Beefier DROID RAZR Variants Heading to China

November 15, 2011

There’s no doubt that the Motorola RAZR is a big hit in the U.S. with its slim and sleek form. But, travel halfway around the world and you’ll get a different story: China will soon be enjoying three different flavors of the RAZR–but with beefier specs.

What made Motorola come out with three versions of the RAZR is largely due to the different networks used across different Chinese carriers that are incompatible with each other. Fortunately, the U.S. phone manufacturer decided to please potential Chinese customers with its recent Android phone releases. And, since the RAZR variants are specifically made for mainland China, don’t bother exporting these exotic goods elsewhere. They just won’t work.

As shown in the image above, the phone atop the other two is headed for China Telecom’s CDMA2000 network. Known as the XT928, the device sports a whopping 13-MP camera and is certified with Dolby Digital Plus. Size and weight are still unknown as of writing, although the phone closely resembles the DROIC Bionic or DROID X series.

The middle phone, called the MT917, is targeted towards the TD-SCDMA network used by China Mobile. Its appearance is similar to the first DROID RAZR with a couple of distinct parts such as rounded edges and a thicker body. It will feature a 4.5-inch 720p HD display.

No official release dates have been stated so far, although rumors claim availability by the end of the year.

Have you ordered the DROID RAZR?  And, does it satisfy your need for a muscular Android smartphone?
