According to a rumor out of a site called Hot Hardware, a “very reliable source” has indicated to them that Motorola is going to release both a DROID RAZR HD and a RAZR MAXX HD, but not until October. Their source was not able to confirm any specs, but Motorola employees have done a marvelous job of providing us with those through image hosting and benchmark sites. The FCC filing for the phone gave us some goods too, like the 2530mAh battery it will hold. This person with knowledge of the situation also mentioned that the launch could depend on how many regular RAZR and RAZR MAXX devices they sell leading into the fall season. That seems a bit odd, especially since that build is almost a year old, which is an eternity in the Android game.
All I have to say, is that Motorola would be committing 2012 suicide if they wait until October to release this phone. We all know that Apple is going to drop a new iPhone on us in September, so if you want to make a splash and sell some units as an OEM, you better get whatever it is you’ve got out the door before that happens. And I don’t mean the week before, I mean like next week.
I’m also not sure that I’m fully buying into there being a RAZR MAXX HD, but then again, that beautiful 3300mAh battery that was tucked in the original RAZR MAXX is missing from the RAZR HD. Since massive battery life has been the number 1 selling point for the MAXX, we shouldn’t be surprised if Motorola does have a second model in their bag of tricks.
