesn’t make it right.

            I certainly don’t work for any of them, and I don’t see myself drinking Kool Aid either.

            I guess here’s a better example. My S40 while the newest generation, was the last of the entertainment centers to not have an Aux input, which I really wanted, and told was not available in any way, despite paying the extra 1400 for the high end premium fiber system. Whattaya know…~3 months later they changed the system to have one and threw in Sat radio too. Did I feel burned somehow? No. Does my system suck now? No. Am I kinda bummed, Ironic? Yes. 

            I just see it as fate / fact of life. You buy something when you need it (like I needed the car then), on your schedule and be happy with it. 

          • Mctypething

            Well, that is not how the phones are being marketed. Moto is pushing these phones as the best smartphone ever, and then releasing a better model a month later. How can you justify that? They should never have released the Bionic. I own it and really like it, but to see a better product released a month later is a complete slap in the face. If Moto didn’t see anything suspect in this business model, they would be more forthright with their business plan instead of assuming their customers are dopes.

          • Anonymous

            Truth be told, marketing any product in a capitalist society is to first and foremost say it’s the greatest thing ever. That’s not exclusive to phones or surprising. 

            Totally agree the Bionic should have never been bothered with. But these phones above are for China, not here. So to say Moto’s over-saturating the US right now isn’t exactly on target, but it’s probably good to assume something similar will be here soon.  

          • Dominick DeVito

            I agree with what you’re saying – about tech in general.

            Technology is supposed to work this way. It grows at an alarmingly fast rate, would you rather development slow down so folks can have that “best phone on the market in my pocket” feeling longer? This field grows by making baby steps in this decade at least, r&d can constantly improve products, why not let them put out better devices every few months?

            Look at the different lineup the droid has.

            Droid 1 – Fall 2009
            Droid 2 – Fall 2010
            Droid 3 – Summer 2011

            Droid X – Summer 2010
            Droid X2 - Spring 2011

            Droid Pro – Fall 2010

            Droid Bionic – September 2011

            Droid RAZR – November 2011

            Motorola is not resting on their loins. They’re putting all their lines of phones into production with almost a year of work behind each new release. I would be bold enough to say the OG droid line, droid x, droid pro, bionic, and razr all have different sell points. The bionic was a new approach to the droid X, and the razr was a new approach to make the droid x incredibly thin. They didn’t start work on the razr after the bionic, they’re giving people a choice between the devices. Not everybody is on-board the razr thin train. Some people want that removable battery. Now you have a choice. Those two phones are near identical. A serious shopper would know about both the bionic and razr before making their purchase. Buying phones on a release date is a big gamble.

          • Dominick DeVito

            Yet the only phone worth keeping on this list is the Razr (for 2012).

          • Sir Lawrence

            This isn’t soley motorola’s doing. HTC, Blackberry, samsung, LG, and Apple are all pushing out new devices. It’s a real mess out there to try and compete for people to believe one manufacturer is better than another. I totally agree the phone market is oversaturated. It’s dissapointing to watch this generation of technology to become mass produced, but look at the history of technology- televisions, stereos, or any electronic device for that matter. A few brands kicked off the market and once the success took- everybody jumped on board! Cell phones are a very safe market to invest in. They aren’t going anywhere soon.

            I wouldn’t mind them putting out a phone every other week….if I didn’t have to lock in to a 2 year contract.  I got my og droid in December of 2009, and look at the phones I have had to pass up since then….and the tech upgrades they came with. It is a marketing strategy almost built to piss people off …and it sure doesnt build any brand loyalty.

            If you really wanted to you could buy the phone outright and use it. So the question is really your perceived value vs. opportunity cost. Technology evolves much faster than a 2 year contract, and everyone’s contract ends on a different day.

          • Mctypething

            That is a foolish way to look at it. 2 year contracts should not be offered if the carrier/manufacturer aren’t going to support the phone for 2 years. It doesn’t matter how fast technology evolves if the older products are supported. Would you take a 5 year lease on the car if the manufacturer stopped making parts for it 3 years into your lease?

