    After the release of the Motorola Atrix HD, all eyes are now on Moto’s next RAZR offering, the Droid RAZR HD. Pictures of the phone in real life have leaked along with a benchmark result on the side, but there’s still no word yet on its availability. But it looks we won’t have to wait for too long for the first Droid RAZR phone to sport an HD display to arrive on Verizon.

    FCC has recently given its green light for the Motorola XT926, otherwise known as the Droid RAZR HD. The filing shows that the world phone is compatible with Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Aside from that, it doesn’t give away much else – except that Big Red should have no problem announcing the phone anytime now.

     

    As for what the Droid RAZR HD will be packing, the phone is expected to come with an HD display (obviously), a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 13MP rear camera, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and possibly a 3,300mAh battery.

    Seeing that Verizon is still reveling in the afterglow of the Galaxy S3’s success, it may be a month or two before the Droid RAZR HD is released. It’ll be well worth the wait for fans of the RAZR series and its Kevlar back cover.

    How excited are you about the Droid RAZR HD? Let us know in the comments below.

      To me this device is sort of a shame. And it’s not what it is but really when it is.
      The issue for me is that I’ve already been waiting for this device for a while now. If Moto does indeed place this device as a month or two out still, I might as well just wait for the new Nexus device(s) in November. a month ago, I would have bought this handset in a heartbeat. I love, love, love Moto’s build qualities and radios. I love the wacky straight out of a sci-fi Kevlar material that they have started using. And that Maxx battery is just amazing… but now I feel that 1 gig of ram, a dual-core S4, coupled with a 720p display is everywhere now and right around the corner is the beginning of newer hardware and OSs that will be more cutting edge. Don’t get me wrong, I love what Moto has shown off in regards to their ICS flavor… It’s stocky, simple, attractive, fast, organized, and sports some useful non-gimmicky features. But why get a knock-off when you can get the real deal in early November with the launch of the new Nexus devices… Especially when Verizon will more than likely send it out with a locked bootloader. I just feel that cool looks and a big battery won’t be enough to keep me from waiting for the next best thing. A device that will launch at the beginning of a new age and not in the middle of one. I feel like quad-core, 2 gig, 4.1.0 (possibly 5.0?), better cameras, and batteries are right around the corner and that Moto might just be a bit late to the game releasing this is August or September.

        Totally agree. They are bringing these specs too late to the party. A phone without 2 gigs ram won’t work for 2 years for me. Might as well wait to see what fall releases bring.

      based on the updated specs and lower battery life, i’m starting to be more pleased with my S3 pick up. since big red’s new plans were forcing my hand, i had to make a move and was scared of buyer’s remorse because the razr hd had so much potential. this gives me a sigh of relief. of course i would have loved to be in position to buy the next nexus, but the S3, like every other new phone, is such an upgrade over my dying a855 that i’m more then satisfied.
