DROID RAZR HD Shows Up in Cellebrite Systems as Model XT926

The DROID RAZR HD by Motorola is starting to appear in Cellebrite systems for 3rd party retailers, giving us at least some sort of a sign that the phone is still on the way. Previously codenamed the DROID Fighter, we thought that this phone would have been out by now (previous targeted release dates), but Verizon and Motorola seem to be taking their sweet time. Other than this being in Cellebrite systems, we can’t take much else from it except the model number of XT926 which matches up to previous sightings

According to benchmarks, pictures of the phone, and other back alley rumors, we are expecting the RAZR HD to have around a 4.6″ HD (720p) display, on-screen navigation keys, a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 12 or 13MP camera, Ice Cream Sandwich, and 4G LTE. Think of it as the ultimate RAZR, assuming it has the MAXX’s 3300mAh battery.

I know that Motorola still gets plenty of hate from the developer community, but I’ve got to admit that I’m pretty excited about this device. After seeing what they have done to Blur and Android 4.0, and then imagining that with an HD screen, beast processor, top notch camera, and on-screen soft keys, how could you not be?

    I cant wait for this phone just like the gs3 it will be a amazing step forward i think in the right direction .lets just hope that motorola will actually unlock the boot loader for the developers to have a crack at it. if not this device will fail like previous models im sure and samsung and htc will prevail for sure.I really hope that google will have some say so this time in the phone since they own them now… please unlock it!

  • please make it smaller to hold…. im 6’3 with average size hands and i hate holding my x2. then my roommate got the razor, that thing is crazy big. phone companies need to design phones that are to be held with hands..

  • Tyler Chappell

    This phone is simply too little too late. Like seriously.

  • Cellphone Fiend

    As far as the Android platform, Motorola is about the only company that uses premium building materials. Not the cheap creaking squeaking plastic that Samsung uses. When you hold a Motorola you can feel the solid quality through and through. Plus they have the best radios. Motorola will definitely get my money when the Razr HD is released.

  • Typical Google minion says:

    I wont buy this phone cuz it has a locked bootloader. To me thats #1 thing about a phone.I love my G Nex becuase it has an unlocked bootloader and its not locked down junk. My G nex has a great camera I dont know what people complain about they must be isheep trolls lol

    Cell phone company 🙂 can I pay you $30 dollars to stay with you and be your prisoner for 2 years? Cell phone company take my $30 “upgrade punishment” so I can give you $2,000 or more the next 2 years. Maybe if Im lucky I will get a droid that has alot of bugs and not thought out completely. Cell phone company I want to pay you so you can mirco manage me. Please cell phone company take my “upgrade punishment fee. Please strip of my unlimited data, then arrange a script to make it sound great. All the other cell phone companies do it so we will to, you jump I jump. Lets make up any excuse possible cause the public will not waive. Can I please have a crappy droid to?

  • I’m really excited for this phone. I’m hoping it doesn’t come out in the fall. I’ve been eligible for an upgrade since July 2011. It’s been a fight day in day out, but i’ve be waiting for something to really fit me personally. I tried the Nexus, but it just wasn’t for me. I’m hoping this RAZR HD is my next phone, or i’m just going to have to settle on something that doesn’t light my fire.

  • is it going to be amoled?

    • taglogical

      Hopefully it will be LCD

  • now i have to figure out how to time the sale of my razr maxx

  • adam

    I just bought the Maxx -_____-

  • aw bummer. i have unlimited data, and ive been upgrade-eligible since february, hoping to wait for this to come out and use my final upgrade.

  • brando56894

    This thing looks pretty damn nice, as long it has the maxx’s battery and has an unlockable bootloader!

  • Destroythanet

    So are they going back to the small battery, only to release the RAZR MAXX HD with the larger battery a few months later?

  • Dude

    Locked Bootloader, DoA

    • sgtguthrie

      Maybe, we’ll see. I’m holding onto hope that Google makes that change effective immediately 😉

  • Call me when XT898 shows up.

  • Dan Livingston

    My guess is we won’t see this phone until they release the new shared data plan.

  • YourFriend

    You people that go on and on about how this should have been the original Droid Razr make me sick. Then by your logic, the Galaxy Nexus sucks and GSIII is what it should have been, or the HTC One X is what the Rezound should have been and the PS3 is what the original PlayStation should have been.

    • jak_341

      Nope. The GNex is about as good as a phone as you could ask for. You can’t beat it.