            Define supported. Motorola Droid just got updated again with some security fixes after its 2 year anniversary, it may not be the latest version (2.3) but it isn’t compatible with the latest due to its limited RAM. ROM developers still support the Droid. So yes i will name a phone that has been up to date with the latest version its specs can run. I’m sure there are other phones that are still receiving updates after their 2 year anniversary but its the unpopular phones that manufacturers don’t support anymore that give you that bad perception. Hence why you need to be smart when buying a new phone to avoid buyers remorse.

            That was pretty much my point..only I dont see that comment anymore. The price structure is currently set up to keep people locked in to outdated technology, which really isn’t a way to move a lot of phones.  They have been setting up the elasticity of demand point. …and they are pushing it too hard. Just look at all the moto users jumping ship on this forum alone. They can put out as many phones as they like, but keeping people locked in for two years, with the tech moving this fast…..not a good strategy.

          • Sir Lawrence

            The contract is such an easy way to make you want the new phone at all costs. A large base of customers can’t stand it when they have to wait for something better when it’s dangling in front of them. That’s a good marketing strategy. Customers will always find something to be upset with. Take away the contracts and it’ll be the cost- the phone itself normally costs what, a good $600-700? They’re giving amazing discounts if you promise to love them for the next two years. I’m cool w/ that part. If they let you trade up through some program they make up, they’re going to have more phones than they know what to do with. They wouldn’t be able to keep up with demand if everybody could instantly upgrade to the new thing.

            For once, we agree. It’s not just the need to have the latest and greatest that is frustrating. There is zero chance that with Moto releasing a new phone every month that they will be committed to supporting all phones for the life of a 2 year contract. As a Bionic owner, I’ve really only noticed the data connectivity bug and the disappearing apps bugs, both of which are unacceptable, but it’s a great phone at the end of the day. However, I know in about 6 months (if not sooner), Moto won’t even remember it exists, while I have 12 months left on my contract.

            And, this is a matter of opinion, but it’s unethical to market every phone as the best phone in history when you release a new phone 10 minutes later that is then the best in history. It doesn’t lessen the previous phone, but just makes it look like you’re hoodwinking your customers. I’m not sure how someone can’t take any issue with Moto’s current business model.

          • Dominick DeVito

            That’s exactly my point. And would it have killed them to hold off on the Razr to release it with an HD screen? Think about it, the Razr with an HD screen would be truly bad-ass with a capital B!

            Now it looks like there’s going to be a “Motorola HD” in JanuaryFebruary – and now they’ll look like a-holes because Razr owners might feel burned.

            I applaud mass production, but they need to step it up in the customer loyalty dept.

            For once, we agree. It’s not just the need to have the latest and greatest that is frustrating. There is zero chance that with Moto releasing a new phone every month that they will be committed to supporting all phones for the life of a 2 year contract. As a Bionic owner, I’ve really only noticed the data connectivity bug and the disappearing apps bugs, both of which are unacceptable, but it’s a great phone at the end of the day. However, I know in about 6 months (if not sooner), Moto won’t even remember it exists, while I have 12 months left on my contract.

            And, this is a matter of opinion, but it’s unethical to market every phone as the best phone in history when you release a new phone 10 minutes later that is then the best in history. It doesn’t lessen the previous phone, but just makes it look like you’re hoodwinking your customers. I’m not sure how someone can’t take any issue with Moto’s current business model.

            I do agree, Moto should release 3 beast every year.

        • Dominick DeVito

          What difference does it make it they come here or not? The point is that they EXIST.

          It’s one thing if they make the same device everywhere every so often. But lately it seems Motorola makes a phone, dumps it, makes a new one.

          Look at the comparison chart released comparing the D3 to the Razr and D4. They’re basically (VZW included) pissing on D3 owners.

          Look, I don’t have to say anything – just read the comments on these posts. Customers are pissed off. Motorola has no idea what they’re doing in terms of customer brand loyalty. They’re making a mockery of themselves.

          • Anonymous

            Regarding the above phones, it’s not news that manufacturers produce different phones with different features for different regions.  Heck, everyone knows that the higher spec’d phones are always abroad.  All manufacturers do this, not just Motorola.
             
