Droid 4 Release Date Bumped to February 2, 2012

by: Matthew SabatiniDecember 23, 2011

It has been just under 6 months since Motorola released the Droid 3, and it has become clear that the fourth device in the Droid series is on its way. Of course, yesterday, December 22nd, was the rumored date of release. However, the day has come and gone without any definitive word from Verizon or Motorola.

Despite the lack of info from big red, a piece of informations, shown above, has escaped from Verizon’s headquarters. It is pretty clear that the Droid 4 will be landing in Verizon on or around February 2nd, 2012. This quick change of release dates should not come as a shock after the agony Verizon put Galaxy Nexus fans through. However, at least there is a date set for the release.

As of now, the rumored specs suggest that the Droid 4 will carry a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, a 4-inch qHD display, a full QWERTY keyboard, LTE connectivity, 8 MP rear shooter, 1080P video capture, possibly an HD front facing camera, and almost definitely Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In fact, Android 4.0 may be the reason Verizon is holding back the Droid 4. This way, Droid 4 buyers would be able to get the newest version of Android straight out of the box.

Are you looking forward to the slimmest full QWERTY LTE phone? Let us know in the comments below.

    I have been waiting for this phone! It’s tough to continue to wait as my current phone is slowly dying. I hope I can hold out for the Droid 4. When I bought my current phone (which shall remain nameless), I went through 3 returns before I got one that worked. I’ll be happy to wait for Feb is all the bugs are worked out and I only have to do it once.

    my droid 3 is basically dying and will barely power up anymore. is there any QC in these companies anymore or do they just pump out crap mindlessly

  • best luxury phones

  • great so Motorola will release something like the bullet around the same time as this so it can get overshadowed.

    Its probably more lies. Been using by original Droid for like 3 years now….just get a new battery morons…keep it out of water…stop dropping it…and stop downloading porn…and you will be fine. PEACE!

      The answer is they want a new phone, I know I do. I never keep a phone over 2 years, I like the new technolgy
      They come out with every 3 months

    Have original Droid- have been patiently awaiting a 4G with hard keyboard. Patience rewarded. Will be there when it is released.

    I got the droid2 global and its all banged up looking foward to the 5 row keyboard the HDMI output the 8mp camera and the front facing cam aswell, the droid 4 has practically everything u need in a smartphone, fuck iphones, my girl has the iphone 4s and I hate it she barely uses the suri application its fuckn retarded, android has the talk to search app as well. Can’t wait for the droid4 be released. New year I need a new phone verizon hurry the fuck up

  • ooossahh

    I’ve been waiting for this phone I love the droid phones I had the original and changed it every time a new one came in. I’m stoked for the new droid4 I’ve been wanting a 4g. I was thinking about getting the razr but I’m not really to fond of a all virtual phone. Now what a plus for me its a razr with a qwerty. Now the question is “is it webtop compatible?

    I have the Droid 3 and it was a big disappointment. The Droid 4 will most likely be garbage as well. Motorola just is not making good products anymore
