As the final countdown for the expected launching of the Motorola DROID RAZR on Verizon Wireless narrows down to just a few hours, recent reports have sprung up regarding confirmed official specs for the Android smartphone.

According to Boy Genius Report (BGR) insider sources, the Motorola DROID RAZR (also codenamed the Motorola DROID HD and the Motorola Spyder) is confirmed to have a 1.2-GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM, which is practically twice the RAM on the iPhone 4 or the iPhone 4S.

Moreover, the DROID RAZR is confirmed to have the same screen size of 4.3 inches as the internationally acclaimed power phone, the Samsung Galaxy S II.  The device is also coming with 4G LTE radios.  Yet, despite the tendency of LTE radios to make devices thicker than usual, BGR’s source mentioned that the Motorola DROID RAZR will become the current thinnest 4G LTE smartphone and will be much thinner and faster than the iPhone 4S.

Motorola’s teaser video for the Motorola DROID RAZR touts the device as “faster, thinner, smarter, stronger” but without explicitly mentioning whom the device is being compared to. Quite many people believe that the comparison is directed at the recently launched iPhone 4S.  There had already been leaks about the DROID RAZR specs, but new “confirmations” are circulating about the DROID RAZR’s features being better than the iPhone 4S specs.

Other features that the DROID RAZR is rumored to have are an 8-megapixel rear camera and an HD front camera, 1080p video recording, image stabilization, Motorola’s webtop,  and a new version of the Motorola Lapdock .  All of these will probably be all packed together on top of an Android 2.3.5.

The device is also expect to have a strong casing to protect its powerful hardware inside.  Rumor has it that the casing will be molded from Kevlar and will have water-proof coating.  The display is expected to be protected by Gorilla Glass Display.

If the DROID RAZR does come out faster, thinner, smarter, and stronger than the iPhone 4S or other Android smartphones, will you be getting one for yourself?
