DROID RAZR HD Will Essentially Look Just Like This Device

It has been over a month since we were last treated to a DROID RAZR HD sighting. Thanks to leaks out of China, we were able to take a peak at a device that was once codenamed the “Fighter” that looked a heck of a lot like previous RAZR releases. Well, except for the HD screen and on-screen soft keys. Thanks to China again this morning, we have pictures of a similar device with model number MT887 which is almost identical to what we will see here in the U.S. The device has that same HD screen and on-screen keys along with Ice Cream Sandwich. If you were wondering how Motorola would do the on-screen soft keys deal, this would be it. Thankfully they did not take the Samsung approach and change the order of them.

What else do we know about the RAZR HD? Along with the HD screen, we will likely also see a dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip inside clocked at 1.5GHz, 12 or 13MP camera, 3300mAh battery from the MAXX, and 4G LTE. And yes, I agree with what you are about to type – this should have been the original RAZR from day 1. We didn’t need 3 or 4 renditions before we got here.

    This is frustrating I buy the razr 2 weeks later buy the razr maxx I’ve had this one for maybe 2 in a half weeks now I’m hearing about the HD it has stock ics HD screen the maxx battery everything the original razr should of been. I wont be buying it because they will come out with another one with minor tweaks

    THE RAZR Maxx is just an extended battery. Samae exact phone as the RAZR. Since the RAZR has a sealed battery compartment, Verizon offers an extended battery version called the Maxx.
    Some bloggers have no idea how wireless marketing works. The name of the game is accessory sales and activations. Verizon only offers subsidized handsets as a courtesy to the customer.

    Verizon has the best network but they are at back of the line when it comes to new devices. Their line up is pathetic. We are 1/2 way into 2012 and they have not released one premier device (other than Razr with a better battery). AT&T is constantly releasing new devices, i.e. Galaxy Note, HTC One X, ect. Verizon better get it together real soon. If this Razr HD is not out when my contact is up in 7 weeks, Im leaving for better devices.

    So…bought the Droid Bionic after waiting forever for it to come out.
    Two months later, buy the RAZR at full price because it’s way beyond the bionic and don’t want to have an outdated phone after less than 60 days. Love the RAZR, except for the battery life and screen.
    One month later, I am extremely frustrated with a phone I like because the battery is awful. I’ve gotten over the screen, but now I’m finding out that the “early 2012″ upgrade to ICS will be more like 3rd quarter.
    Another month and I’m buying ANOTHER Motorola device at full retail, the RAZR MAXX. I’m now up to about $1500 in phones in 6 months but at least my battery lasts.
    Now there’s YET ANOTHER flagship Motorola device coming shortly to address the screen and ICS?
    I get that new phones will always come out, but 4 top tier flagship devices from the same manufacturer from mid September to April

    • Tolip

      I couldn’t agree more. It’s like apple releasing the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, and 4S all in the same year! Let the folks who bought your top device actually have your top device for a few months!

    • Droidlover

      Amen. I’m okay with new phones coming out, and I actually want to buy the RAZR HD, but seriously Motorola, this is like Toyota coming out with a new Camry every 3 months…

  • ck123

    when????? When will we see this phone?

    i mean this looks nice… but im never buying another motorola product ever again.

    NEW SOCIAL NETWORK FOR ANDROID – Picaim

    Picaim is a project that aims to become a social network to see and share things that are happening in your city and in the world.
    The service is based on sharing geo-located photos of things that are happening in your city.

    The great idea is that photos can not be sent by the computer, just for mobile devices, and only at the moment they were captured. This measure helps prevent false information inserted in the social network.

    This means, you see what is happening, what the person who took the photo has to say, and where that is happening at the moment what is happening.
    You can see content classified by what is happening in your city.

    Also you can post anonymously, if you wish to protect their identity to share with the world.

    Anyone can see what is happening in your city on our web site, without registration or application for mobile.

    The project was launched this week, still has very few users, and we are asking for help to all who possess an android phone, just download the application, test and share with friends in your city.

    To check out the project, visit:
    http://www.picaim.com

    The application for Android already available in the market!

    Help us to share with the twitter hashtag: #PicaimForAndroid

    OBS.: If you can not take the picture because of the gps location, try again in an open environment.

    Unskinned Android? Ability to unlock the bootloader? No? Pass.

    I would be ok with Moto just doing like HTC does through a website. Then they can keep track of which devices have been unlocked and deny all warranty and support issues. 

  • Nick Bohl

    dude.. screw unlocked bootloader.. this thing is a juggernaut. WANT

  • http://www.DavidPat.com David Pat

    This is easily going to be the best Android phone when it is released. Moto wins just for having the best build quality without fear of chips or cracks. 

  • Bob

    Ya right..Motorola will not have a snapdragon processor in it, are you joking?  The 1.2ghz processor in the razrs right now are way better than the 1.5ghz snapdragon currently being used in phones like the LG Spectrum.  Snapdragon processor’s are crap and Moto is not.