            And referring to the chart and how you say that Motorola is “pissing” on D3 owners; I see a chart that displays the D2, D3, D4 and Razr.  Different phones with different specs at different prices for different people’s taste.  I distinctly remember you saying that you encouraged the choices that Android is bringing.  Well, here it is.  Some people don’t care about 4G if it’s not in their area, and they probably wouldn’t want to pay additional funds for a phone that has that capability, so they would probably be content with the D3.  For those who want LTE and a physical keyboard, they offer the D4.  For those who don’t care for a physical keyboard, they offer the Razr. 
             
            And to be honest, the ones I see complaining mostly are the ones who more than likely weren’t going to purchase any of these phones anyways.  Even if by any stretch of the imagination, the “Razr 2” were to get released next month, would I be pissing and moaning?  No.  Why?  Because I’m an adult, and as an adult, I did my research on upcoming phones at the moment and picked the one that I knew I’d be happy with for the long term, 2 years.  Anybody who buys a phone nowadays should be knowledgeable of the fact that the technology keeps evolving, and doesn’t look like it’ll stop anytime soon.  Isn’t that the point?  Don’t we want to see our technology go from the drawing board, into our hands faster?
             
            I say keep the phones coming, I say WE have to adapt our way of thinking to keep up with technology or be left behind.

          • Dominick DeVito

            “Different phones with different specs at different prices for different people’s taste.  I distinctly remember you saying that you encouraged the choices that Android is bringing”

            Wrong. I believe in choice of current phones (Rezound, Razr, Galaxy Nexus etc). The choice of D3, Razr, D4, X2, etc is not a choice. Why would anyone choose the D3 NOW?

            Motorola is outdating their own devices after a very short period of time. That’s not good for business, plus it waters down brand recognition.

            Dude, keep reading these comments – people aren’t happy.

          • Anonymous

            Why would anyone buy a D3 now?  Since you have selective reading, I’ll repost it:

            Okay jerkoff, here it goes.

            Motorola was brought back from the dead, and now that they’re making some money again they’re getting greedy. Yes, we all love choice – but unfortunately Motorola customers aren’t given much of a choice AT THE SAME TIME. Sure, the D4 and the Razr will be two choices in a few weeks, but D1 owners who got an early upgrade thought (at the time) that the D3 was a good option – why? Well, it had great specs, and maybe Moto threw us a bone and wanted this to be the D1 replacement.

            So what happens? 4 months go by and now the D4 is released? That’s not customer loyalty – that’s greed. And now D3 owners are pissed (with the exception of a a few who are brainwashed).

            And yes, when the Razr 2Moto HD comes out in two months – yes, Razr owners will be pissed off. Yes they will. You won’t because you love taking it up the A$$ from Motorola apparently.

          • Anonymous

            You started off strong, then ended weak.  Yes, Motorola came back strong after a period of irrelevance, but going to your argument about customer loyalty, how is it NOT customer loyalty to produce an assortment of phones that would cater to the different tastes and budgets of the consumers?  If this were any company, not just Motorola, I would support it. 
             
            And as for the people griping about a newer phone coming out after they have already made their purchase, how about doing some research, see what’s on the horizon and selecting a device that you’ll be happy with no matter what?  Make a choice and stick with it, if not, pay full retail, it’s that simple.  This is just a matter of people wanting their cake and eating it too; “I want the latest and greatest, but just as long as no one will have a better device than me within two years, cause then I would want that phone and couldn’t afford it.”
             
            And finally, by saying that if you’re a D3 owner and you are either pissed or MUST be “brainwashed” is beyond childish, grow up.

    Moto/ Verizon doesn’t need to release these phones in the states until they include at least:
    OMAP4470 or Tegra3, NFC, 2mp/HD front camera, and ICS (with or without on screen buttons) in addition to 4G, 720HD and 13mp shooter (I’d take 8mp with better sensors/lens, though.)

    Once it has all that, I don’t care how quick Moto puts another phone on Verizon. I don’t think there is a need in the market for a X3, just update the X2 to ICS for a cheap 3G phone. Save the technology leap for a RAZR 2 in the spring.

    Or just put the phones out on non-verizon networks. I think we are all tired of not enough/ now too many phone complaints. But seriously, how many would people would have wanted to spend another $100 for 4G D4 vs 3G D3? They still fill different markets, I want a top-tier 4G qwerty, so I waited. My OG had battery problems, so I picked up a X2 to tie me over until then.
