According to a report out of Bloomberg, Motorola is expected to release a phone with a “edge-to-edge” display during their event next week in NYC. Most people are assuming that they are referring to some super secret version of the DROID RAZR HD, but I find it hard to believe that it will be that phone. We have seen two different test models of the RAZR HD in XT925 and XT926 through pictures and video already, neither of which has an edge-to-edge display. The closest thing we have seen to that from Motorola is the DROID RAZR M, which does have very little bezel and is as close to being edge-to-edge as anything we have seen. And not that the RAZR M is some sort of a disappointment, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
If Motorola had some super-secret edge-to-edge display device that the world has yet to see and also hasn’t cruised through the FCC, this would be the first time in their history that they were able to pull off such a feat. Even the Galaxy S3, which was hidden in dummy boxes and had multiple variants floating around to try and confuse media, was eventually outed before it was released.
Maybe Motorola will surprise us all? I’m not getting my hopes up.