    • F150Fan

      If you have seen anything on the new Snapdragon S4 chips you would know that they are no slouch, not even close. They are besting the Tegra 3 in certain tests. I would gladly welcome the S4 in the RAZR HD. It has the LTE controller built into the SOC, this equals battery savings. Also, the new S4 chip is based on Cortex A15 28nm technology, much smaller than the current 45nm of the Cortex A9. This basically means higher efficiency, faster overall processing, and again, battery savings. Also the new Adreno GPU is a very good unit as well. Just my two cents. 

  • cbkcc1

    anyone know if this will be global?

    • mustardhomie

      I would be sold on this razr if it was global.  

  • Nick Letsom

    I would consider replacing my Nexus with this if Motorola didn’t lock their bootloaders…

  • Lovehate

    See the thing is most people buy their phones under contact..everyone’s upgrade is at a different time.so what people are saying its they shouldn’t be able to buy a newer spec’d phone cause you jumped early. Well damn you moto damn you.

  • Lew

    How does this screen stack up to the others that’re out there. I tend to use my phone a TON for viewing  videos and games. (Long daily train rides ftw. I’ve been putting off getting a tablet because I don’t want to carry additional tech around all day)

    Where does this screen fit in vs something like the new IPhne screen which is supposed to be very good etc?

  • Butters619

     Ok then the SGS3 isn’t a new phone because all it added was a few upgraded parts.

    • Liderc

      We don’t know that yet because we haven’t seen the design or the real specs. 

  • cardi

    man the more ad more i hear of this phone i get pissed. why couldn’t motarola just be patient and released the razr with all of these specs and battery. glad i won my razr free from verizon. thanks to kellex giving up the inside scoop. now should i buy a conversion kit to the max or just wait for the razr hd i think i will be unlike motarola patient and wait for the razr hd

  • http://www.facebook.com/billyNOTnice Billy Gladfelter

    I’m excited to see this phone. I hope it’s release is in the near future. I’d like to pick it up.

  • Bigdav1178

    Slap the Droid 4 keyboard on this and call it the Droid 4 HD, and I’d be buying =D

  • unaffected

    The battery alone would make it more of an upgrade from the original Razr than the 4s was to the 4

  • Division by Zero

    Why get this? Motorola is famous for making a bunch of variations of the same phone. I’m sure a Droid RAZR HD MAXX, or even a Droid RAZR HD MAXX slider will be along in a month or two.

  • ABerry5

    This should have been the razr? Cmon kellex we’re 6 months past that release.. the maxx shoulda been the razr but this is a completely new phone released a half year later..

    And I agree with the posters why the hell are manufacturers keeping such large bezels when they add on screen buttons? My guess for this phone at least is they had to stuff that 3300mah battery somewhere.. but I’m happy with the bezel on my gnex..it doesn’t look like wasted space at least but of course I’d love if it was edge to edge.. when the screen is off though you really can’t see what is screen and what is bezel which is cool

    • kixofmyg0t

       Because Motorola is only allowed to release ONE phone every two years. That’s what I’m seeing here.

      • kixofmyg0tsuks

        Im glad your getting typing your long winded post dude,your truely a motorola fan boi .

  • BlueLetter

    This should’ve been the Razr? It’s been half a year. I don’t think pushing the Razr back 6 months after the Bionic would’ve been a good idea from a business perspective…

  • itachi85

    i dont know about you guys but i think i will wait 3 months after they release this, for the Razr HD Maxxx! Whos with me????? lollls

  • Bionic

    Would love to have this phone. Another quality Motorola product.

    in b4 DROID RAZR MAXX HD

  • http://profiles.google.com/djnapieralski DJ Napieralski

    I have a galaxy nexus, but may actually get this. My dad has a bionic, and having the phones in the exact same spot, my nexus gets 2 bars of 3g while his gets 2 bars of 4g. I don’t know what moto uses for it’s radios, but its damn good.

    • Bionic

      Yup Motorola radios can’t be beat.

  • jjrudey

    dat bezel

    • Bionic

      Dat azz

  • fanboy1974

    “We didn’t need 3 or 4 renditions before we got here.”
    You took the words right out of my mouth.  Motorola could have kept the Bionic around and then release the Droid 4.  The Razr HD would have been a monster release this year but Motorola watered the experience down with incremental updates to hardware and ice sandwich is still a no show.  

  • Cindykopj

    any idea of when we will see this phone?

  • VerizonCustomerNYC

    So after three months of this release Moto and Verizon will release the Droid Razr HD Maxx

    • LiterofCola

      Thats the first time I’ve heard that joke!

  • NorCalGuy

    This is the phone race I have been looking for… the HD and the “next galaxy” if moto keeps the files all the same as they did for the razr and maxx then this phone will be amazing but so will the next galaxy and all of the rumored specs …. this is why I love android so many amazing phones to choose from. Needless to say my nexus will be replace by one of these phones for sure, might even get both and give one to the gf so I can have the best two phones at once.

  • perfectlyreasonabletoo

    A “peak” is the top of something.  A “peek” is a look at something.

  • Joe Buck

    Wow all this and the maxx battery ,this would be a very hot item