      • MooleyBooleyTroll

        Good Phone and Samsung Device in same sentence? WTF??

  • LionStone

    That’s a nice looking phone. Yes, I would’ve loved to have set my pop up with one of these but the Droid Razr is fine for him for his first smartphone. I think it’s fine that they started out with a bare bones version first. It’s nice to have choices and it’ll be nice to compare the Razr HD with whatever beast HTC puts out later in the Fall.

  • 92slammer

    it will get released after they do the shared data crap…

  • HDTre

    12/13 megapixel camera sounds good but high megapixels haven’t done much for me.Take for example the 8 megapixel from the current razr. Sounds good but compared the the Iphone cameras it’s a joke.

    • Jon

      Yeah if you want a really good camera, you won’t find one in any of the Motorola phones. They have never really bothered with a decent camera…even back to the original Droid days. Kind of sad, cause their hardware is otherwise quite excellent.

  • phoneman67

    I was smart enough to wait for this phone. I want HD!

    • Hocky

      I made a decision to wait for this one as well. I think it will be well worth it. With specs like those and seeing the new Motorola skin, there is only one great man to quote:

      “Shut up and take my money!”

    • Sobr0801

      I just got the Rezound and have been enjoying HD since February. But it does look damn fine.

  • Al

    As long as ics still retains the ability to disable ALL aps then bloatware will be a little more tolerable.

    • noyfb

      Not if verizon has anything to say about it!

      • Taglogical

        Even if Verizon has something to say about it, are we at least all on board the ‘blame motorola flame-war-ship’ together?

        Cause I mean, if we can’t blame Motorola for all things Nexus and Non-Nexus, I just don’t know… someone hold my hand.

    • Not all, but most. Backup Assistant + is sadly one that you can’t lock away in a dungeon.

  • We saw the Bionic on cellebrite last year around this time also, and we know how that ended up. Moto has the opportunity to release a home run, I hope they dont delay it to the point that its DOA like the Bionic.

    • It’s possible they delay powerful handsets like that on purpose for the sake of creating a lower price point that still performs relatively well.

  • Michael Forte

    This phone should have been the original RAZR. No Bionic, no RAZR, no RAZR MAXX, just this. Instead, Moto screws customers over and over again.

    • The Rezound should have been the the Droid Incredible 2. So what?

    • How? It has on screen buttons and a S4. When the OG Razr came out, ICS source wasnt out and the S4 hadnt been released. People need to chill. The razr came out 7 moths ago. and was top of the line at the time, this is a great evolution.

      • hkklife

        I agree but the OG Razr should had the Maxx’s battery from the start, as well as a 4.5″ or 4.6″ qHD screen. That bezel is just too hugeb and the overall width too wide for a measly 4.3″screen.

        • It isn’t so much that they released updated versions, it’s the fact that it happened so fast. If they’d released the RAZR and MAXX at the same time, no one could complain. Well, except for Bionic owners. They got the short stick.

      Relax, the only ones who are claiming that Moto users feel screwed over are non-Moto users.

      • azndan4

        Sry dude, you can’t make such a generalized statement. I’ve had a Droid 1, 2, X, and Bionic and I felt screwed over with all of them except the Droid 1.

  • chris125

    They are waiting for their new share data plans before releasing any new phones.

    • I think well see the Incredible 4G before they do, but that’s it. Galaxy SIII and Razr HD will be after they go with shared. It’s a cheap move, but expected.

      • Dammit. Im just going to buy a Razr Maxx. I was hoping they would do it before the stupid iPhoe

        • Hocky

          I bet you the Razr HD will be out before the iPhone 5 will be.

      • dude

        I hope you are wrong.

      • Sounds about right. I’d really hate it if VZW gives us this low blow. I want to upgrade one of the lines for this phone

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        What’s the expected ETA for the shared plan switch?

        • Stingray

          id like to know that as well….

      • Chuck

        Have OG droid, unlimited data should I wait for the HD, and give up unlimited data, or go for the Maxx today. Or possibly neither?

        • michael

          go maxx unlimited now, before the june 4th cut off, and if you don’t like it, exchange it for another phone until it comes out in a few weeks.

          • evltwn

            Why June 4th? VZW hasn’t announced the dates for the new data plans yet.

      • Stin

        But what if one is not a family plan? are we still stuck?

  • David Hayden

    If only this is what they came out with originally, I might’ve considered it over the Rezound. Maybe next time Motorola.
