The Motorola Droid RAZR HD has popped up once again though Verizon continues to be mum about the highly anticipated device and its release date.
Motorola’s Droid RAZR HD has leaked out numerous times since it initially surfaced in April. And while we have seen bits and pieces of the device and even purported photos, we still have no idea when the Droid RAZR HD is going to be hitting shelves.
It’s clear that there is a lot of interest in this phone. Both the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX are popular phones, however, they don’t boast HD screen resolution. Many consumers are hoping that the Droid RAZR HD will combine both HD screen quality and a battery the size of the 3,300mAh battery found in the Droid RAZR MAXX.
Combined those with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box, and Motorola and Verizon could have another hit on their hands.
Problem is, no one knows when to expect the device to arrive.
As of yet, there hasn’t even been a rumored Droid RAZR HD release date. There have only leaks showcasing the devices specs, which are impressive, and the Droid RAZR HD itself which appears to be very similar to the Droid RAZR MAXX and Droid RAZR from a design standpoint.
However, that release date might be coming soon. First, the device has leaked out in some GLBenchmarks that confirm its 720p display and its speedy Snapdragon S4 processor. Droid-Life was the first to discover those benchmarks which, while not an indication of an imminent release, mean that the device is at least still around.
Second, AT&T is about to release the Motorola Atrix HD, a device that is very similar to the Droid RAZR in terms of design and boasts a stellar 720p display.
While we haven’t heard anything specific, it would make sense if the Atrix HD were to launch and then, after it’s given some breathing room, to see the Droid RAZR HD finally launch on Verizon.
With the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX upgraded to Android 4.0, the Samsung Galaxy S III now available on all four U.S. carriers, the iPhone 5 launch on the way, and the Atrix HD hitting shelves in a couple of days, Verizon would be smart to finally divulge some official information about the Droid RAZR HD’s release date.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled.
Anyone still holding out for the Droid RAZR HD?
