It looks like the Motorola Droid Razr HD isn’t just a figment of our imagination, as pictures of the actual device have leaked online. What’s even better, the folks at Droid-Life have spotted some benchmarks result of the Droid Razr HD. Let’s go through the whole thing.
Fans of the Razr will be pleased to see that Motorola hasn’t taken any drastic measures to alter the look of its Razr lineup. Back in full force is the Kevlar back cover, which now adorns the whole back part of the phone. The micro HDMI and USB ports are placed on the bottom of the phone, and despite the noticeable lack of a hump on the back, rumor has it the Droid Razr HD will come equipped with a 3,300mAh juice pack. We do wonder how they’re going to fit such monstrous battery into such a slim phone.
Gone as well, apparently, are the capacitive keys on the front, to be replaced by a set of on-screen buttons. This should make Google a very happy camper.
Confirmed specs of the Droid Razr HD are still rather hard to come by. But thanks to a certain NenaMark2 benchmark test, which shows — among other things — the device’s 59.10 FPS result, it’s all but confirmed that the Droid Razr HD will be sporting a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and the accompanying Adreno 225 GPU. While the size of the display is unknown, it will have a 1196 x 720 resolution, which falls in line with previous expectation. Lastly, the benchmark result tells us that the phone will come with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Droid Razr HD is expected to come to Verizon (it’s quite obvious from the pictures) hopefully in the next two months. Do the leaked pictures and possible specs exceed your expectation? Having second thoughts about pre-ordering the Galaxy S3 on Verizon now?

They should make an announcement before the S3 or they will lose a ton of sales to people who don’t want to wait an unknown period of time.
I am in agreement with this. The longer MOTO waits the more sales they will lose. I myself have already pre-ordered the S3. Alot of influence on my decision is the fact that the HD has been a rumor for a while now but know confirmation
im willing to wait a couple more months on an upgrade that ive already waited for anyway….id like to hold the gs3 and razr hd in my hands before dropping 200+ on a phone, especially if everyone and their mother is going to have the gs3.
This is the phone I want, sounds perfect to what I fancy having in a phone upgrade, but I need it to come to the UK, boy do I hope a GSM HSPA version comes to the UK.
I’m a Moto user with my Droid X. I’ve been tossing around the idea of (3) phones, for various reasons. 1) the Razr, as it’s a huge upgrade from my Droid X, 2) the iPhone, but not unless they come out with a 4″ or better screen and 3) the Samsung Gal S3. As others have noted, I’m moving towards the S3 as it gets stronger feedback from various review sites I like, such as mobiletechreview.com However, the Razr HD looks great with what info is available, but here is the problem. I’m a Verizon user. My contract ends on 6/27. On 6/28, Verizon will change their data plans to the new Shared Plan. My current phone plan I get unlimited data, and I get 5GB of data on my MiFi. If one waits to upgrade, from 3G to 4G, after 6/28, you can only keep unlimited data if you pay the full price of the phone. This means I’d have to pay the full price of the Razr HD if I went that route, and I’m guessing that will be about $649. If I pre-order an S3 now, or upgrade to Razr, I get to keep my unlimited data plan on the phone. I will say, I’ve have had many issues with the Droid X (I’m on my 3rd). I participate with the Moto Droid X Test Group; we get the Android updates a couple of months prior to general release. Many in the group continue to complain how Motoblur (which Moto doesn’t use the term anymore), causes issues: corrupting photos, forcing video to close, loss of txt messages, the list goes on. I worry Razr will have those same issues as long as Moto continues to manipulate the Android OS to their liking.
Blur isn’t bad at all on RAZR. Since they are switching to Qualcom, i don’t really know how it will function for HD, but on RAZR, its actually pretty impressive. Better than Sense, or your version of Blur. My old DX is now just an Angry Birds phone for the kids. Maxx was certainly an improvement over DX and Thunderbolt. Motocast, Smart Actions, and Webtop are very nice Blur-only additions.
